MOCON, Inc., Minneapolis, announced a name change for its Ringsted, Denmark-based subsidiary Dansensor A/S to MOCON Europe A/S.

“MOCON has made considerable investments in acquisitions and programs to support organic growth. These initiatives have strengthened our global footprint as a market leader. By establishing a European subsidiary, which eventually will sell all MOCON brands, the company is in a better position to address the needs of food, beverage and pharmaceutical companies on the continent,” says Robert Demorest, president and CEO.

MOCON Europe will continue to develop and produce products under the Dansensor and Lippke brands, representing the company’s full line of gas and water vapor permeation instruments and the GreenLight microbial detection system.

MOCON Europe will remain under Erik Børgesen’s leadership as its managing director and CFO. He will partner with MOCON’s U.S.-based senior executive team in leading the organization.
