With the demand for its piezoelectric and piezoresistive sensors
constantly increasing from all sections of industry, Kistler Instruments
needs additional space to meet current and future demand.
The move to the Murrell Green Business Park at Hook, Hampshire will double
the space available, allowing for dedicated calibration and repair workshops,
training rooms and increased availability of spares and stock.
Managing director, Jim Vaughan says, "The additional space will make it
possible for us to continue expansion in the UK whilst maintaining the high
standard of service Kistler users expect. We have recently seen a surge in
demand from the injection moulding industry for our cavity pressure monitoring
instrumentation. As this is a relatively new technology, we are looking at ways
of providing training needed by the industry. The new premises will allow us
to expand our in-house training capability for both our own staff and our
Kistler Instruments aims to be fully operational in the new location by mid-July
Kistler Instruments is one of the worlds leading manufacturers
of piezoelectric and piezoresistive precision sensors covering
acceleration, force, pressure and torque. Established in
Wintherthur (Switzerland) in 1957, Kistler is represented in over
50 countries and has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, UK,
Japan, USA, China, Korea and Singapore.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff
worldwide are engaged in research and development, has
generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric,
piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions
to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems.
These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor,
two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with
microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for
use up to 400 deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
