LumaSense Technologies Inc., Santa Clara, Calif., has acquired the thermal imaging and services assets of Louisiana-based Reliability Point, which provides an array of equipment and related services to manufacturers in the Gulf Coast region and southeastern United States. The acquisition allows LumaSense to enhance the sales, support and aftermarket services for its line of thermal imaging devices such as infrared cameras used in industrial plants.

Both companies have had an ongoing relationship and the deal is considered a "natural evolution," says Bob Arnold, president of Reliability Point in Zachary. “For the last five years, Reliability Point and LumaSense have worked closely together on a number of industrial thermal imaging projects."

Reliability Point customers include petrochemical, oil and gas, steel and other process manufacturers. The company will retain its other distribution arms such as vibration instrumentation, precision laser systems, corona cameras. For more information about Lumasense, go to
