About Forney LP

Founded by Joe Forney in 1916, Forney proudly celebrates our 101st anniversary!

Joe's son, Russ invented the purpose specific, concrete compression machine in the 1950s. His smaller, easy-to-use compression technology caught on with testing labs that couldn't afford huge testing machines, the only option at the time, and quickly became the worldwide industry standard.

It was Russ's spirit of entrepreneurship, generous soul and unique product offering that allowed many of his customers to open their own labs. And FORNEY grew and grew...

Today, we continue to innovate and offer thousands of scientific testing, measuring and processing instruments for the concrete, soils and asphalt industries worldwide. You'll find FORNEY in small test labs, universities, civil engineering firms, pre-casters, block producers, material producers, construction companies, energy companies, and government agencies.

FORNEY corporate headquarters is located near Zelienople PA, just 25 miles north of Pittsburgh, with manufacturing facilities and stocking warehouses in eastern and western United States.
