Backed by the private equity investment firm, Union Park Capital, KPM Analytics was formed in 2015 with a quest to bring together a portfolio of analytical instrument companies focused in the food, agriculture, and environmental sectors. The ultimate goal is to allow diverse organizations with proven technologies, strong brand recognition, industry expertise and a passion for solving customers problems to thrive together as a strategic group.
Through this united approach, our customers will be better served with a broader, more robust scientific instrumentation offering supported by a global network and application expertise in:
- Food quality and safety
KPM Analytics continues this quest to expand its portfolio of industry experts and premium brands with back to back acquisitions of Sensortech Systems Inc. and Sightline Process Control in May 2019, further strengthening the KPM Analytics offering.
See our recent posts to learn more about the Sensortech, Sightline, AMS Alliance, CHOPIN Technologies, Process Sensors and Unity Scientific acquisitions.
KPM Analytics Leadership
Chris McIntire, Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Chris McIntire has been involved with mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the analytics space since his early days at Orion Research, Inc., then a small company out of Beverly, MA. With a strong R&D, IT and Operations leadership foundation built during his tenure at Orion, Chris learned how to operate, acquire, and add value from the ground up. Thermo Electron’s acquisition of Orion provided further opportunity for learning. Chris moved into the General Manager’s role for Thermo Electron’s Explosive Detection Business, leading Thermo’s effort to provide the nation’s airports with explosives detection technology in the wake of 9/11.
With a proven leadership record of both organic and inorganic growth through M&A and successfully bringing products to market, Chris joined Nova Analytics, part of Nova Ventures. As an operational leader Chris set and executed the Nova Analytics M&A growth strategy and held a CEO position in Weilheim, Germany, where he lived with his family. Chris returned to Nova’s headquarters in Boston and served as president and COO. Nova Analytics was bought by ITT Corporation, then an $11B multinational, in 2010.
After ITT spun the water focused business forming Xylem Inc., Chris continued as an executive officer of the nearly $4B multinational as President of the Analytics and Treatment Growth Center. Chris spent five years reporting to Xylem’s CEO and was responsible for over $600M in revenue.
Now as CEO of KPM Analytics, a Union Park Capital portfolio company, Chris continues to focus on both organic and inorganic growth backed by M&A strategy, bringing global instrumentation brands and their industry experts together to solve complex problems for their customers.
Rainer Roehrig, Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
In September 2017, Rainer Roehrig joined KPM Analytics as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) after seven years as Vice President of Finance for Xylem’s Analytics and Treatment growth centers. Prior to Xylem, Rainer was part of the Nova Analytics leadership team who built an analytical instrumentation platform that ultimately sold to ITT Corporation in 2010, then becoming Xylem Analytics in 2011.
Rainer brings extensive experience in both private and public multinational companies in the analytical instrumentation space. Degreed in economics from Universität Konstanz, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, Rainer has carved a path of exceptional financial leadership with focus on Merger & Acquisition (M&A) and business integration to optimize financial reporting and controlling systems.
With Rainer’s deep knowledge of the analytical instrumentation market and financial management leadership in both large and small corporations, Rainer joins KPM Analytics as not only CFO, but also as a critical business partner.
Rainer resides outside Munich, Germany with his family.
