Sensitech to add temperature-monitoring business

June 18, 2024
Carrier company agress to acquire Berlinger’s monitoring solutions division, which specializes in managing sensitive goods in pharam, life science, and other cold chain segments.

Sensitech, part of Carrier Global Corporation, recently agreed to acquire Berlinger & Co.’s monitoring solutions business.

Berlinger is a Swiss family-owned company that specializes in temperature-monitoring solutions for sensitive goods in the pharmaceutical and life science, clinical trial, and global health segments.

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter, Carrier reported.

“The acquisition of Berlinger’s monitoring business is an exciting opportunity for Sensitech to expand our portfolio of monitoring solutions for pharma supply chains and accelerate growth in strategically important adjacencies,” Bhasker Kaushal, vice president and general manager for Sensitech and the refrigeration aftermarket, said in a news release. “Digitization, sustainability, and automation are transforming pharma supply chains and driving adoption of real-time monitoring and cloud-based solutions.

“Sensitech and Berlinger share a common vision and focus on innovation, and through this combination we will deliver comprehensive and differentiated monitoring solutions that deliver patient safety, supply chain efficiency, and sustainability outcomes for our customers. We look forward to welcoming the Berlinger team to Carrier and Sensitech.”

Berlinger brings a suite of proprietary and high-quality hardware and software solutions that broaden Sensitech’s end-to-end cold chain monitoring product portfolio. These include the SmartSystem platform, which enables modular, real-time, end-to-end monitoring via fully integrated, rechargeable temperature monitoring devices and a cloud-based software platform; Fridge-tag for vaccine fridges and refrigerated site-monitoring; and proprietary software and analytics to automate the end-to-end stability and validation process for clinical trials.

Berlinger’s monitoring solutions business includes approximately 85 employees in Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United States.

“We are absolutely convinced that Sensitech can successfully further develop our Berlinger & Co. AG business together with its skilled and dedicated employees,” said Andrea Berlinger, chairwoman of the board of directors for the Berlinger Group.
