Springfield was founded in 1956 by two New York City dentists who had a vision to become a prime designer and manufacturer of innovative, high quality, fashionable products and solutions that would enhance people’s lifestyle throughout the home. Their vision and success was realized quickly by building a reputation for being first to market with an abundance of innovative new products each year in weather instruments, cooking thermometers and timers. As the company grew, it expanded and invested in research, engineering, product development and technology so that it could continue to maintain its position as a market leader and provide the excellent service for which they were known.
In 2009, Taylor Precision Products acquired the Springfield brand. Since 1851, Taylor has been known for providing quality kitchen thermometers, kitchen scales, bath scales and outdoor weather products under the brand names of Taylor and Salter. Precision measurement has always been the focus of Taylor’s business. That focus and commitment to quality joined with the Springfield brand’s reputation for innovation and fashionable design will yield products and solutions that positively enhance customer’s lives.
