Industrial Gas Sensor Division Relocates Following Acquisition


Newly-formed SGX Sensortech Limited (UK) has cemented its recent multi-million pound acquisition of the instrumentation solutions business from e2v Technologies PLC with a move to new premises for one of its UK divisions.

The Industrial Gas Sensors division of SGX, the leading designer and manufacturer of gas sensors and x-ray detectors, has relocated from the site it occupied on Waterhouse Lane in Chelmsford for the last 50 years.

The move has seen the entire team transfer to a (8,500 sq ft) factory specifically modified to cater for sensor production on Hanbury Road in Chelmsford.

Tony Trocian, International Sales Manager for SGX Sensortech (IS), said: “We are delighted to officially unveil the relocation to our new, fit-for-purpose site, which marks a key milestone for us following the acquisition earlier this year.

“We are looking forward to starting the New Year in our new premises and further building on our success and strong heritage of innovation in the design and development of sensors by continuing to provide products of the highest quality and performance.

“The acquisition has positioned us as a market leader of innovative sensor and detector devices that offer unrivalled performance. The relocation is a vote of confidence for our capabilities and is just the start, with exciting plans for new sensors in the pipeline for next year.”
