NDC Infrared Engineering Merges with Beta LaserMike


IRWINDALE, CA | NDC Infrared Engineering and Beta LaserMike, both part of the Spectris family of companies and suppliers of noncontacting measurement and control solutions, have merged to create NDC Technologies.

Reportedly, the combination strengthens the new company’s position in the marketplace by offering a more comprehensive portfolio of gauging solutions with enhanced cross-selling opportunities. In addition, the new operating model expands the company’s reach to better serve its growing global base of customers. The corporate headquarters for NDC Technologies will be based in Irwindale.

According to Drew Cheshire, president of NDC Technologies, "…By combining these rich offerings into a single complete portfolio, we can provide customers with a broad range of gauging systems that meet a diverse scope of application requirements. This combination will yield many synergies and benefits in the years ahead and pave the foundation for future growth."

"This merger represents the best strategic move for both NDC Infrared Engineering and Beta LaserMike, and it is the strategy that is most likely to deliver increased value to our respective stakeholders," says Ken Wright, former president of Beta LaserMike and now president of global engineering and marketing for NDC Technologies. "We are confident that the combined company, NDC Technologies, will increase our competitive advantage in products, sales distribution, and technical support, while enhancing our relationships with customers and partners."
