HBM and Brüel & Kær Sound & Vibration to merge

Published: 24 May 2018 - Victoria White

HBM has announced it will be merging its activities with BKSV (Brüel and Kær Sound and Vibration) from 1 January 2019.  Both owned by UK based Spectris Plc, the new company will be named HBK (Hottinger, Brüel and Kjær).

Both HBM and BKSV are global leaders in their respective disciplines and have complementary expertise across the measurement chain.  By leveraging their respective strengths, the aim is to create a business with the capabilities, breadth and scale to deliver differentiated customer value, for example, in the domains of propulsion, durability, safety and noise, vibration and harshness.

In preparation of the merge, a new management team has been selected, drawing on the strengths and expertise from both HBM and BKSV.  Merger preparation activities will be undertaken from now through to the end of 2018, and during this phase, both companies will operate in existing structures.  All existing HBM agreements, points of contact, procedures, partnerships etc. will continue as normal.

“Brüel and Kjær and HBM are both premium hardware providers in measurement with a strong focus on software.  By combining their activities, the two companies can deliver an integrated offering, combining sensors, data acquisition, preparation, evaluation and engineering services into one solution for its customers” says Eoghan O’Lionaird, business group director responsible for the Test and Measurement segment.

“This aligns closely with the Spectris strategy of focusing on the provision of complete solutions combining hardware, software and related services and will enable us to provide a broader service with increased value to BKSV and HBM customers.”
