Measurement engineering and process automation specialist Endress+Hauser has further expanded its production facilities in the United States. The Raman analyser manufacturing plant in Ann Arbor, Michigan was extended at a cost of 9 million US dollars. In Greenwood, Indiana, the company built a new 8 million dollar plant for temperature measurement production.

May 31, 2017 - Kaiser Optical Systems, part of the Endress+Hauser Group since 2013, manufactures Raman spectroscopy devices in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The analysers, which are designed for examining the composition and material characteristics of solids, liquids and gases, 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 9 million dollar plant took nearly one year and more than doubles the floor space to 8,100 square meters (87,000 square feet). With roughly 100 employees worldwide, Kaiser Optical Systems is thus gearing up for additional growth. “The expansion will allow us to produce our analysers in even higher volumes and with the quality that our customers around the world demand,” emphasizes Tim Harrison, Managing Director of Kaiser Optical Systems.

Customer-specific production

Endress+Hauser has manufactured temperature measurement technology and system products since 2008, in Greenwood, Indiana, also the US sales center headquarters. The company has now invested more than 8 million US dollars in a 3,900 square meter (42,000 square feet) state-of-the-art production facility. The new plant will produce sensor elements, thermometers and thermowells as well as transmitters, system components and recorders.

“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,” emphasises Patrick McGlothlen, Managing Director of the plant. While producing for its home market in the US, the Greenwood facility also supplies customers in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Chile quickly and flexibly with customised products.
