New HQ Gauge Pics, new level gauge parts diagrams.

In an effort to improve Krueger Sentry Gauge’s literature and distributor support, we have got new pictures and gauge diagrams available.  These pictures are available to anyone that needs them.

I have posted some of the pictures on the Krueger Sentry Gauge Facebook page.

I will be updating the website with the new pics and the new pdf’s soon.  We have completed the refab on pics and pdfs of about half of our product line.  Soon we will do the rest of our gauges.

1943 Vintage Krueger Sentry At A Glance Gauge

I was on Ebay when I found this gem.  A vintage 1943 At A Glance Krueger Sentry Gauge.  It has all the original packaging and instructions.  Of course I had to buy it.  And obviously, there wasn’t a lot of competition on the purchase.  Go figure, I was the only one who wanted a 66 year old liquid level gauge.

New Product –

Letters to Brett Favre

A new book is out called “Letters to Brett Favre”.  It is a compilation of letters and such written to and about Brett Favre by the fans.  The cool thing, my blog entry is supposedly making an appearance in the book.  I have not gotten my copy yet, but I play on doing so today.

New Product- Remote Liquid Level Gauge

Our new product is just on the horizon.  The LED At A Glance.  It is a remote display accessory that fits right on our current line of liquid level gauges.  Now you can turn any Krueger tank level gauge into a remote reading gauge.  This was originally designed with the home heating oil market in mind.  Home owners can mount this to their gauge in the basement, and put the remote display in a more convenient location.  The parallel applications for the product seem endless, however.  If you have a tank that is 10 feet in the air and you want to be able to read the gauge at ground level.  This is perfect.  Check out the picture, and if you have any questions just visit our website and get in contact with us.

PEI Young Executives


Just a small company announcement.  I have been named to the committee /board of the PEI Young Execs.  This means I get to have some say in where our group goes for meetings, educational topics, and speakers.

Not a real big deal, but I am excited.  I have been a member of the group for 5 or 6 years now.  If you are a member of the PEI organization and fall within the ages of 18 and 40 something, I highly recommend the group.  It is an excellent way to meet people in the industry and pick up business practice ideas from your peers.

Brett Favre is a New York Jet

If you are reading this post, then you probably read my previous post about Brett Favre retiring. If you cant tell I am a huge Brett Favre fan and an even HUGER Packer fan.

Believe it or not, you can still be both. I understand that Brett is upset with Packer management. I understand that Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy made the best decision that they could under the circumstances. I wish Brett was still a Packer. He is not, and I am OK with that.

I think the Packers leaders are excellent at what they do, and I am still a Brett Favre Fan. I will be cheering for the Packers to make the Super Bowl, and I will also be a New York Jets fan at least until Brett decides to hang it up again. So what happens in the unlikely event that both teams make it to the Super Bowl? Sorry Brett, my heart still resides in Green Bay.

China -The Manufacturing Giant

A salesman called me the other day offering assistance in getting our manufacturing outsourced to China. “It’s the wave of the future, if you don’t get on the boat you will be left behind and your business will fail.” This was his quote. Everyone from other manufacturers, to magazine articles, and even motivational speakers at conventions have told me this. Get on the boat, or fail. The only way we can remain competitive is to not only get our components from China, but to get our entire product line manufactured in China.

Krueger Sentry Gauge has taken a hard stand on this topic. Our plant is in Green Bay Wisonsin and we manufacture our product right here at home. Any component that we can produce ourselves at competitive prices is done so right here in our facilities. All components for our products that we can’t produce ourselves we have produced by other United States Manufacturer’s. I see no reason to change this. We get quality parts at fair prices from our US manufacturers.

In other words, our liquid level gauges and all of the components on our gauges are Made in the USA and will continue to be made in the USA. We have been in business for over 65 years, we have sold over 3 million gauges, our business continues to grow, and our business has stayed strong and competive despite not getting on the so called “boat”.

I am not a golden aged 75 year old man with a grudge. I am not taking a stand and trying to do what I think is best for this country. I am a 33 year old future business leader doing what I believe is best for this company and its products.
