INFICON, a manufacturer of instruments for gas analysis, measurement and control, is celebrating 50 years of business.

Back in 1969 the company introduced the first solid state halogen leak detector and has since succeeded as a leader in gas analysis, measurement and control for a variety of markets. 

“INFICON’s journey over the past 50 years is founded on a deep desire to develop the solutions our customers need to be successful,” said Lukas Winkler, President and CEO of INFICON. 

“Whether maximising processes, ensuring safety, or assuring quality, INFICON products have been at the forefront of innovation and continue to raise the bar on what technology can be asked to do.”

INFICON’s product portfolio includes residual gas analysers and gas analysis systems; thin film deposition controllers, monitors and accessories; intelligent manufacturing software; chemical identification systems; leak detectors, and vacuum gauges.

The company’s anniversary celebrations were held throughout the INFICON worldwide organisation in the final months of 2019, beginning at the company’s first location in East Syracuse, New York.
