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, www.mems-issys.com), a manufacturer of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-based flow sensors, has entered into a strategic partnership with Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG (www.us.endress.com), 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.
