Endress+Hauser Expands U.S. Production

cd1309 endress hauserEndress+Hauser is ready to serve its customers in North and South America with more U.S.-sourced products. The Swiss provider of measurement engineering and process automation invested more than $40 million in expanding its plants for flow, level and pressure measurement manufacturing.

An extension to the new building occupied only five years ago created nearly 85,000 ft² of additional space. "This gives us the chance to increase capacity and to produce additional lines of instruments locally," said Hans-Peter Blaser, managing director of the flow engineering plant in Greenwood. The systems for calibrating flowmeters, unique on the continent, have grown to include the latest technology for gas calibration.

The plant for level and pressure engineering moves into a new building with more than 105,000 ft² of ground area directly next door. The additional production areas will increase the scope of production and allow more products to be delivered directly from the Greenwood plant. The vacated facilities space will become a new visitor and training center for the U.S. sales organization.

Over the past years, Endress+Hauser reports that it has strongly grown its market share in the U.S. Todd Lucey, managing director of the US sales center, believes that one of the keys to this success is owed to this expanded local manufacturing capability. "More than 80% of the measurement instruments we deliver in the USA today are made in the USA. And we will continue to grow this share into the future," he said.

Endress+Hauser has had its own sales center in the U.S. since 1970; for over two decades, the company has manufactured there for the US market, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Chile and Argentina.
