The history of MIPEX goes back to about 20 years ago – that’s how long it took the company’s founders and leading experts to deliver the technology that now drives the entire line of MIPEX products.
In mid-90’s, two companies called ICO and IGM Instruments joined their efforts to undertake a single innovative project aimed at creating an entirely new generation of combustible gas sensors for methane and hydrocarbons. Several years later, when the core technology was ready for mass production, two major investors joined the project to assist its further growth. This timely secured funding was channeled into increasing production volumes and entering new markets.
Two decades of continuous research and development resulted in the creation of a groundbreaking technology that lives up to the challenges of tomorrow and is perfectly aligned with the needs of our customers. Handling every aspect of sensor production and taking advantage of lean production techniques, we dramatically reduced the time to market and remain flexible at all times. At MIPEX, innovation never stops and continuous improvement is firmly embedded into our corporate DNA.
Today, MIPEX is a leading manufacturer of optical IR (NDIR) gas sensors for OEM’s producing gas analysis equipment intended for collective and individual safety.
Our success on the market can be largely attributed to our established, fine-tuned processes and production culture. With scrupulous quality assurance applied to each manufacturing milestone, we are completely confident in the utmost quality of every unit leaving our conveyor. And yet our success as a company is not measured in the number of units we produce per year, but rather by the scale and importance of problems that our product and our work solve. We are proud to drive innovation and offer truly disruptive technologies capable of changing the landscapes of entire markets.
MIPEX products have earned a reputation for their remarkable reliability, accuracy of measurement and durability, which is the direct result of rigorous lab and field testing preceding the release of any sensor to the market.
Our ultimate goal is to make our sensors immune to nearly every known type of environmental stress: pressure, vibration, chemical poisoning, moisture and so many more factors lavishly offered by the harshest artificial and natural environments. If you are an OEM company with special needs, you will receive full technical support before and after to ensure that MIPEX sensors deserve to be the centerpiece of your gas analysis equipment.
