Endress+Hauser is expanding its manufacturing facility for Raman analyzers. Wholly-owned subsidiary Kaiser Optical Systems is investing 8.6 million U.S. dollars to develop the Ann Arbor, Michigan, location.
“The new facility will be the core of our future Raman-spectroscopic analyzer manufacturing,” said Tim Harrison, managing director of Kaiser Optical Systems.
According to Endress+Hauser, 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 is slated to open in mid-2017 and will increase floor space from 3,500 to 8,100 square meters.
“Our state-of-the-art manufacturing will allow us to produce higher volumes, while maintaining the high quality standards our customers demand,” said Harrison.
