It started in 1946 with an enterprising idea. There were leaks in the roofs and plaster walls of buildings in New York City. Building superintendents needed a way to identify them for repair. Enter Bill Delmhorst and his proprietary moisture meter. He sold it to the city, and Delmhorst Instrument Co. was born.
Since then, Delmhorst has built a reputation for designing, manufacturing and marketing the highest quality moisture meters available on the market for a variety of industries. Every Delmhorst product is assembled in the USA, and is supported by our industry-leading warranty. Our commitment to product excellence and superior service began as a mission. Now, it is our hallmark.
Our meters provide consistent, accurate readings about the moisture level of your product. Whether you choose pin-type, or pin-free, the meters provide valuable information you need to make critical decisions.
Beyond simply providing best-in-class tools for detecting moisture, Delmhorst is committed to supporting all of our customers—both end users and distributors. For distributors, Delmhorst offers numerous exclusive promotional and educational materials to help our distributors provide top-notch service to their own customers. For customers, we offer an industry-leading manufacturer’s warranty and a U.S.-based customer support team to help troubleshoot moisture meter issues and provide tips for getting more out of your Delmhorst products.
When disaster strikes, the financial and emotional damage can be devastating. That’s why moisture meters are so critical in restoration work. Delmhorst moisture meters have saved contractors and their homeowner clients thousands of dollars and countless hours in finding the extent and precise location of water damage.
Keeping hay at proper moisture levels is key to maintaining its nutritional value, preserving its leaves, and reducing the chances of mold development and spontaneous combustion. Delmhorst moisture meters keep track of those critical levels—and help hay growers produce the highest quality hay.
A Delmhorst moisture meter is an ‘inexpensive insurance policy’ for flooring installations. It keeps contractors fully informed about the moisture level, minimizing the chances of defects, such as cracking, cupping and warping—avoiding costly callbacks.
Delmhorst moisture meters can also be used in the following industries: building inspection, leather, paper, moisture transmitter, temperature/RH, wood and more. Our products are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our customers. Let us know how we can help you.
We are grateful to all of you—our longtime colleagues, customers and friends—who called, sent cards or messages, flowers and donations, or were able to join us in celebrating Paul’s life last week. His children, Sophia and Max, led us in a loving tribute.
Wherever he went, often on behalf of Delmhorst, Paul made friends, connected with people, and did his best to meet their needs. His lifelong commitment to our family and our business, and to the people whose trust he gained, is evident in the outpouring of support that has provided so much comfort to our employees and to the entire Laurenzi family.

We are deeply saddened to share that our dear brother, business partner and colleague, Paul Laurenzi, has passed away. Paul was an integral part of the management team at Delmhorst. He joined our family’s business in 1990, and took on various roles, culminating in his leadership of the sales and marketing effort as Vice President. He believed in our brand, and was tireless in his efforts to connect with customers and make Delmhorst what it is today. We will miss him dearly.
