Integrated Sensing Systems’ CEO Nader Najafi, Ph.D. (right) and Endress+Hauser’s CEO, Klaus Endress (left), signed a partnership agreement earlier this month. The agreement aims to foster collaboration between the two companies to develop MEMS flow technology for existing and emerging applications.

Integrated Sensing Systems, Inc. (ISSYS,, a manufacturer of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-based flow sensors, has entered into a strategic partnership with Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG (, a global manufacturer of industrial flowmeters. The objective of the partnership is to collaboratively develop and commercialize advanced sensing fluidic products based on ISSYS” MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems) technology.

According to ISSYS, target markets for the collaboration with Endress+Hauser will include both the traditional industrial process industries, as well as emerging process and OEM applications that demand novel, high-performance measurement capabilities.

At the official announcement of the partnership at ISSYS headquarters earlier this month in Ypsilanti, Michigan were Klaus Endress, the CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, Gerhard Jost, Ph.D., the managing director of Endress+Hauser Flowtec, and Joerg Herwig, a director at Endress+Hauser Flowtec, as well as Michigan State Senator Elizabeth Brater, State Representative Alma Wheeler-Smith and Vice President of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Ned Stabler.
