Endress+Hauser To Build New Manufacturing Facility In Greenwood, Indiana

April, 2006; The Endress+Hauser Group will expand its locations in Greenwood, Indiana. The Endress+Hauser Flowtec Division is extending its manufacturing facilities and offices. The company decided to invest over US$17 million in Greenwood, Indiana within the next two years. With this, a substantial amount of new jobs will be created. Groundbreaking for the new facility will take place in the first half of April 2006.

The Endress+Hauser Flowtec company based in Reinach, Switzerland is responsible for flow measurement technology within the Endress+Hauser Group. The new expansion of its U.S. division will consist of 74,000 square feet for manufacturing, including a new state of the art calibration laboratory, and 16,000 square feet offices and training facilities.

Flow measurement technology made in USA
The new facility will be dedicated to the manufacturing and calibration of electromagnetic flow meters; Endress+Hauser will expand its domestic offering to meters with line sizes up to 48 inches. The new high precision and accredited calibration laboratory will be the only one of its kind in the United States. At the same time Endress+Hauser Flowtec will also remodel its present facilities to accommodate the heavy growth in sales of its Coriolis, vortex and ultrasonic product lines. With this, Endress+Hauser is underlining its complete commitment to the North American market and its loyal customers.

We want to meet their needs as fast and as flexible as possible”, stated Klaus Endress, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group. “For short, we want to be a capable and reliable partner for our customers all over the world.
