MOCON, Inc. has merged its wholly-owned subsidiary Baseline-MOCON, Inc., into the parent company, effective Oct. 1.

The former subsidiary will now be doing business as MOCON. The well-known Baseline® Series brand name for online gas chromatographs, hydrocarbon analyzers, OEM sensors, and hand-held VOC detectors will be retained. These products are used in the oil and gas exploration, industrial hygiene, specialty gas, and environmental monitoring markets.

“We see several benefits to merging the Baseline business unit into MOCON. These well-respected product lines will now benefit from an even higher level of engineering and development support across MOCON’s extensive international network. This means that our customers will ultimately benefit by the shared resources,” said Don DeMorett, Chief Operating Officer.

MOCON has made considerable investments in acquisitions and organic growth to strengthen its global footprint as a market leader. Merging the Baseline business unit into the parent company is another step in support of that strategy. There are no anticipated changes in operations or management.
