Everett, Wash. – Fluke Corporation has acquired Hawk IR International Ltd. of North Yorkshire, U.K.

Hawk IR will continue to operate as Hawk IR International under the Fluke Electronics Industrial Division and will continue to service its customers and partners globally.

The acquisition represents a significant global opportunity for Hawk IR International. Under Fluke ownership, Hawk IR will have access to resources, business systems and channels to market that will expand its ability to deliver products that improve the safety and efficiency of thermal imaging.

“We are extremely proud to be part of the Fluke family,” said Tony Holliday, Managing Director of Hawk IR International Ltd. “As the world leader in thermal imaging for industrial applications, Fluke Thermography gels perfectly with our arc-resistant IR-Window products. With a global network of electrical experts and distributors, the combination will bring safe and efficient electrical thermography to users worldwide.”

“Bringing Hawk IR into the Fluke family provides benefits to both organizations, as well as to our channel partners and customers,” said Fluke Industrial President Ken Konopa. “Customers of both Fluke and Hawk IR benefit from a coordinated offering of thermal imagers and peripheral equipment, as well as being able to tap a rich base of knowledge.”

Fluke resources and advanced manufacturing strategies will allow Hawk IR to expand its world leading product lines into new markets and to increase existing market depth penetration.
