In 1904, Emil Haefely founded Haefely Test AG. Based on a patented design for manufacturing resin-impregnated paper insulators, the company grew fast and expanded into high voltage testing in 1922. Over the years, Mr. Haefely became a specialist in the fabrication of electrical apparatus, bushings, and capacitors in insulation technology and high-voltage testing equipment.
In 1962, Stanley Peschel split from his father’s company and started Hipotronics, Inc. (derived from the words High Potential Electronics) with a vision to build products for the wire and cable industry. From the humble beginnings of the DC wire sparker and patented Hipotrode to the movable core reactor for large resonant systems, almost every underground cable worldwide has been tested by Hipotronics products. Peschel was awarded over 20 U.S. and international patents throughout his career.
The two companies, as shown in this diagram, were in fierce competition for decades – to the point where it almost bankrupted both of them. Little did they know that one day they’d be joining forces.
