02 November 2016

Pepperl+Fuchs has acquired ecom instruments GmbH, a manufacturer of mobile industrial devices for hazardous areas, including explosion proof cell phones, 4G smartphones and tablets. 

“In ecom instruments we found an industry pioneer with 15% growth rate lately who, for decades, proved and strengthened his technology leadership in mobile explosion protection and now complements our offering with a competitive portfolio reaching far into the future” said Dr. Gunther Kegel, CEO of the Pepperl+Fuchs group.
“Besides the expanded product portfolio we can see new opportunities arising along the entire value added chain. With this we can strengthen our offering in the field of explosion protection, and also achieve a better market position – with a partner from our region – and consequently generate new solutions around the complex of Industry 4.0,” added Kegel.

 “The expertise in explosion protection and the wide-spread international sales force of Pepperl+Fuchs made them our favorite partner from the very beginning. Our innovative devices do not only fill a gap in their portfolio, but allow ecom instruments and Pepperl+Fuchs to develop future business models and solutions at the Center of Competence at Assamstadt to gain access to the enormous growth potential of the ongoing digitalization of industry,” said Rolf Nied, founder and managing partner of ecom instruments GmbH.
