Dover to acquire Em-tec GmbH

Dover has agreed to acquire Em-tec GmbH, a designer and manufacturer of flow measurement devices that serve a wide array of medical and biopharmaceutical applications.

Following the close of the transaction, Em-tec will become part of the PSG business unit within Dover's Pumps & Process Solutions segment. PSG is a global pump and dispensing solution expert and manufacturer of pumps, systems and related flow-control technology.

Em-tec is headquartered in Finning, Germany, and has a 30-year history of producing flow measurement equipment used in connection with cardiac, vascular and transplant surgery, dialysis and "life support" procedures, automated bioprocess monitoring, and laboratory and industrial processes where flexible tubing is used. Em-tec has pioneered non-invasive flow measurement using the ultrasound transit-time principle and its devices have demonstrated the ability to deliver superior measurement results relative to competing offerings.

"We are excited to bring together Em-tec's flow measurement devices and PSG's Quattroflow pump technology to expand our offering to our customers in biopharma and medical applications," said Richard J. Tobin, Dover's president and chief executive officer.
