Fluke Corp., a global player in portable electronic test and measurement technology, has acquired Hawk IR International Ltd. of North Yorkshire, U.K. The latter will continue to operate as Hawk IR International as part of the Fluke Electronics Industrial Division.

The
acquisition represents a significant global opportunity for Hawk IR
International, says Fluke, adding that under Fluke ownership, Hawk IR
will have access to resources, business systems and channels to market
that will expand its ability to deliver products that improve the
safety and efficiency of thermal imaging.




“We are
extremely proud to be part of the Fluke family,” said Tony Holliday,
Hawk’s managing director. “As the world leader in thermal imaging for
industrial applications, Fluke Thermography gels perfectly with our
arc-resistant infrared sightglass products. With a global network of
electrical experts and distributors, the combination will bring safe
and efficient electrical thermography to users worldwide.”




“Bringing
Hawk IR into the Fluke family provides benefits to both organizations,
as well as to our channel partners and customers,” said Fluke
Industrial president Ken Konopa. “Customers of both Fluke and Hawk IR
benefit from a coordinated offering of thermal imagers and peripheral
equipment, as well as being able to tap a rich base of knowledge.”
