Stable Micro Systems was started in 1989 by a check-weigher manufacturer, a draughtsman from a Formula 1 consultancy and an expert in electronics design. From humble beginnings in a stable, the founders progressed to Nissen huts and took on software, sales and assembly staff to get the business going. By 1995, they had established a strong distributor network across the globe and had outgrown the space they had. The company was moved to Godalming, Surrey (approx 50km outside of London) where they were then able to assemble, market, sell, develop and ship instruments to meet the growing demand in new markets and countries.
With the input from a team of software, electronics and mechanical engineers the first instrument model was redesigned and launched in 2002 furnished with all of the features that had been requested by customers, including being the first texture analyser to be able to collect other device data simultaneously and thereby vastly expanding a customer’s testing possibilities.
