Scienta Scientific has acquired Envinet GmbH as of March 31, 2021. Envinet GmbH is the market leader in area monitoring radiation protection networks with installations in over 70 countries. Area monitoring networks are used for civilian protection against nuclear radiation incidents. Envinet provides solutions based on gamma radiation detection.
Scienta Scientific is already active in radioactive monitoring through its business area Scienta Sensor Systems. Scienta Sensor Systems provides early warning systems for radioactive incidents based on airborne Xenon detection.
Scienta Sensor Systems and Envinet will together create the new application area Environmental Protection within Scienta Scientific under the joint brand Scienta Envinet. The strengths of area monitoring from Envinet, early warning systems by Scienta Sensor Systems together with the global sales and service reach of Scienta Scientific will create a unique competitive position to support customers with complete Radiation Protection Network solutions.
Scienta Scientific has grown organically and through acquisitions from 8 MEUR in 2013 to 50 MEUR in 2020 (on-going business basis pre-acquisition), with global presence in Europe, China, US, Japan and Korea. The acquisition will add to our business already in 2021.
“This deal is well aligned with our strategy to grow organically and through selected acquisitions, both within our current application areas and in the general market of Scientific Instruments.”
– Hans Åberg, Chairman
“Our purpose of providing Nobel Prize technologies for science, industry and governments requires us to be at the forefront of technology, and then work to spread the technology through affordability. This deal will strengthen our leading position within our application area Environmental Protection.” – Johan Åman, CEO
