In August, Teledyne Technologies Incorporated announced its successful acquisition of the 3M gas and flame detection business for $230m in cash. The gas and flame detection business includes Oldham, Simtronics, Gas Measurement Instruments (GMI), Detcon and select Scott Safety products.
The business provides a portfolio of fixed and portable industrial gas and flame detection instruments used in a variety of industries, including petrochemical, power generation, oil and gas, food and beverage, mining and waste water treatment.
The Oldham, Simtronics, GMI and Detcon brands bring together over 100 years of industry experience across a wide range of standard products and customised solutions. These rugged trace gas analysers feature fast response time, intrinsically safe sensors and satisfy multiple international certification standards.
Teledyne executive chairman Robert Mehrabian said: “We are excited to welcome this new core business and its employees to Teledyne. The gas and flame detection business utilises similar technology and serves related markets as our portfolio of environmental instrumentation businesses.
However, our respective products do not compete and we generally serve customers in complementary geographies. We have now completed two corporate carve-out acquisitions in 2019, and we closed each transaction within two months of announcement.”
Teledyne management expects the transaction to be accretive to GAAP earnings per share in the first year after the acquisition.
