With the acquisition of the US company SpectraSensors, Endress+Hauser is tapping into the market for gas analysis. This further reinforces the position of the Swiss Group in the area of analytical measurements and in the oil and gas industry. SpectraSensors with headquarters in Houston, Texas, and production facilities in Rancho Cucamonga, California, develops, manufactures and distributes laser-based gas analytical instrumentation. The devices are used in natural gas pipelines and plants, petrochemical refineries and chemical plants as well as for atmospheric monitoring. The company employs about 90 people and generates annual sales of approximately $30-million. SpectraSensors remains an independent company. Under the mantle of the Endress+Hauser Group we are able to position ourselves better in the global market. The company shows a strong market presence in the United States. Endress+Hauser will expand sales and service of the gas analysers to additional countries. SpectraSensor’s product portfolio is also set to grow.
