The sensor specialist Innovative Sensor Technology, a subsidiary of the Endress+Hauser Group, announced on May 24 2019 the official opening of a new expanded facility of its plant in Ebnat-Kappel in eastern Switzerland. The expansion projects costed nearly 15 million euros and offers double the floor space. 

Mirko Lehmann, CEO of Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG; Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group; and Klaus Endress, President of the Supervisory Board at the Endress+Hauser Group, welcomed numerous customers, partners, representatives from politics and business and employees to the dedication ceremony. “The growing demand for innovative sensors, and the corresponding strong growth at Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG, made it necessary for us to expand the facility. We’re confident that we have created the space we need to produce even more innovations,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group. 

Growing demand


The 13,500-square-meter plant includes roughly 3,700 square meters of production space, 1,500 of which is set aside for clean rooms. The office facilities and cafeteria were expanded as well. The expansion was necessitated by the increasing demands on production and the growing space requirements. Since moving to Ebnat-Kappel in 2012, Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG has doubled the number of employees at the location to nearly 200. The employees moved into the new facility after the 18-month construction project was completed in early 2019.
