Endress+Hauser has expanded its centre of competence for advanced analysis in Lyon, France. The Group invested €2 million in a new production facility and office space to meet growing demand in the area of advanced process analyses.
From Lyon, around 20 employees support Endress+Hauser sales centres across Europe in the application and sales of advanced analysis technology, with a focus on the project business and after-sales services. Ten Endress+Hauser sales centres across Europe already have specialists on board to handle this complex field of activity.
The new 630 square metre production facility will be used for customer-specific manufacturing and the assembly of complete analysis systems. Rounding out the facility are offices, rooms for factory acceptance tests and space reserved for future use. The adjacent 1500 square metre office building, which opened in 2017, is also home to the Endress+Hauser France regional sales office. With a total of 7000 square metres, the property offers sufficient space to grow the location even further.
“The expansion of the Lyon location allows us to do an even better job of bringing our expertise in the field of process analysis to our customers,” emphasised Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group. “This is an important strategic goal for us and helps our customers acquire more information from their processes.”
Advanced analysis provides immediate information related to material properties and product quality. Endress+Hauser continuously develops its analysis portfolio to provide online monitoring of quality parameters, for example through spectroscopic techniques. This allows customers to reduce time-to-market and optimise their processes. Customers in industries such as life sciences, chemical, food and beverage and oil and gas can benefit the most from the advanced analysis portfolio.
The Lyon location combines the expertise of Endress+Hauser and its subsidiaries, Kaiser Optical Systems and SpectraSensors, under one roof. The Raman analysers from Kaiser Optical Systems are used to examine the composition and material properties of liquids, gases and solids and enable the real-time measurement of product characteristics. SpectraSensors is a leader in the field of TDLAS technology, which can be used to measure trace-level concentrations of gases.
