Our History

Bauer began as an electrical contracting firm in the early 1900s. In the 1930s postwar aviation industry, Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Company in Hartford, Connecticut emerged as the leading innovator in aircraft engines. To support engine development testing, Pratt & Whitney requested Bauer to apply our refrigeration and heating knowledge to provide temperature simulation systems for testing engine components. As other engine related testing requirements arose, Bauer transitioned completely from the electrical business to the aircraft component test equipment business. Over the years, Bauer’s expertise has expanded beyond aircraft engine systems to most other aircraft systems, with over 6,000 projects completed.

We are proud of our very successful 100+ year history, which is firmly based on our strong desire to genuinely understand the needs of our customers, to respond to these needs with timely, cost-effective engineering solutions, and to provide superior service at all times. Bauer’s commitment to delivering the highest level of customer service and support is the key to building and maintaining a base of customers who appreciate the advantages we deliver.
