History of Howard

In the early 50s, while the United States was recovering from World War II, John Howard was just another oil field worker. However, not content to just make ends meet, he began to innovate. By the early 60s, he had become a pioneer in the chart integration and measurement industry, riding the cutting edge of innovation and excellence. For the next twenty years John and his wife Marcia were called on as measurement experts, publishing papers and teaching schools in the Gulf Coast, Permian Basin, and Oklahoma’s International School of Hydrocarbon Measurement (ISHM). In 1981, the two of them left the general management of Southern Flow to start their own measurement company. Thirty years later, Howard Measurement has become a one stop shop for the entire breadth of needs of the measurement industry. Now owned and operated by John and Marcia Howard’s children, Allen and Pam Hobgood, the company continues to offer the highest quality service to be found in natural gas measurement.
