Kyowa Electronic Instruments and HBM (Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik GmbH) have agreed on a strategic sales cooperation.
Both companies will offer selected products from their respective partner to extend their own portfolio of precise, high-quality transducers and amplifiers. HBM customers particularly will benefit from a greater choice of measurement applications with higher temperature ranges or strong space restrictions.
Headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, HBM is going to sell pressure and force transducers, strain gauges, and accelerometers from Kyowa Electronic Instruments. Kyowa, which is based in Chofu-city, Tokyo, Japan, will in turn add torque transducers, optical FBG measuring solutions and piezo-electric sensors from HBM to its portfolio.
Those products will be available from April 2018 onwards and customers will be served by their known contact persons in the sales department of the respective companies.
“Both Kyowa and HBM are renowned for the high quality, reliability and accuracy of their products,” said Andreas Hüllhorst, HBM President. “I am glad that the collaboration allows us to complement our offering and to serve our customers even better.”
HBM was founded in Germany in 1950. Its product range comprises solutions for the entire measurement chain, from virtual to physical testing. The company has production facilities in Germany, USA, China, and Portugal; it is represented in over 80 countries worldwide.
