Our Story

How We Got Started

Established in October 1959, the J.M. Devine Co., Inc. represents the manufacturers of the latest available scientific instrumentation. Throughout the six New England states, the firm began its distribution network with spectroscopy equipment. Instruments such as infrared spectrophotometers, optical emission spectrographs, and vapor pressure and gravity systems were the company’s initial offerings.

Entry Into Nondestructive Testing

By introducing Krautkramer Ultrasonics, Inc., in 1963, the company entered into the newly developing nondestructive testing (NDT) arena. Krautkramer Ultrasonics was a subsidiary of Krautkramer Koln, Germany to the New England market.

Increased Sales

Sales and market preparation steadily increased through the 1960s with the addition of customers such as

  • General Electric.
  • Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.
  • General Dynamics Electric Boat Corp.
  • Factory Mutual Labs.
  • Bath Iron Works.
  • The Pratt & Whitney Plants In CT & Maine.

Manufacturers Merger

In 1972, Smith Kline Corporation acquired Krautkramer Germany, the owner of Branson Instruments Company, and the two manufacturers merged to form Krautkramer Branson, Inc. The J.M. Devine Co expanded and was incorporated in 1972.

NDT Market

During the 1970s, the rapid growth of the NDT market caused the J. M. Devine Co to broaden its product offerings and acquire additional lines to complement its various NDT technologies of X-ray, ultrasonic, penetrant, magnetic particle, and eddy current.
