About us

Mission

Founded in 1986, Microplan is committed to helping HVAC appliances’ manufacturing companies run their businesses more efficiently and profitably. Our team is dedicated to design and manufacture the best products available – accurate, efficient, reliable, easy to learn and use - with superior support, and at an affordable price.

History

Established in Verona Italy in 1986, Microplan initially focused on manufacturing customized automatic test systems for wall boiler manufacturers. In their first few years of activity, the typical Microplan customer was a manufacturer attempting to automate their test lines. Based upon their unique approach and early successes, the boiler industry quickly took note of Microplan resulting in the growth of their business. This prompted the Italian company to invest substantially in Research and Development which resulted in the first introduction of technical improvements in industry history. Shortly thereafter, Microplan faced a new challenge of acquiring clients that had already completed test line automation. As customers became aware of the amount of research and high degree of specialization that went into designing a solution on their behalf, Microplan succeeded not only in retaining existing accounts, but in adding new clients resulting in increased market share. By engaging Microplan, customers actually improved their automated processes and in some cases, were able to develop and introduce more advanced technologies.

In order to enhance its product and service offering, Microplan went on to add:

  • precision systems for boiler development
  • quality control and stress testing services
  • safer and faster end of assembly line testing

Their achievements and position were recognized in 1996 when the Italian Institute of National Quality Certification (IMQ) purchased Microplan’s wall boiler homologation test system which strengthened their reputation as an industry leader. Building upon its previous successes, Microplan rushed ahead to expand its product range by entering into new areas: 

  • manufacturing test systems for R&D laboratories
  • water heater production lines
  • burners
  • hydraulic pumps
  • air conditioners
  • safety and zone valves
  • gas valve adjustments

Microplan also developed new technologies for leakage detection and introduced brand new instrumentation for air and vacuum combustion gas detection sensors and spectrometers for tracing gas.

Microplan's technical expertise and customized approach to servicing each and every customer‘s individual needs ensures optimized solutions for automated control of processes whenever and wherever fluids are being tested.
