AUSA Sustaining Member Profile

Corporate Structure - Founded 1956 by Thomas G. Faria Sr. President and CEO: David M. Hrckey. Headquarters: P.O. Box 983, 385 Norwich-New London Turnpike, Uncasville, CT 06382. Telephone: 860-848-9271. Website: www.faria-instruments.com.

The Thomas G. Faria Corporation is a vertically integrated International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001 company, manufacturing world-class instrumentation in Connecticut for more than 50 years. The company has grown from primarily producing tachometers for the marine and auto industries into a company that today offers a multitude of analog and digital engine-monitoring instruments to a wide range of global markets.

Faria got its start producing tachometers with the Ford Motor Company, designing and producing tachometers for the famed Mustang and Shelby Cobra and later supplying gauges to Volkswagen of America and Chrysler Corporation. During this early history Faria was producing more than 1 million tachometers per year.

By the late 1970s Faria's customer base expanded to include such industrial equipment manufacturers as Caterpillar, Allis Chalmers, International Harvester, Bobcat, and stationary power equipment and gen-set manufacturers, all of which found Faria instruments to be rugged enough to withstand the harshest environments.

In 1997 Faria became an ISO 9001 registered company and continues to maintain the same commitment to quality as an ISO 9001:2008 registered company. Faria has a long history of introducing innovative new technology to meet the growing needs of its customers.

Faria developed the first programmable electronic speedometer for motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and snowmobiles. It has been a major supplier to Harley Davidson and Polaris, while also becoming the leading supplier of instruments to the recreational boat market.

Faria is also a major supplier of instrumentation to the U.S. military, providing instruments used in a wide range of vehicles including the MIAI Abrams tank, personnel carriers and various other utility vehicles. …
