Author Topic:   FARIA Becomes FARIA-BEEDE

Thomas G. Faria Corporation was established in 1956 and has been manufacturing tachometers and other gauges as an original equipment manufacturer for automotive, military, and marine engines in their Uncasville, Connecticut facility for decades. In late 2014 they acquired Beede Instruments of New Hampshire, who have been in the instrumentation business since 1917. In October 2014 it was announced the combined operation would be known as FARIA-BEEDE INSTRUMENTS, INC., and manufacturing would be consolidated at the Connecticut plant.

Faria is the OEM of the Evinrude ICON instrumentation line. FARIA calls their own branding of these gauges the MG3000 series. See

The MG3000 series is available for both NMEA-2000 network and SmartCraft network use, which makes me wonder if they might also be an OEM supplier to Mercury Marine. Faria has also been the OEM maker of countless analog gauges for use with outboard engines. They have an extensive on-line listing of support documents. See

It makes me happy to see a U.S. manufacturer of leading-edge technology maintain their dominance in a global market. Especially so for a company in my home state of Connecticut, historically known as a center of invention and innovation.

It's a miracle that they're keeping it in Connecticut rather than New Hampshire given the high cost and high tax rates of Connectircut. If I owned a business here and had the opportunity, I'd run from this state.

In the 1970's I lived in Connecticut, in Fairfield county, and I used to look longingly at New Hampshire as a great place to move and work. I almost got a job up there, but it didn't quite pan out.

Faria-Beede are going to keep their Engineering, Marketing, Customer Support, and Environmental Lab in New Hampshire.
