Endress+Hauser Conducta Takes Over STIP, Liquid Analysis Company
Endress+Hauser Conducta GmbH+Co.KG (Gerlingen) takes over STIP GmbH (Groß-Umstadt) as of February 22 2005. This completes the product range of the company specialised in liquid analysis for the environmental and process industry in an ideal fashion. STIP products are predominantly used in water and waste water treatment. The takeover fully corresponds to the Endress+Hauser strategy of providing customers with a comprehensive program from one source and adapting fast to the needs of the market.

STIP develops, produces and maintains analysers for the environmental industry. These instruments measure the quality of water and waste water and help, for example, to operate municipal and industrial sewage treatment plants in an economically efficient and environment-compatible manner. The product range includes online process analysers for TOC-UV and high temperature, COD, BOD and toxicity as well as a multiparameter probe for turbidity, SAC, COD, sludge volume and sludge index.

STIP previously belonged to the American Teledyne ISCO group. The company operates predominantly in Germany, Great Britain, USA, China, Spain and Eastern Europe. It was agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The company will be carried on as a profit centre by Endress+Hauser Conducta for the time being. The Groß-Umstadt site as well as about 50 jobs will continue. In the medium term, STIP products are supposed to be integrated in view of a uniform operating philosophy and a common Endress+Hauser product design.

Endress+Hauser Conducta, part of the world-wide operating Endress+Hauser group, employed a staff of more than 400 around the globe at the end of 2004. The head office is in Gerlingen near Stuttgart; important production sites are in Waldheim (Sachsen) and Anaheim (California, USA). Led by General Manager, Dr. Wolfgang Babel, the company has significantly strengthened its market position through numerous future-oriented product innovations as well as several targeted acquisitions in recent years.
