After extensive market and competitor research, US consulting firm Frost & Sullivan concluded that Endress+Hauser supports its customers better than any other provider in the area of liquid analysis. The global Company of the Year Award for water analysis instrumentation is based on an independent study. Analysts took into account each company’s visionary innovation and performance as well as customer impact. With 9.25 points out of a possible 10, Endress+Hauser clearly sets itself apart from the competition, which scored 8.5 and 7.5 points.
Strategic focus on the analytical business
The company’s success in liquid analysis is no coincidence. Endress+Hauser views the entire field of analytics as a focus of development. “Our customers want to measure more than just process conditions. They also want to determine material characteristics and product quality in real-time while the process is running,” explained Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, the strategy.
Endress+Hauser relied on acquisitions to bolster the process analytical business with state-of-the-art technologies such as Raman and laser absorption spectroscopy. The Group has also opened the door to laboratory analytical business through the takeover of Analytik Jena AG.
