Industrial Physics expands global footprint with Torus Group acquisition

Industrial Physics, a provider of test and measurement instruments, has announced the acquisition of Torus Group, a UK-based expert in quality control measurement systems and metrology.


The move marks a significant development for Industrial Physics, as it seeks to bolster its ability to serve as a quality partner to customers across several key end markets, including food and beverage and medical devices.


Torus Group, known for its strong portfolio in measurement for metal and rigid packaging, has recently expanded into plastic packaging.


Following the acquisition, Industrial Physics customers across the globe will have access to an even wider range of solutions, including test and measurement equipment, metrology services and machine enclosure support.


Barry Lyon, CEO of Industrial Physics, said: "Packaging innovators need reliable test and measurement solutions to navigate rapid development across the industry and ensure the quality and safety of their products. With Torus Group's more than 20 years of experience and localised support teams, this acquisition will support our purpose of protecting the integrity of brands and products."


Chris Freshman, Torus Group's group director of business development, added: "Joining Industrial Physics is an exciting opportunity for Torus Group. Our shared commitment to quality, safety and innovation will deliver significant benefits for our customers."


The acquisition aligns with Industrial Physics' ambitious growth strategy, as laid out by Lyon upon his appointment in July 2023. The company aims to expand its global reach and provide a wider range of solutions to meet the evolving needs of customers in the packaging, material testing and metrology industries.


Industrial Physics, headquartered in the US, serves customers across various end markets, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and consumer goods. The company's family of specialist testing brands fulfils a critical purpose in protecting the integrity of brands and products for R&D, quality control and operations experts worldwide.
