Endress+Hauser strengthens expertise for advanced analysis
Endress+Hauser has expanded its centre of competence for advanced analysis in Lyon, France. The Group has invested €2 million in a new production facility and office space to meet the growing demand in the area of advanced process analyses.
From Lyon, around 20 employees support Endress+Hauser sales centres across Europe in the application and sales of advanced analysis technology, with a focus on the project business and after-sales services.
The new 630 m2 production facility will be used for customer-specific manufacturing and the assembly of complete analysis systems. Rounding out the facility are offices, rooms for factory acceptance tests and space reserved for future use. The adjacent 1500 m2 office building, which opened in 2017, is also home to the Endress+Hauser France regional sales office.
“The expansion of the Lyon location allows us to do an even better job of bringing our expertise in the field of process analysis to our customers,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, during the dedication ceremony on 17 July. “This is an important strategic goal for us and helps our customers acquire more information from their processes.”
Advanced analysis provides immediate information related to material properties and product quality. Endress+Hauser continuously develops its analysis range to provide online monitoring of quality parameters, eg, through spectroscopic techniques. This allows its customers to reduce time to market and optimise their processes. Users in industries such as life sciences, chemical, food and beverage, and oil and gas can benefit the most from Endress+Hauser’s advanced analysis range.
The Lyon location combines the expertise of Endress+Hauser and its subsidiaries Kaiser Optical Systems and SpectraSensors under one roof. The Raman analysers from Kaiser Optical Systems are used to examine the composition and material properties of liquids, gases and solids and enable the real-time measurement of product characteristics. SpectraSensors produces TDLAS technology, which can be used to reliably measure trace-level concentrations of gases.
