Siemens Energy & Automation Inc . has signed an asset purchase agreement to acquire the assets and business of Controlotron Corp . Siemens expects to complete the deal in May, but did not disclose terms.

Purchase of Controlotron, a manufacturer of non-intrusive ultrasonic flow measurement devices, is expected to enhance Siemens' position in the process instrumentation market. Siemens expects to operate the acquisition from Controlotron's Hauppauge, NY-location, and make it a center for ultrasonic flow measurement. Controlotron employs approximately 120 people. Siemens said it would extend formal offers of employment to workers a week before the deal is final.

"Controlotron is highly recognized for its advanced technology in non-intrusive flow measurement, and its strong market positions in oil and gas, water and wastewater, HVAC, energy, and pipeline applications," said Aubert Martin, president and CEO of Siemens Energy & Automation. "A combined portfolio represents a robust and complementary offering."
