TASI Group Grows Global Leak Test Capabilities With Germany’s innomatec
The TASI Group of Companies has taken ownership of the German leak test company, innomatec Test.
innomatec will be organized in the TASI Product Integrity Segment, which includes Cincinnati Test Systems (CTS), CTS-Schreiner, Sciemetric and Sierra CP. This addition will geographically expand the reach of the Division’s leak test business into Europe and enable it to deliver an unmatched combination of technology and expertise to the global market.
CTS-Schreiner will be organized under innomatec, providing sales, service and manufacturing resources for Southern Europe from Munich. Mike Schillings, previously the managing director of innomatec, will continue as Managing Director Global of the combined entity. In this role he will work to expand the core competencies and market reach of the innomatec team in the areas of special test equipment, development and production of quick-connector systems and measuring instruments, and automation.
“We are pleased to have innomatec as part of our organization and are eager to support Mike and his team in continuing their strategy which is fully complementary to TASI,” said TASI CEO John McKenna. “CTS and innomatec have followed similar paths over the past 40 years. Each has built a strong engineering team that is focused on solving customer challenges with innovative leak test technology, quick connectors and custom systems development.”
“Together, we have the comprehensive portfolio of industrial leak testing products to create new opportunities and equip global manufacturers with the capabilities they need for the future,” add-ed Schillings. “Existing customers of CTS, innomatec and CTS-Schreiner will benefit from the significant support and operational reach each organization has in North America, Europe and Asia. I am committed to being a part of the team and look forward to working with new partners who so clearly understand what we do and want to achieve and share our vision for growth.”
“Wherever in the world our customers operate, they can now choose leak test instruments and test solutions from CTS or innomatec with added confidence that they will receive full service and support locally,” said CTS President Kevin Hansell. “They will be the primary beneficiaries as we combine our shared passions for engineering innovative solutions and delivering best-in-class customer service and support.”
