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 is strengthening its focus on laboratory and process analysis and positioning itself to provide customers with better support for analysis tasks in the future.
With the acquisition of SpectraSensors and Kaiser Optical Systems in 2012 and 2013, Endress+Hauser brought 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 global 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. 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,” said Dr Manfred Jagiella, who is responsible for the analytical business on the Endress+Hauser Executive Board.
Endress+Hauser Optical Analysis is headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, US, where Raman spectroscopic instruments are also developed and manufactured. TDLAS instrumentation continues to be produced in Rancho Cucamonga, California, US. The new company, with around 200 employees, will remain a wholly owned subsidiary of the Endress+Hauser Group.
