BOULDER, Colo., June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Particle Measuring Systems is celebrating 40 years of leadership in contamination monitoring. Founded by Dr. Robert Knollenberg in 1972 in Boulder, Colorado, and still headquartered there, the company has grown to be the global leader in contamination monitoring with 40% of its employees outside of the U.S. including direct operations in Italy, Japan, China, Denmark, Germany, and Singapore. Purchased by Spectris PLC in 1996, the success of Particle Measuring Systems continues with nearly 100% growth since 2009, record sales in 2010 and 2011, and 2012 is on pace to set new records.
Particle Measuring Systems has a long tradition of technical leadership: the first company to use lasers in optical particle counters, revolutionizing the technology; the first to use network communications; the first use diode lasers; the first to use multi-element detectors; the first to measure 0.05 µm in water; the first to measure 0.04 µm in chemicals; the first to queue data within the particle counter when communications are interrupted; the first to have a VHP resistant counter; the first to design a system to combine particle and microbial samplers; and the list goes on across all industries and applications supported. This dedication to innovation continues today with the latest innovations for the electronics and aseptic manufacturing industries: the only company to use camera systems in optical particle counters and the only company to provide an integrated system combining particle counters and microbial samplers.
This unsurpassed leadership isn't limited to technical capability. With literally thousands of installations around the world, their application experience in electronics and pharmaceutical manufacturing is unparalleled. Particle Measuring Systems personnel are widely considered as expert in helping pharmaceutical companies comply with government regulations and the pharmaceutical business continues to grow rapidly.
John Mitchell, President of Particle Measuring Systems, states, "I'd like to thank all the dedicated employees, business partners, and especially customers who have made our success possible. I look forward to another 40 years of success helping our customers control and improve their manufacturing processes."
