Danaher Industrial Controls Group (DICG) reports it recently acquired Prozess und Maschinen Automation (PMA) GmbH from Netherlands-based Geveke Industrial Group. For more than 75 years, PMA has manufactured controllers, sensors, transmitters and software for chemical and pharmaceutical processing, plastics molding, automotive manufacturing, metals production, power generation, and other applications. As a result of its acquisition, Danaher is offering PMA digital, multi-function controllers and related products in North America with local support.

By adding PMA to its line-up, Danaher can offer a level of closed-loop controller sophistication that it says was previously hard to find in North America. PMA brand controllers include diagnostics, simulation software, graphical trend recording, position feedback, and rate-of-change monitoring. The PMA line includes panel- and DIN-rail-mounted units, plus modular designs for control of temperature, pressure, flow, humidity, fluid level, and other process variables.

Shane Leonard, director of DICG's process control business unit, says the wider range of products serves more applications, particularly those requiring complex control. "Combination of PMA with our existing West and Partlow brands strengthens DICG's position as a world-class supplier of industrial process controls."
