Alphasense joins the AMETEK family

Alphasense, the Essex-based gas sensor manufacturer, is delighted to announce its acquisition by AMETEK, the global leader in electronic instruments and electromechanical devices.

Founded in 1996 and celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Alphasense will continue to operate from the company's head office and manufacturing facility in Braintree, Essex.
Alphasense's product range and day-to-day operations will remain unchanged, with Erik Boergesen from AMETEK MOCON joining the company in the coming weeks to oversee the transition period alongside Alphasense Interim CEO Peter Saxton.

"This is a significant moment in the history of Alphasense," said Peter Saxton. "AMETEK's operational style and growth strategy will create new opportunities for us over the coming years to build customer relationships around the world and develop our product range across existing and new markets. On behalf of the Gotley family, I extend my sincere thanks to colleagues past and present for their contribution to Alphasense."

AMETEK consists of two operating groups: Electronic Instruments and Electromechanical. The company employs people at numerous manufacturing, sales and service locations in the United States and in many other countries around the world.
Despite the new interest and opportunities generated by the acquisition, Erik Boergesen believes Alphasense's existing strengths will still be the key to achieving future growth.

"With the business recently turning 25 years old, we're at a pivotal point where investment, insight and expertise from a company with AMETEK's pedigree can help us push forward to reach new heights," said Erik Boergesen. "Having said that, we still remain fully focused on delivering excellent product performance and outstanding customer service in our pursuit of this future growth."
