Endress+Hauser announces expansion of Swiss sensor production facility

May 28, 2019 - Endress+Hauser, a sensor specialist, officially opened an expansion of its plant in Ebnat- Kappel in eastern Switzerland.

Mirko Lehmann, CEO of Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG; Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group; and Klaus Endress, President of the Supervisory Board at the Endress+Hauser Group, welcomed numerous customers, partners, representatives from politics and business and employees to the dedication ceremony.

The 13,500-square-meter plant includes roughly 3,700 square meters of production space, 1,500 of which is set aside for clean rooms. The office facilities and cafeteria were expanded as well. The expansion was necessitated by the increasing demands on production and the growing space requirements. Since moving to Ebnat-Kappel in 2012, Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG has doubled the number of employees at the location to nearly 200. The employees moved into the new facility after the 18-month construction project was completed in early 2019.

Headquartered in Ebnat-Kappel in eastern Switzerland, Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG is one of a manufacturer of physical, chemical and biological sensors, specializing in the development and manufacturing of thin- and thick-film platinum and nickel RTD temperature sensors, thermal mass flow sensors, capacitive humidity sensors, conductivity sensors and biosensors. The company, with 400 employees around the world, has been part of the Endress+Hauser Group since 2005.
