LinkedIn +

Kistler has acquired German company Schatz including its US sales and service business Schatz USA. This expands the company’s offering in the quality assurance market in industrial manufacturing. The Schatz Group can now market its systems through Kistler’s global sales network, giving it access to previously underexploited markets.

The driving of screws is still one of the most elementary basic processes in industrial manufacturing, and the monitoring and inspection of screw connections is extremely important in quality assurance, especially in the automotive industry.

CEO Rolf Sonderegger, said, “The takeover is a logical step for Kistler in the implementation of its overall growth strategy. We want to use our measuring technology in even more applications and increase the number of complete systems and targeted services that we offer.”
