Who are we?
Kestrel Instruments are designed, built, sold and supported in the USA by Nielsen-Kellerman Company. NK has been specializing in rugged, waterproof environmental and sports performance instruments for over 40 years. NK’s brands include Kestrel Weather & Environmental Meters, Kestrel Ballistics Weather Meters, NK Performance Electronics for Rowing and Paddling, Blue Ocean Rugged Megaphone PA Systems, RainWise Weather Instruments, and Ambient Weather Smart Weather Stations.
NK focuses relentlessly on meeting the specialized measurement needs of demanding outdoor customers. Olympic athletes, firefighters, and military professionals are just some of the NK customers who rely on our products for accuracy and durability. Delivering anything less than the highest level of quality is not an option. Whatever the niche, we know our customers won’t forgive us for letting them down and will tell their friends what they think of us, good or bad.
Innovative US Manufacturer
NK began business in an upstate New York basement, and we demonstrate our commitment to US manufacturing by walking the walk every day. Now located in Boothwyn, PA, we design here in the US, we source the parts and components we can in the US, and we build here in the US with a great team constantly encouraged and supported in learning new skills. We continuously improve our product, processes, flow, inventory management and people to stay cost-competitive and ensure we can deliver what our customers need when they need it.
We strive to conduct our business in a sustainable manner and minimize harm to the environment by actively implementing company-wide plans to conserve energy, reduce waste, and recycle. We conduct life-cycle analysis of shipping impact to determine the most effective packaging for each product and minimize “shipping air.” We use recycled products in packaging where the benefits are clear. Our building was constructed with energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems. We support working from home, car-pooling and cycling to work.
Giving Back to the Community
After 30 years, we’ve got a lot of friends in some close-knit communities. We appreciate our customers and friends and focus our charitable activities on giving back to the communities that support us and our employees. We seek out charitable organizations that we believe are helping make the world a better place in ways relevant to our customers. We financially support the Korey Stringer Institute in their mission to prevent sudden death in sport, including deaths from heat stress in football.
Giving Back to the Community
We support AmericanSnipers.org in their mission to ensure our snipers and special operators are equipped with the tools they need to conduct their fight. Closer to home, we give blood, walk, collect food, buy gifts, and do all the things that people do to try to make their community better for those having a rough time.
