LeCroy , specializing in oscilloscopes and protocol analyzers, was taken over by his American colleague Teledyne at the beginning of the summer. The company will now be called Teledyne LeCro y. It is not an integration strictly speaking but rather a harmonization of nomenclatures. In the instrumentation sector (electronic, chemical, environmental, oceanographic), which now represents a third of Teledyne's turnover, the group's twenty or so companies all bear the name of Teledyne, followed by their name of 'origin ( LeCroy, Monitor Labs, Benthos, Isco, etc.). Teledyne wants its name to be attached to the instrumentation sector. This policy contrasts with the approach of other groups such as Danaher for example, which have deliberately taken the bias to step aside behind the companies they are buying (eg Fluke and Tektronix have not been renamed). Others, on the contrary, completely rename the companies but keep and capitalize on the brands (this is the case of Hexagon , for example). Still others absorb them quickly ( GE Sensing with Druck for example). To each his own strategy!
