With a vision of a company in which employees had a voice and were encouraged to use it, McElhattan ultimately proposed a resolution whereby he would return to the U.S. and, along with his son Kent, purchase the Industrial Safety Division of National Mine Service. On January 25, 1985, the purchased division became known as Industrial Scientific. Since then, Industrial Scientific has grown to become the world’s leading provider of gas detection products and services. The company helps to keep hundreds of thousands of workers safe in hazardous environments around the world – all thanks to a little microscope.
