H2scan Relocates to Larger Facility to Meet Increased Demand for Its Industry-Leading Hydrogen Analyzers

New Facility Means Increased Development, Production & Testing Capabilities for H2scan and Reduced Lead Times for Customers & Partners

VALENCIA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 8, 2011) - H2scan Corporation, provider of the most accurate, tolerant and affordable hydrogen leak detection and process gas measurement solutions for industrial markets, today announced that it has relocated its headquarters and operations to a larger facility within the Valencia area. The new building provides almost five times their old shop floor footprint enabling H2scan to scale up production to meet the increasing demand for their safety and process products. This additional space also means increased product development and production capacity to rollout hydrogen monitor solutions for the transformer market.

"This move marks a major milestone for H2scan and validates the innovation and appeal of our hydrogen sensing products. We've substantially upgraded our development, production, and testing capabilities allowing us to better serve our customers and strategic partners," said Dennis Reid, H2scan's President & CEO. "Going forward, our goals are to reduce shipment lead times, continue to focus on critical hydrogen-specific applications where demand is strong, and more quickly and effectively integrate partner initiatives."

The new Technology Center consolidates H2scan engineers, scientists, software developers, and management, and the R&D/Engineering Lab provides a much larger functional and secure place to test and further develop the Company's patent-protected sensor technology. Additionally, the facility can expand as needed to support growing manufacturing, warehousing, engineering, and administration departments.

Extending its footprint and capabilities even further, H2scan has also partnered with National Technical Systems (NTS), a leading provider of engineering and testing services worldwide, to secure its own environmental testing lab on NTA's regulatory-compliant property in Santa Clarita (10 miles away). The lab enables H2scan technical personnel to test analyzers, and pre-condition both process and transformer monitors in hazardous background gases. This safe and secure facility will also help H2scan accelerate development and advancement of its sensors' capabilities.

About H2scan Corporation

H2scan was founded in 2002 and has its headquarters, sales, production, and marketing staff in Valencia, California. The Company provides the most accurate, tolerant, and affordable hydrogen leak detection and process gas monitoring solutions for industrial markets enabling accurate monitoring and control functions for a wide range of applications, including control systems, safety monitoring and alarm systems. H2scan also provides portable, handheld configurations for easy leak detection and monitoring.

H2scan's hydrogen specific sensing systems based on a patented "Chip on a flex" technology are able to detect and measure hydrogen without false readings or expensive support equipment required. This makes it ideal for the NeSSI™ platform. H2scan's process systems have the ability to operate in real-time, with or without the presence of oxygen, no interference from CO or H2S, separating H2scan from all other in-line measuring technologies. The leak detector sensing systems are able to detect hydrogen in air down to 15 ppm concentration without cross-sensitivities to other gases.

The company's solid-state technology was originated at Sandia National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy and is only available commercially through H2scan. Its products are sold in over 50 countries worldwide. For more information, please visit www.h2scan.com.
