Brüel & Kjær and Lochard Join Forces


Providing world-class Environment Management Solutions

(I-Newswire) February 9, 2009 - Brüel & Kjær announces the acquisition of Australian company Lochard Ltd. with the intention of providing customers with world-class Environment Management Solutions.

Environment Management Solutions (EMS) involve monitoring and management of noise and climate parameters in cities and airports with the purpose of reducing environmental impacts and to ensure compliance of national and international regulations.

The Lochard business will be combined with Brüel & Kjær's airport and urban monitoring business to form a new EMS business unit within the Brüel & Kjær group, focused on delivering innovative Environment Management Solutions for airports and urban environments. The new global EMS business will be headquartered in Melbourne and run by the existing Lochard executive team.

Combining the strengths of Brüel & Kjær and Lochard will provide customers with access to a full range of products, solutions and services within Environment Management Solutions, backed by an extensive technical and application support network in 55 countries. The acquisition of Lochard will enable Brüel & Kjær to develop, market, and support an increased product portfolio, including Lochard's NoiseOffice suite of managed noise services and innovative, web-based services.

Lochard is a global leader in supplying environmental monitoring systems and services to the world's airports. A strong and trusted brand in the industry, Lochard is known for delivering innovative solutions including a complete range of quality services for airport noise management.

Lars Rønn, Managing Director at Brüel & Kjær, comments, "Environment Management Solutions is a strategic growth area and the acquisition of Lochard increases the breadth of products and services that Brüel & Kjær can provide its customers. Increasing regulation on permissible noise levels means that city administrations and businesses, as well as airport and airline operators, are demanding sophisticated solutions for monitoring and managing noise. Lochard's NoiseOffice, a suite of managed noise services, provides an ideal solution to our clients who need to do more with less".

Martin Adams, Managing Director of Lochard, says, "Lochard is joining forces with Brüel & Kjær to provide customers with unparalleled access to the Brüel & Kjær extensive network and global infrastructure and excellent range of instrumentation together with Lochard's innovative, web-based and managed services. With the new business unit, we look forward to applying our extensive experience to assist airports and urban authorities to reduce their environmental impact and demonstrate compliance and transparency in environmental reporting".
