TFI celebrates 20th birthday, 6 April 2015

Turbulent Flow Instrumentation Pty Ltd was official formed on 6 April 1995. So today, 6 April 2015, is the company's 20th birthday! But in many ways the company is even older - the company began operations in the 1980's, although it was only a part-time occupation for the company founders. With continuing strong growth we look forward to the next 20 years!

TFI Attends ICWE12, Cairns, Australia, 10 July 2007

TFI attended the 12th International Conference on Wind Engineering (July 1-6, 2007), exhibiting some of TFI's products to the wind engineering community. The week was a great success, with previous acquaintances renewed, meeting people that we had previously only communicated with via email and phone, and new people were introduced to TFI for the first time. There was much interest in the capabilities of our products, so much so that we were all exhausted by the weeks end!
