Endress+Hauser expands US production in Michigan and Indiana
Group extends Raman analyzer production and builds new plant for temperature measurement production
Measurement engineering and process automation specialist, Endress+Hauser, has further expanded its production facilities in the United States. The Raman analyzer manufacturing plant in Ann Arbor, Michigan was extended at a cost of 9 million dollars. In Greenwood, Indiana, the company built a new 8 million dollar plant for temperature measurement production.
Raman analyzer manufacturing facility
Kaiser Optical Systems, part of the Endress+Hauser Group since 2013, manufactures Raman spectroscopy devices in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The analyzers, 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.
Preparing for additional growth
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 analyzers in even higher volumes and with the quality that our customers around the world demand,” emphasizes Managing Director Tim Harrison.
Temperature manufacturing facility
Endress+Hauser has manufactured temperature measurement technology and system products since 2008, in Greenwood, IN, also the US sales center headquarters. The company has now invested more than 8 million dollars in a 42,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art production facility. The new plant will produce sensor elements, thermometers and thermowells as well as transmitters, system components and recorders.
Close to our customers
“The new facility demonstrates our commitment to the market and customers in North America. It shows Endress+Hauser is dedicated to manufacturing and providing services closer to our customers,” emphasizes Patrick McGlothlen, Managing Director of the facility.
