Honeywell to acquire Zellweger Analytics
Based in Uster, Switzerland, Zellweger Analytics is a leading manufacturer of toxic and flammable gas detection systems. The company has nearly 40 years of experience in the design and manufacture of innovative gas detection products for use in semiconductor, industrial and oil and gas industries. Zellweger Analytics' products help ensure the safety of employees, protect high-value assets and prevent costly plant shutdowns. Zellweger Analytics maintains offices throughout Europe, Asia-Pacific and in the United States.
"The gas detection industry is a growing, billion dollar industry and Zellweger Analytics is a well-established and respected company in this market," said Mark Levy, president of Honeywell Life Safety. "By acquiring Zellweger Analytics, Honeywell has the opportunity to enter the worldwide gas detection marketplace with a leading brand portfolio and a large international customer base."
Zellweger Analytics' gas detection technology offers Honeywell a strong complement to its existing fire systems and sensors portfolio and will greatly enhance its sensing and detecting capabilities.
After the acquisition, Zellweger Analytics, which has annual sales of approximately USD $170 million, will become part of the Life Safety business unit within Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions.
"This is a great opportunity for Zellweger Analytics, its distributors and our end users," said Konrad Peter, CEO of Zellweger Luwa. "We are very happy to have found this first-class industrial solution, which will ensure the further sustainable development of our outstanding gas detection business," said Peter.
Levy concluded, "There is a rising demand for gas detection solutions in industries where potentially hazardous chemicals and gases exist. As part of Honeywell, Zellweger Analytics will have access to complementary technologies and sales channels, enabling the business to further develop additional, innovative gas detection technologies, which will greatly benefit customers."
