MSA's recent acquisition of Senscient, Inc., a leader in laser-based gas detection technology, will strengthen MSA’s position in the global market for Fixed Gas and Flame Detection (FGFD) by expanding and enhancing technology offerings.

Senscient’s patented Enhanced Laser Diode Spectroscopy (ELDS™) technology combines their core detection principle with sophisticated signal processing to create a wide range of open path toxic and flammable gas detectors.  ELDS technology eliminates false alarms and enables faster, more reliable detection of hazardous gases, thereby improving worksite safety while reducing operational costs.

Kerry Bove, Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer for MSA, added that the acquisition of Senscient immediately strengthens and fast tracks MSA’s new product development efforts in the area of laser-based, open-path gas detection.  “Senscient’s innovative technology provides the perfect complement to our existing fixed gas and flame detection portfolio.  Equally important, it provides further technical and competitive differentiation to MSA’s fixed gas and flame detection business,” Mr. Bove concluded.

MSA has been protecting people and facilities for over 100 years, and this transaction represents a key step in the execution of MSA’s Core Product growth strategy.
