Chicago, IL; Kassel, Germany— 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 results of its acquisition, Danaher says this respected European brand of digital, multi-function controllers, and associated products are available in North America with local support. PMA's controllers include advanced features, such as diagnostics, simulation software, graphical trend recording, position feedback, and rate of change monitoring.

'We're excited about adding a superior brand with leading-edge technology,” says Shane Leonard, director of DICG’s process control business unit. “Now we can support our customers with a wider range of products, serving more applications, particularly those requiring complex control. The combination of PMA with our existing West and Partlow brands strengthens DICG’s position as a world-class supplier of industrial process controls.”

PMA's line includes panel and DIN rail mounted units, plus modular designs for control of temperature, pressure, flow, humidity, fluid level, and other process variables.
