Teledyne acquires gas and flame detection business

45549702094 e39cb824df cCalifornia based Teledyne Technologies Incorporated has successfully acquired the gas and flame detection business of manufacturing company 3M for US$230mn in cash

The gas and flame detection business includes Oldham, Simtronics, Gas Measurement Instruments (GMI), Detcon and select Scott Safety products.

Robert Mehrabian, executive chairman of Teledyne, said, “We have now completed two corporate carve-out acquisitions in 2019, and we closed each transaction within two months of the announcement.”

The gas and flame detection business provides a portfolio of fixed and portable industrial gas and flame detection instruments used in a variety of industries including petrochemical, power generation, oil and gas, food and beverage, mining and wastewater treatment.

The Oldham, Simtronics, GMI and Detcon brands bring together more than 100 years of industry experience across a wide range of standard products and customised solutions. These rugged trace gas analysers feature fast response time, intrinsically-safe sensors and satisfy multiple international certification standards.

“We are excited to welcome this new core business and its employees to Teledyne. The gas and flame detection business utilises similar technology and serves related markets as our portfolio of environmental instrumentation businesses. However, our respective products do not compete and we generally serve customers in complementary geographies,” Mehrabian added.

Teledyne management expects the transaction to be accretive to GAAP earnings per share in the first year after the acquisition.
