Manufacturer of Precision Closure Inspection Equipment
Food Instrument Corporation (FIC) was incorporated in 1965 by company
President Richard V. Kudlich to provide precision closure inspection equipment
for laboratory and quality control analysis for the canning industry. From an austere beginning,
FIC has steadily grown in size, scope and volume. Laboratory instrument applications were
quickly followed by customer requests for on line, automated instruments to improve product quality
and process efficiency. Initial on line instruments proved successful and gained widespread demand
in the Food & Beverage processing community.
Specifically, the exceptional demand for the original ADR (Automatic Deflection Rejecter) led to
company expansion, growth and widespread recognition for reliable, easily used, accurate equipment
at competitive, market leading pricing, augmented by a relentless pursuit of quality in products
and customer service.
Since then, FIC has been engaged in the development, manufacture and worldwide distribution
of automated equipment for the online detection and removal of containers with defective closures
for more than thirty five years. Our staff designed and was granted patents for the first successful
online instruments to offer food and beverage processors protection against improperly sealed or
leaking containers. We continue to improve our products to meet the changing needs of the industry
and to incorporate the advancing technology of food processing and packaging.
Our quality control monitoring equipment is used all over the world, by every size and type of food
processor on virtually every size, shape and composition container. Closure inspection continues to
remain the core interest and company orientation. Our concentrated focus on the quality of our
equipment and customer service has resulted in successful accomplishments in the Food and beverage
industry along with the introduction of new models, which like the original ADR, establish new
standards for inspection precision, ease of operation and features, and a facility sized to
accommodate the growing needs of the company, customers and products well into the 21st century.
