In 1968 Digatron in Germany produced its first battery testers which gave excellent reliability and accuracy. So it is not surprising that some of this equipment is still in operation today.

In the same decade in Connecticut Firing Circuits Inc. started its production of rectifiers and inverters, initially for the plating industry and later on for the battery industry. The acquisition of Firing Circuits Inc. took place in 1988.

In 1994, after China opened the market for Western products, Digatron set up a production facility in Qingdao, China. In 2010 and 2011 the company again expanded its production and storage facilities.

In 2009 Digatron and TBS of England formed a Opens external link in new windowjoint venture  in Qingdao to manufacture
and service TBS equipment in China and other Asian countries. Digatron’s experience of manufacturing in China combined with TBS’ engineering excellence will provide a platform to supply its range of machines to this important area as well as local technical support and spare parts.
