Thermo Electric

Thermo Electric Instrumentation acquired by Swedish Pentronic

On 25 October 2018, the shareholders of Thermo Electric Instrumentation B.V. have announced the sale of the company to Pentronic AB. The sale is part of Thermo Electric Instrumentation’s growth strategy that will be further accelerated through partnering with an industry partner with a complementary geographic footprint and product range.

Majority shareholder Foreman Capital, in close consultation with management, decided earlier this year to investigate the potential divestment of Thermo Electric Instrumentation in order to enable the company to accelerate its long-term growth strategy. Becoming part of a group with a complementary product portfolio and geographical footprint will allow Thermo Electric to further expand the company’s activities and realize its growth opportunities. With Pentronic AB, supported by Indutrade AB as a group holding company, Thermo Electric Instrumentation  has found such a partner. The sale of Thermo Electric Instrumentation is the logical next step following the company’s carve out from Doedijns Group International at the end of 2013. In the meantime, the company has focused on further professionalization and growth.

Pentronic, founded in 1965, is a company that manufactures temperature sensors and related items, and is seen as absolute market leader in Scandinavia. Since 2001, Pentronic has been part of Indutrade AB, a Swedish listed company with a portfolio of companies focused on high-end products and solutions. Indutrade has a long term vision which is fueled through acquisitive growth of companies active in industrial manufacturing or trading.

Thermo Electric Instrumentation B.V. will continue to operate as a standalone company with a strong product-market focus, focused on realizing its growth potential.

TE-Masterclass

On Monday November 27th and Tuesday November 28th, Thermo Electric Instrumentation invited a wide variety of customers at their premises in the Netherlands for the TE-Masterclass. During the two-day event Thermo Electric Instrumentation provided a profound training on temperature measurement, temperature sensors and temperature calibration.

The first day was primarily focused on the basic principles of temperature measurement and the diversity in temperature sensors such as thermocouple constructions and RTD sensors. In addition to the basic theory about the sensors, participants were invited to join an in-depth discussion about obtaining the best measurement results in a wide range of applications to combine theory with daily reality.
In close cooperation with SIKA Germany, the second day of the TE-Masterclass was fully dedicated to temperature calibration. During his day the “how” and  “why” have been discussed alongside a practical training on laboratorial and portable temperature and pressure calibration.
We would like to thank all attendants for their participation and interest in the TE-Masterclass.
As the second edition of the TE-masterclass was successful, new dates and TE-masterclass topics for 2018 will follow soon! Do not miss your chance to participate in next year’s editions!
