Burns Engineering Inc.

Our engineering heritage: half a century of inspiration and industry leadership.

Since 1960, Burns Engineering has been an industry leader in the design and manufacture of temperature sensors and transmitters for the process and OEM industries. During that time, product quality and customer service along with innovative engineering have been top priorities in the Burns Engineering business philosophy. Our engineers are committed to your process confidence and will customize an approach to meet your specific measurement challenge.

Why is the Burns team committed to the customers’ success?

We have long ago realized that each of us, our families and our friends stake our lives, safety, health and enjoyment on the products our customers produce. The instruments and guidance we provide, play an important role in these processes. We know that what we do matters, because what our customers do matters to all of us. Also, as engineers and technical minded folks, we love to design, create and discover.

A company built on values.

Burns core values are the cornerstone upon which our business is built. Don Burns, the founder of Burns Engineering Inc., instilled these values over the years and as second-generation owners, Jim and JD continue to be committed to these core values – ensuring strong business ethics and integrity, bringing our temperature expertise to all of our work, focusing on best quality practices, valuing each others contribution, and solid financial performance.

These values ensure growth and security for the Burns team and a long term source of supply for those we serve.
