Three years on: five key benefits of the Sauermann and KIMO merger
Three years ago, KIMO Instruments merged with Sauermann Industrie and Sauermann Group announced the gradual phase-out of the KIMO brand in favour of a unified Sauermann brand.
KIMO was taken over by Sauermann Industrie in 2015 and became fully absorbed into Sauermann Group in January 2020. The merger marked the official culmination of a major branding shift: henceforth, all new measurement instruments released by the Group would be Sauermann- rather than KIMO-branded. At the same time, KIMO completed its transition by ceasing to be a separate legal entity and becoming a fully-fledged part of Sauermann Group.
Here, we look back on the five biggest success stories to come out of this merger.
