K-Tek acquires pressure, temperature switch company

06/22/2006


K-Tek LLC level instrumentation vendor is acquiring Beta B.V. , a Dutch manufacturer of pressure and temperature switches. Beta serves virtually all industry sectors with a broad product line. It operates throughout Europe, Asia, and portions of the Middle East.

K-Tek plans to offer Beta products through its distribution network in the Americas and in selected countries in Asia and the Middle East. The company said it intends to maintain the current Beta distribution network with only minor changes. The two vendors report that they will continue to collaborate on technology development and sales distribution, with K-Tek focusing on liquid and solids level measurement and Beta on pressure and temperature switch applications.

Expressing a desire to make the acquisition a win-win situation for the companies and their customers, Rao Sanampudi, K-Tek President and Chief Operating Office said that “combining K-Tek’s manufacturing expertise and sales distribution network with Beta’s product and name recognition will provide customers around the world with another quality product line.”
