Sales Center and Kaiser Optical Systems European headquarters together under one roof

Endress+Hauser has invested 4.9 million euros in a new building in Lyon. As well as 25 sales and service employees from Endress+Hauser, nine employees from the European headquarters of Kaiser Optical Systems will move into the new facility.

“The new building offers modern offices for our employees and abundant space for customer training,” says Laurent Mulley, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser France, who is delighted with the new facility. “At the same time we are bringing together Endress+Hauser's process control technology and the advanced analysis processes of Kaiser Optical Systems under a single roof. We are thus laying a foundation that will allow us to strengthen our presence in the French market over the long term,” added Laurent Mulley during the dedication ceremony that was attended by customers, as well as guests from business and government.

Close collaboration

“One of the cornerstones of our strategy is to one day support our customers' lab and process control applications,” explained Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group. “Having Endress+Hauser and Kaiser Optical Systems in proximity in Lyon illustrates the progress we are making in carrying out this strategy.” Expanding the business in the area of process control and laboratory analysis reflects the wishes of many customers for enhanced quality parameter measurements.

Long-term investment

The new energy-efficient office building is located near Lyon–Bron airport, in one of the fastestgrowing business regions in France. The building houses 1,500 square meters of office space, warehouse facilities, a training center and a presentation room for customer training. With a total of around 7,000 square meters of space, the campus offers sufficient room to grow the location further.

Synergies for optimal customer management

The primary beneficiaries of the collaboration between Endress+Hauser and Kaiser Optical Systems are customers in the life sciences, chemical, water & wastewater, food & beverage and oil & gas industries. American-based Kaiser Optical Systems was acquired by Endress+Hauser in 2013. The company's Raman spectroscopy analyzers are designed for examining the composition and properties of liquid, gas and solid materials.


Endress+Hauser in France

Endress+Hauser France has more than 250 employees at its headquarters in Huningue and at offices in Paris, Bordeaux and Lyon. As well as the French market, the Sales Center also oversees the Group's business in French-speaking Africa. Kaiser Optical Systems has 76 employees at its headquarters in Ann Arbor/Michigan, where the production facilities are co-located. The nine employees assigned to the Lyon office are coordinating the European sales activities.
