In-Situ Inc. (“In-Situ”) has acquired Partech (Electronics) Ltd. (“Partech”), a UK-based manufacturer of drinking water and wastewater measurement equipment. The acquisition will enhance the capabilities of both companies to develop high-quality monitoring equipment and further enable their ability to provide outstanding service to an international customer base.

Founded in 1964, Partech is located in Cornwall, UK. Since its inception the company has designed measurement equipment for drinking water and wastewater, specializing in monitoring for turbidity, suspended solids, pH and sludge blanket interface detection. As an In-Situ brand, Partech will be able to leverage the resources of a larger company to better serve its customers.

In-Situ designs and manufactures environmental water monitoring equipment and software. In recent years, with the acquisition of ChemScan Inc., a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of automatic chemical analysis systems, and Mace, an Australia-based flow-meter manufacturer, In-Situ has also built a presence in the drinking water and wastewater markets. The addition of Partech further improves the company’s ability to expand its product portfolio and extend its reach into the global process market.

EC M&A acted as the exclusive financial advisor to In-Situ on this transaction.
