Leeds & Northrup reorganizes to focus on global markets.

Aimed at improving the company's focus and service to its process control and instrumentation markets worldwide, a major organizational change has been announced by Leeds & Northrup, North Wales, PA, a unit of Stamford, CT-based General Signal Corp.

Citing ever-growing global competition and the need to focus its strengths, the company has been organized so that it will evolve along clearly defined market thrusts to more effectively meet the needs of its markets. To implement these strategies worldwide, L&N has established four global Business Segments, with the management of each responsible for marketing, application engineering and R&D.

The Utility Business will plan market direction and support instrumentation sold globally to utilities, including all types of steam and electric power generation, as well as water and waste treatment. It will be headed by Al Kramer, vice president.

The Industrial Business segment will have global responsibility for control, recorder, flow and analytical instrumentation. Headed by Randy Diamond, vice president, this business will provide leadership and direction for the development and successful implementation of global strategies to carry L&N instrumentation solutions into both established and new industrial markets, as well as support the global strategies of the Utility Business.

The Sensor Products Business will include L&N's Metallurgical Products Group, Pittsburgh, PA, and Hy-Cal Engineering, El Monte, CA. This unit makes physical property sensors and related instrumentation, as well as special temperature and humidity sensors. It will be headed by Dan Fish, vice president.

The After-Market Service Business will be headed by Joe Uricchio, director, and support all of L&N's Industrial and Utility products and systems, as well as selected third-party equipment, with a dedicated commitment to ensure continued customer satisfaction.

According to W E. Williamson, president of Leeds & Northrup, "L&N can now better respond to customers' needs, take advantage of new markets and opportunities, and thereby grow its business."
