NDT System & Services has been acquired by the Weissker Group, an international, mid-sized business holding based in Greiz in Thuringia in east-central Germany.

“NDT is perceived by its customers as technology leader in the field of automated non-destructive ultrasonic testing systems, especially regarding inline inspection tools and stationary systems for plate inspection in steel mills. We want to build on this technological strength and use our own expertise to ensure a sustained economic success for NDT in the future,” said Stefan Matthaei spokesman for Weissker.

NDT CEO Dr. Holger Schmeisser said, “The acquisition will allow us to grow the worldwide activities of NDT for our customers in the steel, railway as well as oil and gas industries and to expand our cutting-edge inspection systems and magnetic and ultrasonic technology platforms.”

He said NDT will target new customer groups in North America, the Middle East, Russia, and in the gas sector.
