HISTORY

Over twenty years ago two engineers got together and asked themselves,  “There has got to be an easier way.”  Then they set out to find it.  And they did—creating TransEra, a software and hardware company that focuses on finding a better, easier, and more cost effective solutions for scientists and engineers.  Over the years they have come up with a multitude of products for the business, residential, and scientific communities.  Starting in the 70’s developing peripherals for work stations (you remember those days) up to today, with their PC based HTBasic, a simple yet powerful programing language for engineers and scientists. TansEra is committed to the engineering and scientific community—because like you we’re engineers.   Follow the timeline below for more details about TransEra and some of our ground breaking products.
