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, versatile test system 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 and assembly and work in research and development. It all culminated with his passion for engineering to create a beta version of the Profiler system.
Flash forward, and the Profiler family of diagnostic products has grown to include the Profiler Mini, Profiler Online, the Profiler SRV with the ability to test control, block, and pressure safety relief valves. We continue to add new features and accessories for specific testing requirements within the industries we serve.
After two years of development, a small Utah service and repair company expressed interest in Profiler and 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.
