Our History

Since 1969, Kinemetrics and its subsidiaries have been the global market leaders in designing technologies, products, and solutions for monitoring earthquakes and their effects on people and structures. Many of our products are the de facto standards, to which other products were and are compared.

Located in Pasadena, California, also known as Earthquake Country, and in close proximity to world's leading earthquake research institutions such as California Institute of Technology (CALTECH) and UCSD's Scripps Institute of Oceanography where we work together to prototype and test our equipment and solutions before they became available for sale in our marketplace, Kinemetrics is the preferred partner for those who seek actionable solutions for taking seismic research and seimic resilience further and faster.

We are committed to delivering innovative, standard setting technologies, products and solutions - on time, on-line, every time.
