Geotechnical and structural monitoring specialist itmsoil has completed the sale of its manufacturing business, Soil Instruments Ltd, to Nova Metrix.
Focusing fully on monitoring services, itmsoil, renamed ITM Monitoring Ltd, will be delivering an end-to-end instrumentation and monitoring service, from producing monitoring design plans through to installation, system support, data visualisation and maintenance.
“As ITM Monitoring, we will have greater capacity to design and deliver instrumentation systems to meet the specific needs of each and every project. We will continue drawing upon the extensive range of Soil Instruments products and those of other sensor and technology supply chain partners,” commented Jon Scott, managing director.
“Previously, we had to divide our management time, focus and investment between monitoring services and instrumentation manufacture. Now we can concentrate entirely on developing, installing and supporting exceptional monitoring solutions and delivering high value, reliable data to our customers.”
Scott added: “Nova Metrix is a world leading provider of geotechnical, environmental and materials testing products, serving the structural health, construction, civil engineering and energy markets. It is ideally placed to take the Soil Instruments manufacturing business to its next stage of development with its wealth of sector experience in both product development and manufacturing. Soil Instruments can look forward to a strong and secure future under Nova Metrix’s leadership and commitment to growth and innovation.”
