“This acquisition will provide our mutual customers in oil and gas, water and other industries with access to an expanded range of leading-edge instrumentation and sensing technologies.” he said. “We see a lot of potential for synergy between ABB’s extensive geographic reach and exposure to other industries, and K-TEK’s depth in level detection technology.”

The acquisition is in line with ABB’s strategy to pursue growth opportunities that complement the company’s product, technology and geographical portfolio.
