Our History

As a young man, Max Wastl immigrated to the United States and studied Electrical Engineering at the prestigious Purdue University. Using his education and experience as a guide, he established Lafayette Instrument Company in 1947 with a single employee and a small shed. Over time, in addition to physiological recording instrumentation and psychology testing, Lafayette began to explore the sports and polygraph markets.

With ongoing expansion came international attention, and as a result, Campden Instruments was acquired in 1998 to be an extension and complement to Lafayette's market leading product lines. In 2016, having seen a growing need for scientifically-driven credibility assessment training, PEAK Credibility Assessment Training Center was born.
