Endress+Hauser has announced that it has expanded its production facilities in the US.
The company has extended its Raman analyser manufacturing plant in Ann Arbor, Michigan, at a cost of US$9 million, while it has also built a new plant for temperature measurement production in Greenwood, Indiana, for US$8 million.
Raman analysers are designed for examining the composition and material characteristics of solids, liquids and gases. Kaiser Optical Systems, part of the Endress+Hauser Group since 2013, manufactures Raman spectroscopy devices, which are deployed in process and laboratory. Endress+Hauser is pursuing a strategy that involves the employment of advanced analytical engineering in process applications and supporting customers in lab and process.
Construction of the new plant took nearly one year and more than doubles the floor space to 8100 m2. Tim Harrison, Managing Director of Kaiser Optical Systems, said: “The expansion will allow us to produce our analysers in even higher volumes and with the quality that our customers around the world demand.”
The new plant for temperature measurement production will produce sensor elements, thermometers and thermowells, as well as transmitters, system components and recorders.
Patrick McGlothlen, Managing Director of the plant, said: “The new facility demonstrates Endress+Hauser’s commitment to the market and customers in North America. It shows that we are dedicated to manufacturing and providing services close to our customers.”
