MOCON, a leading global manufacturer of permeation instrumentation, is announcing a name change for its Paul Lippke Handels-GmbH business unit headquartered in Neuwied, Germany.

Effective 1st January 2015, Lippke will be known as MOCON GmbH.

“MOCON has made considerable investments in acquisitions and organic growth to strengthen its global footprint as a market leader. Changing the name of our German business unit, is another step in support of that strategy,” said Doug Lindemann, Vice President.

MOCON purchased Lippke in 2004. During the two prior decades, Lippke had been a manufacturer of its own instrumentation and a distributor of MOCON equipment—targeting packaging, food and pharmaceutical markets and applications.

Throughout its history, Lippke has been dedicated to providing innovative high-quality products, first-class application consulting and excellent technical support throughout Europe. Its focus has been on MOCON permeation measurement systems for oxygen, water vapour and carbon dioxide and LIPPKE-branded package test systems.

MOCON GmbH will continue to be headed by Lippke Managing Director Franz Sturm who reports to Lindemann.
