Solinst is a high quality groundwater and surface water monitoring instrumentation manufacturer and CityKinect is a cellular connectivity provider focused on helping manufacturing integrate cellular into their offerings.
“Reducing the challenges of getting good sensor data has always been a priority at Solinst,” said Jim Pianosi, President of Solinst. “Now with an integrated offering including global cellular connectivity, it’s easier than ever before for customers to deploy and not worry about coverage at site. It just works.”
Customers of Solinst will now be able to have cellular access to multiple carriers in a location with one SIM card, reducing customer costs with traditional single carrier providers, and not worrying which network has coverage where a deployment occurs.
Shaun Connor, CEO of CityKinect,” said “Solinst has been fantastic to work with, and really understands their customers’ needs. By taking this step together we are enthusiastic about growing both companies in the Environmental Monitoring space”.
Solinst Canada Ltd. has been manufacturing high quality groundwater instrumentation since 1980 when company president Doug Belshaw recognized the need for innovative and easy-to-use instrumentation for the growing hydrogeology field.
