MOCON, Inc., is an international manufacturing company headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA with operations in Colorado, Germany, Denmark and China.

Our Beginnings and Growth

While working as a research physicist for General Mills in Minneapolis, Les Demorest, our founder, saw a need for the type of moisture measurement instrumentation that became our first product. In 1966, he founded Modern Controls, Inc., and in 1968 it became a public company trading locally in Minnesota. In 1979 the company became a nationally traded public company on the NASDAQ exchange with the symbol "MOCON".

A word often heard at MOCON is "growth". The company has experienced excellent growth over the years and is committed to continuing this growth in the future. There is a strong sense of accountability to our shareholders to deliver consistent earnings through being a step ahead in anticipating, responding to, and delivering market needs.

Additionally, MOCON is a consulting company. We perform technical consultation involving material assessment for a wide variety of companies world-wide. Today we are a high-tech company serving our customers and our shareholders with the best instrumentation, services, and financial performance we can generate. We are proud of our employees and their dedication to our continued success.
