SI Pressure Instruments will become part of GE Druck (Leicester, U.K.), which is a unit of GE Industrial Systems' measurement business. SI Pressure Instruments is a global provider of advanced technology, pressure instruments and measurement systems for many industries, including aerospace, automotive, food, oil and gas, power generation, utilities, marine and process engineering. GE Industrial Systems is a $6-billion unit of General Electric Co.

SI Pressure's products include pressure generators, pressure calibration systems, digital indicators, deadweight testers, and monitoring and control software. These products are used in industries that require highly accurate calibration or pressure checking for critical instruments.

"We're pleased to announce the completion of the SI Pressure Instruments acquisition, which continues GE's expansion in sensors and instrumentation technologies," says James Shepard, president and CEO of GE's measurement business. "SI Pressure Instruments brings to GE growth through expanded products and services in pressure instruments and measurement systems, and is a complement to our measurement and sensing technologies.

"We can provide greater customer value by achieving new synergies with SI Pressure Instruments, and we will present the world with an even broader array of GE measurement and sensing solutions. These will help control and protect living and work environments with increased safety, comfort, and productivity. We expect the collaboration between our growing sensors and instrumentation businesses, especially in the U.K,. will only help further accelerate profitable growth."
