Endress+Hauser bundles analysis expertise
Effective 1 January 2022, the Endress+Hauser subsidiaries SpectraSensors, Inc. and Kaiser Optical Systems, Inc. have joined forces to form a new company: Endress+Hauser Optical Analysis, Inc. By consolidating its expertise in the field of laser-based measurement technology, the Group says it is strengthening its focus on laboratory and process analysis and positioning itself to provide its customers with better support for analysis tasks in the future.
Endress+Hauser has long placed a strategic focus on process and laboratory analysis. The company supports its customers from product and process development to production, bringing advanced analysis and quality measurements to process engineering applications. Success in its core markets confirms this approach, with the Group generating nearly one-quarter of its sales through analysis technology.
Both SpectraSensors and Kaiser Optical Systems have a long history of innovation and offer market-leading product lines for optical analysis.
With the acquisition of these two US-based companies in 2012 and 2013, Endress+Hauser brought their innovative technologies on board. The Group strengthened its position in gas analysis with tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) technology from SpectraSensors. Kaiser Optical Systems, a leader in Raman spectroscopy, brings expertise in solid, liquid and gas analysis across a wide range of applications, including vaccine production.
“We want to further develop and expand our portfolio for laboratory and process analysis,” said Dr Manfred Jagiella, who is responsible for the analytical business on the Endress+Hauser Executive Board. “Together with Endress+Hauser Liquid Analysis and the Analytik Jena subsidiary, Endress+Hauser Optical Analysis forms an important element of our Group’s analysis strategy.”
“Our customers expect easy-to-use, robust measurement instruments that fit their applications,” said Managing Director John Schnake, who leads the new unit. “With laser-based measurement technologies, Endress+Hauser offers an integrated product portfolio for analysis that supports industrial customers from product and process development through to quality control and production.”
Endress+Hauser Optical Analysis is headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where Raman spectroscopic instruments are also developed and manufactured. TDLAS instrumentation continues to be produced in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The new company, with around 200 employees, will remain a wholly owned subsidiary of the Endress+Hauser Group.
