itmsoil sells instrumentation business to Nova Metrix LLC

Geotechnical and structural monitoring specialist itmsoil has completed the sale of their manufacturing business, Soil Instruments, to Nova Metrix. Focusing fully on monitoring services, itmsoil, being renamed ITM Monitoring, will be delivering an end to end  instrumentation and monitoring service, from producing monitoring design plans through to installation, system support, data visualisation and maintenance.

“As ITM Monitoring we will have greater capacity to design and deliver instrumentation systems to meet the specific needs of each and every project.  We will continue drawing upon the extensive range of Soil Instruments products and those of other sensor and technology supply chain partners.  Previously, we had to divide our management time, focus and investment between monitoring services and instrumentation manufacture.  Now we can concentrate entirely on developing, installing and supporting exceptional monitoring solutions and delivering high value, reliable data to our customers”, commented Jon Scott, managing director.

“Our focus has always been on understanding every customer’s requirements and using our significant expertise gained over the past 30 years to tailor the individual monitoring scheme, data visualisation and support service we provide for them”.

It is this approach that has seen more than 30 years of successful delivery of service for clients including Network Rail, the Highways Agency, London Underground and The Coal Authority, working on projects including M6 Toll, Jubilee Line Extension, CTRL, Crossrail, The Olympic stadium, Frankfield Loch and London Gateway Port.

Jon Scott further added, “Nova Metrix is a world leading provider of geotechnical, environmental and materials testing products, serving the structural health, construction, civil engineering and energy markets.  It is ideally placed to take the Soil Instruments manufacturing business to its next stage of development with its wealth of sector experience in both product development and manufacturing.  Soil Instruments can look forward to a strong and secure future under Nova Metrix’s leadership and commitment to growth and innovation.”
