Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG, part of the Endress+Hauser Group, officially opened an expansion of its plant in Ebnat-Kappel, Switzerland on May 24. The facility, built at a cost of nearly €15 million (about $16.7M), now offers double the floor space.

“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.

The 13,500-sq-m plant includes roughly 3700 sq m of production space, 1500 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.

Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG is a manufacturer of physical, chemical and biological sensors, specializing in the development and manufacturing of thin- and thick-film platinum and nickel RTD temperature sensors, thermal mass flow sensors, capacitive humidity sensors, conductivity sensors and biosensors. The company, with 400 employees around the world, has been part of the Endress+Hauser Group since 2005.
