Apogee is proud to announce the expansion of our headquarters. Apogee has come a long way since 1996, when Dr. Bruce Bugbee began creating and manufacturing his own instruments out of his garage. We are excited to see our new two-story, 10,000 ft. expansion take shape, which is expected to be complete in early 2016. The new section will include a greatly expanded production area, a new R&D lab, a state-of-the art training area, a marketing communications studio, and more.


An article by Apogee's Mark Blonquist and Dr. Bruce Bugbee was published in the August 2014 issue of Meteorological Technology International. The article, "Active or Passive: The challenge of accurately measuring air temperature," describes the pros and cons of different air temperature measurement methods and the important gap filled in the market by Apogee's new TS-100 low-power aspirated radiation shield. Also included are data from Apogee's extensive field testing, and information on how the TS-100 is being used for different applications like the GAMUT network and in measuring record-setting cold temperatures at Peter Sinks, Utah.

We are proud to announce the launch of Apogee's new company logo as part of the ongoing evolution of our brand. Apogee has flourished since 1996 and we felt it was time for another change to reflect who we are today and symbolize our dynamic future. This wasn't a decision made lightly. We are proud of our rich history. That's why our new logo has retained some of the core elements while we added a modern touch. Here is an image of the changes we've made over the years.

In the upcoming months we will update all of our marketing collaterals, literature, manuals, product images, stationary, web site etc. with the new logo. This is a huge process that will take some time. If you are an Apogee distributor, we recommend using any existing Apogee branded materials until your stock runs out and then making the change. If you are a customer, please know that even though our logo has changed, we have not changed. We still have the same commitment to quality and service that has made us a leader in the industry. Be sure to check back on our site often as we have many other improvements in the works.
