Endress + Hauser announces investment in new French facility

September 29, 2017 - Endress+Hauser has invested 4.9 million euros in a new building in Lyon. As well as 25 sales and service employees from Endress+Hauser, nine employees from the European headquarters of Kaiser Optical Systems will move into the new facility.

The new energy-efficient office building is located near Lyon–Bron airport, in one of the fastest-growing business regions in France. The building houses 1,500 square meters of office space, warehouse facilities, a training center and a presentation room for customer training. With a total of around 7,000 square meters of space, the campus offers sufficient room to grow the location further.

The primary beneficiaries of the collaboration between Endress+Hauser and Kaiser Optical Systems are customers in the life sciences, chemical, water & wastewater, food & beverage and oil & gas industries. American-based Kaiser Optical Systems was acquired by Endress+Hauser in 2013. The company's Raman spectroscopy analyzers are designed for examining the composition and properties of liquid, gas and solid materials.

Endress+Hauser France has more than 250 employees at its headquarters in Huningue and at offices in Paris, Bordeaux and Lyon. As well as the French market, the Sales Center also oversees the Group's business in French-speaking Africa. Kaiser Optical Systems has 76 employees at its headquarters in Ann Arbor/Michigan, where the production facilities are co-located. The nine employees assigned to the Lyon office are coordinating the European sales activities.
