s::can’s owner company Badger Meter, Inc. (NYSE: BMI) today announced the acquisition of Analytical Technology, Inc. (“ATi”), a privately held provider of water quality monitoring systems.
With the acquisition of s::can and ATi, Badger Meter shows its clear vision to provide a fully comprehensive, robust and scalable water quality monitoring offering that delivers real-time data on demand to municipal water utilities and industrial users – along with its vast expertise with innovative solutions in flow metering.
s::can, as the leader in detecting spectral and physical online water quality parameters, and ATi, as the leading provider of analytical sensor monitoring solutions for water and gas applications, are from now on working shoulder to shoulder. The two companies complement each other not only in their offerings, but also in the geographical regions where they are active. While ATi has a large customer base in the USA and the UK, s::can is also very active in the rest of Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Central America.
On a day-to-day basis, for s::can it is business as usual. The headquarters of s::can remains in Vienna, Austria and the sales offices spanning North and Central America, Europe and Asia will continue operating. s::can will be working with the world-class Badger Meter and ATi teams on delivering an even wider range of products and solutions to our well-established customers in the markets we serve.
In the future, this leads to expanded resources, water quality competence times two and multiplied know-how, which will bring additional value for all s::can customers around the world.
s::can GmbH was founded as a University spin-off in 1999 and is based in Vienna, Austria. With sales offices in six countries and sales partners around the world, s::can water quality monitoring systems are available in more than 45 countries.
