Berkeley Springs Instruments, LLC (BSI) develops a range of products and services that address mechanical integrity assessment and monitoring needs for the petroleum, chemical and utility industries. The foundation of BSI’s business is based on the following product and service lines: wireless, intelligent monitoring sensors, unique robotic scanning systems, and tank and pipeline inspection services. BSI’s robotic technology has been in use globally for more than 10 years.

In 2007, Dr. Eugene Silverman, founder and president of BSI, moved his business from the family garage in Berkeley Springs to a manufacturing facility in Paw Paw, W. Va.

Taking advantage of the many skilled high-tech retirees who had moved to the area from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Maryland, BSI created 20 new jobs. In 2008, the company returned to Berkeley Springs and now employs experienced electrical engineers, mechanical technicians, software engineers, field service providers and office support staff.

The business community has identified BSI’s markets as having tremendous growth opportunities for the next several decades. This is especially the case relative to the use of wireless technology for infrastructure monitoring and tank and pipeline integrity management services. As BSI grows so will the company’s impact on West Virginia’s economic growth. This result will provide jobs and create a model for high-tech and Internet businesses to make use of the many incentives provided by the Governor’s Guaranteed Work Force Program, which includes an OSHA safety training course on hazardous operations.
“We recognized a real opportunity to contribute to the community and continue the trend toward attracting high-technology business to West Virginia.”
