Spectris plc

NDC Infrared Engineering is owned by Spectris plc and was formed when Infrared Engineering Ltd (which had been acquired in 1992) merged in 1998 with NDC Systems Inc. (which had been acquired in 1997). Both companies had operated as private entities until their acquisition and the roots of both were to be found in the rapid advances in sensor technology in the 1960's and 70's. IRM Group SA was acquired in 2011 to spearhead NDC's sales in the metals industry and is now part of NDC.
