HOLLAND, MI - Hemco Gage announces the acquisition of selected assets of the Ekonogage product line, previously a division of Perfekt Punch. Hemco, with an almost 65 year history a functional gage manufacturer, has added the Ekonogage by Hemco product of hardened tool steel pin gages and sets to its offerings.

The company has built a temperature and humidity controlled manufacturing space within its Holland, MI, plant to house the equipment and inventory for Ekonogage by Hemco. The Hemco Gage product line will be filled out with Ekonogage by Hemco.

H. E. Morse Co. was founded in 1946 and shortly thereafter a unique plating process was developed. During the Korean War, H.E. Morse Co. began manufacturing thread plug gages for the U.S. government. The unique plating process was applied to chrome plating of the gages, giving them up to 400% longer life than standard tool steel gages. The organization, now commonly known as Hemco or Hemco Gage, manufactures a full line of fixed limit gages and variable gages, both thread and cylindrical or plain. Hemco also manufactures gages to American Petroleum Institute (API) specifications and is one of only two manufacturers in the United States licensed to manufacture API Master Gages.
