RP news wires, Noria Corporation

Roper Industries has acquired Hardy Instruments, a California-based provider of custom solutions for process weighing, tension control and vibration monitoring.


Hardy Instruments has provided superior, innovative products and excellent customer service for more than 85 years. Its process weighing technology provides new opportunities to companies under Roper’s Energy Systems and Controls group. Roper’s excellence in market connectivity and international presence will aid Hardy’s global reach and future growth.


Metrix Instrument Co., a customer-driven provider of condition monitoring instruments, has been a Roper company since 1995. Metrix will gain from Hardy’s engineering and technical expertise as Hardy’s vibration monitoring products are integrated into the Metrix line.


“With Hardy’s addition, we can now offer a fully compliant API-670 protection system to our extensive global markets,” said Chris Krieps, president of Metrix.


Hardy will continue to drive the process weighing and tension control segments of their business out of San Diego.
