Private Equity Firm Buys Weiss Instruments

Weiss Instruments was acquired by Foundation Investment Partners. Based in Holtsville, N.Y., Weiss creates temperature and pressure instruments for commercial HVAC/R and OEM customers, including those in the foodservice industry.

Weiss’ product line includes HVAC thermometers and pressure gauges, OEM dial thermometers for the foodservice industry and light-powered thermometers for air conditioning, refrigeration, foodservice, food retail, and industrial applications.

As part of the deal, FIP will combine the Weiss manufacturing facility with Miljoco Instrument Corp., which is a 50,000-square-foot facility in Mt. Clemens, Mich. The Weiss and Miljoco brands and distribution networks will remain separate, per a release announcing the deal. Also, Steve Weiss has re-joined the company as vice president of sales and marketing.
