Commenting on the investment, Dan Alpha, Detcon’s founder, said: “This is great news for our customers, employees and distribution network, as we now have a partner to pursue our vision of growth and extend our reach with an expanded product set”. President Bob Masi added: “We will continue our focus on the design and manufacture of innovative and practical solutions for a wide range of industrial markets, and look forward to a successful future”.
Alpha and Masi will remain involved with the company going forward.
Established in 1983, Detcon produces a wide range of sensor technologies and product designs, which are engineered to perform reliably in the most challenging and rugged industrial environments. The company, which has a particular strength in oil and gas markets, will join recently acquired Gas Measurement Instruments (GMI) as an independent operating company within Battery’s Industrial Safety Technology platform.
