CAS to become part of particle measuring systems.
Spectris plc, a supplier of productivity-enhancing instrumentation and controls, has confirmed that it has acquired CAS Clean Air Service AG (CAS), a leading full-service supplier of cleanroom measurement systems that have a strong customer base within Switzerland and the DACH region.
CAS is based out of its headquarters in Wattwil, Switzerland, and also has five other sites in Stein, Switzerland; Vienna and Innsbruck, Austria; and two in Germany. CAS will be fully integrated into
Particle Measuring Systems (a Spectris Company), a global technology leader in the environmental monitoring industry and the largest particle counter manufacturer in the world. The CAS name will become a product brand within PMS.
Established in 1989 in Wattwil, Switzerland, CAS--a privately-owned Swiss company--has become a trusted provider of cleanroom technology. Its monitoring and advisory services have generated strong growth within the pharmaceutical manufacturing, medical technology, plastics technology, and optics markets. CAS is expected to continue to deliver strong growth, leveraging PMS's strong industry and channel leadership in contamination monitoring and in expanding its GMP Services knowledge and expertise to develop across Europe and worldwide.
"This is a strategic move for Particle Measuring Systems," said John Mitchell, president at PMS. "The acquisition of CAS fits perfectly with our strategy of expanding our presence with pharmaceutical manufacturers, and particularly with aseptic manufacturers. CAS will provide a strong presence in Switzerland and expands our base within the DACH region, provides a foundation to expand our GMP services business outside of DACH, and provides the opportunity for the CAS organization and brand to grow with PMS."
