Mettler-Toledo buys Smiths X-ray business
April 1, 2011
Mettler-Toledo has acquired the Smiths Detection Product Inspection division and will adopt the Eagle brand of food x-ray inspection systems. The Eagle business will continue to operate as a separate entity using existing sales and service channels. Eagle customers will benefit from a strengthening of service and support through a larger network of service technicians and application support. Additionally, Eagle is now part of Mettler-Toledo’s Product Inspection division, which is focused on helping food manufacturers meet their inspection requirements. With this acquisition, Mettler-Toledo is increasing its commitment to the food x-ray business, which will drive additional strategic investments in technology and application development.
