Two companies in Silicon Valley announce a business merger that will accelerate the use of MEMS and Nano technologies in the gas detection industry. A joining of Nano/MEMS technology with top grade product engineering will assist in solving virtually any gas detection need. KWJ/TTI facilities include a new state of the art clean room for sensor manufacture as well as equipment for R&D, custom engineering, manufacture and calibration of complete gas detection systems.
Newark, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2007 — Silicon Valley (Newark, CA) companies Transducer Technology, Inc. and KWJ Engineering Inc. announce a merger that not only benefits the two companies, but will help the gas detection industry as well.
“This merger will bring together the best of two worlds,” TTI President Joseph Stetter said, “We will have cutting edge technology and top grade engineering in one complete package. This consolidation can solve virtually any customer’s gas detection need, no matter how challenging.”
The combined company will officially be called KWJ Engineering, however Transducer Technology will still operate as a division within the new corporation. That means new and existing TTI customers will still be able to purchase products directly from TTI, saving them any hassle in changing over their existing invoicing or contract information.
“We are very excited about this opportunity,” Ken Johnson, Chairman of KWJ Engineering said, “TTI is providing the new product technology base in sensors, pocket-size instruments, and spectrometers to combine with our engineering and manufacturing expertise in gas detection technology. This is exactly what both companies need to foster substantial growth. Both Joe and I have synergistic experience and we both built and sold our former companies in this same market.”
Transducer Technology, Inc. is a premiere manufacturer & developer of a wide array of nano- and MEMS-based chemical sensor products and accessories used for safety, hygiene, process and environmental measurements. Founded in 1999 by Dr. Joseph Stetter, TTI is a product of years of ongoing commitment to advancing sensor technology R&D. Recently TTI has launched a new patented platform for ultra-low-power gas detection and created new IP in MEMS and Ion Mobility Sensors. Chemical sensors for a wide variety of applications are available within the broad-based proprietary TTI sensor platforms and include, but are not limited to: CO, H2S, NOx, H2, O3, Cl2, VOC, and CH4.
KWJ Engineering Inc. is a California corporation dedicated to specialized gas detection applications in the safety field. The Company was founded in 1993 by Ken Johnson, together with his son Larry Johnson, to continue work in specialized types of gas detection instrumentation, after the sale of his previous company, GasTech, to Thermo Electron in 1992. Staffed by personnel whose combined experience in gas detection instruments totals more than 100 years, the company serves several niche markets. The company occupies 4000 ft2 in Newark, California, on the edge of California’s Silicon Valley. KWJ/TTI facilities include a new state of the art clean room for sensor manufacture as well as equipment for R&D, custom engineering, manufacture and calibration of complete gas detection systems.
