AMETEK Land, the world’s leading manufacturer of monitors and analysers for industrial temperature measurements, is celebrating 75 years of producing innovative systems and solutions for industries including metals, glass, hydrocarbon processing and power generation.

Founded in 1947 by Tom Land, AMETEK Land now employs around 150 people worldwide, supporting customers with industrial temperature measurement, combustion efficiency and emissions monitoring.
