CUPERTINO, CALIF. - Measurex Corp. is setting up a technology center in an existing Cincinnati office to develop and support the on-line measurement and control systems and ConceptOne gauging system it acquired in December. Measurex, a maker of process controllers, purchased Ohmart Corp.'s Webart Division and is adding its products to the line of the Measurex industrial systems division, which has annual sales of about $22 million, half to the plastics industry. Webart had sales of about $5 million.
The combination creates a major source of web measurement and control systems for the plastics, extrusion, coating and nonwoven industries. Measurex, based in Cupertino, has subcontracted with Ohmart to manufacture the product line under the Measurex ConceptOne brand.
