Halma expands gas detection capabilities with acquisition of Sensit

Feb 14 2020 Read 366 Times

Halma has acquired Sensit Technologies, LLC (“Sensit”), a gas leak detection company based in Indiana, USA.

Sensit’s technologies are closely aligned to Halma’s purpose of growing a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone, every day. Sensit manufactures products that enable natural gas utilities to detect leaks in their pipes, reducing climate change effects by minimising emissions of methane, protecting workers in the natural gas distribution industry, and ensuring compliance with regulatory standards. Its technologies are also used in emergency response situations by firefighters entering burning buildings to ensure that they do not face explosion risk due to leaking natural gas.

Sensit will become part of Halma’s Process Safety sector and will continue to be led by its existing management team from its current location.

Andrew Williams, Group Chief Executive at Halma, commented: "Sensit enhances Halma’s gas detection capabilities, with its strong market position and technological capabilities in the natural gas leak detection market. Its growth is supported by tightening safety and environmental regulatory standards, which protect communities and workers from hazards, and minimise climate change impacts. We look forward to working with its management team and continuing its strong track record of growth supported by Halma’s strategic Growth Enablers.”
