SensoLogic becomes part of the Uhlmann Group

Digital solutions are gaining significance in pharmaceutical packaging. In view of this fact, Uhlmann Pac-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG signed a purchase agreement to acquire SensoLogic GmbH, a technology-oriented company based in Norderstedt near Hamburg. The activities of the SensoLogic team of specialists include the development of customized software solutions for analytical instruments, as well as for laboratory and process automation.

“Over the past 70 years, Uhlmann has evolved from a machine manufacturer into a leading global systems supplier for the packaging of pharmaceutical products in blisters, bottles, and cartons. The acquisition of SensoLogic enables us to complement and strengthen our digital expertise. At the same time, SensoLogic will continue as an independent company under the current management. Nevertheless, close cooperation with the Uhlmann digital division is planned, from which both parties will profit”, explains Norbert Gruber, Chairman of the Uhlmann Executive Board. In the context of the takeover, all jobs in the two companies will be maintained.

As Managing Director of SensoLogic, and also the previous owner, Dr. Heinrich Prüfer sees good prospects for his company by amalgamating with Uhlmann. “The Uhlmann Group is a responsible and future-oriented partner for us. We can pursue successful development and create long-term perspectives under this new umbrella.” In addition to its cooperation with Uhlmann, SensoLogic will continue to market its SL software for chemometric spectroscopy and independently serve its customers.

In recent years, SensoLogic GmbH generated average annual sales in the region of EUR 510,000. Founded in 1998, the company develops and markets software solutions for quantitative and qualitative analyses in the context of chemometric spectroscopy. SensoLogic also offers calibration services and training courses. A second field of business is the development of customized software solutions for analytical instruments, as well as for laboratory and process automation, supplemented by project-based technical consulting and training courses.
