Acoem strengthens its environmental monitoring capabilities with the acquisition of Met One Instruments

With the world’s attention currently focused on air quality and climate action at the United Nation’s COP26 conference, now is a perfect opportunity to for two market leaders in the air quality monitoring sector to converge — creating a single, stronger and more future-focused provider of holistic environmental monitoring solutions.

A strategic addition to Acoem’s environmental portfolio

Acoem is proud to welcome Met One Instruments Inc (Met One) into the environmental division of its global company. This acquisition is a game changer for Acoem and will solidify its position — not only as a major manufacturer of class-leading monitoring equipment, but also as the only truly all-inclusive environmental monitoring solution provider — offering in-house environmental service and maintenance capabilities and expert reporting and data analysis on a global scale. 

By combining its technology across all monitoring parameters, we are accelerating our growth to leverage opportunities in a market that is seeing a dynamic shift from government management to privatisation of environmental monitoring functionality around the world.

Met One Instruments Inc, under the leadership of founder and CEO Tom Pottberg, has been developing innovative ambient air measurement and air quality monitoring solutions from its headquarters in Grants Pass, Oregon for more than 30 years.

Two air quality monitoring pioneers unite

Since its inception, Met One has been involved in a close and symbiotic relationship with Acoem (whose air quality business was formerly known as Ecotech Pty Ltd). Together the two businesses have worked collaboratively to establish the world’s most trusted brands for instruments in dust, particulate and gas monitoring respectively.

We share a common vision to enhance environmental productivity and regulatory outcomes for government agencies, industries and populations around the world. The timing of this merger is particularly fortuitous based on the challenges that humanity currently faces, with a global pandemic and significant environmental upheavals that need to be addressed.

With Acoem and Met One together, the possibilities for precise, efficient and technologically advanced solutions for the capture and analysis of critical air quality data are limitless.
