Brooks Instrument Opens New Production Line for Its Pressure Gauge Product Family

Brooks Instrument has opened a new production line for its recently acquired pressure gauge product family at its global headquarters in Hatfield, Pa. Brooks acquired the pressure gauge products line as part of its acquisition of certain assets of Celerity's Instrumentation division in June 2009.

The pressure gauge product family includes pressure gauges, pressure switches and pressure transmitters.

"This is a great product line for Brooks Instrument, as it compliments our flow business very well. The fact that we offer pressure switches and transmitters in addition to the pressure gauges provides our customers with some great options," said Steve Kannengieszer, director of marketing, mass flow products at Brooks Instrument. "Relocating the production line to our global headquarters allows us to monitor customer orders more efficiently and ultimately improve customer satisfaction."

In addition, manufacturing of the pressure gauge products will be supported in Allen, Texas, as well as the new Hatfield location for a brief period to ensure there are no customer interruptions as the new production line ramps up.
