Our founder James Davis came up with the idea for the Profiler™ system in 1997 when he began using a new software package. After hauling heavy test equipment and car batteries through processing plants while working for the Flowserve Corporation, he saw a need for a lightweight test system with a versatile design for performing valve diagnostic analysis, primarily while onsite.
He added his knowledge of robotics, automation, test software development, and electronics combined with his experience in valve assembly and work in research and development. It all culminated with his passion for engineering to create a beta version of the Profiler™ system.
After two years of development, a small Utah service and repair company expressed interest in Profiler™ and in beta testing the system. On November 1, 1999, SofTek Engineering, LLC officially launched, and Profiler™ was introduced to valve manufacturers, valve repair facilities, and end-users worldwide.
Flash forward, and the Profiler™ family of products has grown to include the Profiler Mini™, Profiler Online™, and Profiler SRV™, as well as add-on test accessories for specific testing and industries.
