Pepperl+Fuchs, manufacturer of industrial sensors for explosion protection, acquires Ecom Instruments GmbH, maker of mobile industrial devices for hazardous areas including explosion proof cell phones, 4G smartphones and tablets.

“Besides the expanded product portfolio, we can see new opportunities arising along the entire value added chain,” says Dr. Gunther Kegel, CEO of the Pepperl+Fuchs group. “With this we can not only strengthen our offering in the field of explosion protection, but we can achieve a much better market position – with a partner from our region – and consequently generate new solutions around the complex of Industry 4.0.”
