The Neal Systems Story

Founded in 1986 by David Neal, NSI began as a company of one individual built on twenty-four years’ experience in the instrumentation industry. Serving exclusively at first as a manufacturer’s representative, NSI expanded its distribution throughout the United States and into Canada and South America. Earning a reputation for quick product delivery and outstanding service, NSI established a warehousing capability for its commonly used products, which enabled NSI to provide rapid product solutions both to routine and emergency customer requirements 24/7. Over the years, NSI evolved from being a product provider to become a solutions provider as well through its product integration capability. More recently, NSI formed its service group, which provides field services – such as calibration and both routine and emergency maintenance and repair – for products and systems installed by both NSI and others. NSI’s team of 34 dedicated employees today provides a full range of products, product integration, and field services spanning instrumentation, control and data acquisition systems, wireless networks, industrial Ethernet networking technology, and security systems to meet customer application needs across a broad range of industries in the mid-Atlantic and northeast. Neal Systems has regularly placed among its vendors’ top five for sales representation.
