K-TEK Acquires KAB Instruments
Prairieville, LA — K-TEK LLC has acquired KAB Instruments Pty. Ltd. and its line of non-contact ultrasonic level measurement equipment. KAB, located in South Africa, serves the mining, plastics, pulp and paper, and aggregates industries with a robust family of ultrasonic transducers, transmitters, and controllers. Its high accuracy devices provide precise level measurement over long ranges under challenging conditions, up to 60 meters at 0.25 percent accuracy.

KAB currently operates in 53 countries around the world. Through this acquisition, K-TEK will offer all KAB products through K-TEK's distribution network in the Americas and in selected countries within Asia and the Middle East. In addition, K-TEK will maintain the current KAB distribution network with some consolidation in selected countries. K-TEK and KAB will continue collaborating on technology development and sales distribution. KAB's Managing Director, Kevin Barnfather, will relocate to the USA and take on a key business development role by overseeing the global sales and marketing responsibilities for the complete ultrasonic product line. With the addition of KAB's non-contact ultrasonic product line, K- TEK will have multiple technologies available to meet any liquid or bulk solids level measurement requirements.
