Hardy Instruments Partners with B+L to Reach European Market
Hardy Instruments and B+L Industrial Measurements announce a cooperation to deliver industrial weighing and tension control equipment to the European market. San Diego based Hardy Instruments will work with B+L, located in Heidelberg, Germany, to develop variations of existing Hardy process weighing and tension control instrumentation, and to create new designs for the European market. This new product line will be branded B+L HARDY and marketed exclusively by B+L Industrial Measurements. Existing Hardy Instruments customers will enjoy improved sales and service support throughout Europe, while B+L customers will gain a full line of industrial weighing instrumentation to choose from.

B+L, formerly known as the Weighing Electronics Branch within Bran & Luebbe, has over 35 years of experience in weighing, thousands of customers and a strong presence in the European market. B+L will focus the majority of its resources to marketing, supplying and handling presale and post-sale support for the new B+L HARDY instrumentation. The German company will also play an active role in the creation of new products and will work with European agencies to attain the proper certifications and approvals for use in various applications.

Hardy Instruments, a leader in industrial weighing and tension control instrumentation, is well known for bringing innovative solutions to the process industry including WAVERSAVER® technology, which ignores vibration for accurate readings, C2® Second Generation Calibration which allows calibration without the use of test weights, and IT® Integrated Technician which facilitates troubleshooting from the front panel of the instrument or over a network.

Dave Ness, president of Hardy Instruments, says, “We have long thought of B+L as Hardy's equivalent in the European market, and we are very honored and excited to be working with them. The value that both organizations bring to the table creates a selection of products and services that well exceeds that of each individual company.”

Leo Baartmans, managing director of B+L adds, “When we chose Hardy Instruments as our partner, we based our decision on Hardy’s strong dedication to the process weighing market. For us, this is a great opportunity to serve those markets in Europe, where we are traditionally strong. In addition, we see this as a chance for the development of products for global markets.”
