Endress+Hauser invests in Raman technology

Company breaks ground on new analyzer plant in the United States

Endress+Hauser is expanding its manufacturing facility for Raman analyzers. Wholly-owned subsidiary Kaiser Optical Systems is investing 8.6 million US dollars to develop the Ann Arbor, Michigan (US) location, which will more than double in size.

“The new facility will be the core of our future Raman-spectroscopic analyzer manufacturing,” said Tim Harrison, Managing Director of Kaiser Optical Systems. The instruments, which will be deployed in both process control and laboratory environments, are designed for analyzing the composition and properties of solid, liquid and gaseous substances.

The new two-story facility, which is slated to open in mid-2017, will increase floor space from 3,500 to 8,100 square meters (38,000 to 87,000 square feet). “Our state-of-the-art manufacturing will allow us to produce higher volumes, while maintaining the high quality standards our customers demand,” emphasized Tim Harrison. The existing buildings will be renovated after completion of the new plant. Kaiser Optical Systems plans to create up to 50 jobs in Ann Arbor over the next few years.

Strategic investments in the analytical business

Kaiser Optical Systems Inc. employs some 100 people around the world and has been part of the Endress+Hauser Group since 2013. The company is a leader in the field of Raman spectrographic instrumentation and applied holographic technology. The acquisition of Kaiser Optical Systems underscores Endress+Hauser’s strategic goal of employing advanced analytical technologies in process control applications and supporting the customer from laboratory to process.
