In 1953, Cherne Industries created an innovative inflatable device for stack testing. Cherne’s pneumatic product offering expanded to include testing, maintenance and repair equipment for residential, commercial, industrial and municipal systems.
Acquired by Oatey Co. in 1990, Cherne Industries maintained its focus on system testing, maintenance and repair with an unrelenting commitment to quality.
Available in Oatey Co.’s distribution centers throughout North America and through partner distributors on every continent, Cherne products are relied on by residential and commercial contractors and industrial and municipal engineers worldwide. Product lines are available in both domestic and international specifications.
While Cherne has grown, its focus remains constant – providing customers the most reliable and innovative testing, maintenance and repair equipment in the plumbing, waterworks and underground industries – good enough to bear the Cherne name.
