Thanks again for sticking with the process and clarifying what
information would meet your needs.
Exergen, as a relateively small, private company founded in 1980, does
not have an enormous "footprint" as a business entity -- there is a
limited amount of information available on its size, structure, and
Nevertheless, the information listed below should be enough to give
you an overall feel for the sales of the company, and how they are
distributed among divisions.
Before rating this answer, please let me know if there is anything
else you need. Just post a Request for Clarification, and I'll be
happy to assist you further.
All the best,
For starters, of course, there's the 2003 Boston Herald article that
puts the company's annual sales at $10 million:
Holosonic tunes out VC offers
October 9, 2003
"...His dad, Francisco Pompei, founded and runs Exergen Corp., a $10
million company that makes devices that measure internal temperatures
Another article from the 2002 Sensor Business Digest (available
through some newspaper databases like Factiva or Lexis-Nexis), offers
some details about sales from Exergen's Industrial Division:
EXERGEN STREAMLINES IR THERMOCOUPLE MEASUREMENT
August 1, 2002
Sensor Business Digest
"...In 2001, Exergen's Industrial Division had sales of about $5
million, most of which was accounted for by IR sensors. The Industrial
Division hopes to achieve a 20% increase in sales for this year...."
The article also provides details about the market for Exergen's IR
products (the bullets below are direct excerpts from the article):
-- Exergen's IR thermocouple sensors have established a strong
foothold in printing (e.g., paper temperature or roller temperature
--Exergen's IR thermocouple sensors are also being increasingly used
in diverse applications, such as paper manufacturing, packaging
machines, laminating machines (measuring the temperature of
laminants), road paving and repair (monitoring the temperature of
asphalt), ice skating rinks, measuring tire tread temperature during
tire manufacturing and testing, monitoring tire temperature of cars
during racing, agriculture/horticulture, food processing/preparation,
heat/fire detection in rail cars, and facilities with a large number
--Applications...that have keen potential to mushroom into very large
businesses for Exergen's IRt/c thermocouple sensors include monitoring
temperature in railroad cars that pass through the Euro tunnel, and
buildings with many computers.
--Additional applications that Exergen believes have strong growth
potential for their non-contact sensors include food processing (e.g.,
monitoring temperature of a buffet to prevent food spoilage) and
relatively small printers and copiers. Furthermore, Exergen has had
discussions with North American automakers about possibly using their
IR sensors in HVAC/climate control systems to provide information
about the body temperature of vehicle occupants to achieve enhanced
--Exergen's SnakeEye...thermal switches, priced at about $500, allow
for detecting minute amounts of heat energy in a product...
--...Exergen introduced the DX-series of handheld IR thermometers,
which provide the NIST-traceable technology of the D-series handheld
IR surface temperature thermometers at a reduced cost... about $299.
I mentioned that there are several commercial databases, along the
lines of Dun & Bradstreet, or Reference USA, that include listings on
Exergen, and offer some additional information. By searching several
of these databases, I found that:
--Exergen's annual sales were listed as $8.8 million (no year provided).
--The company's Buidling Services Division was listed with sales of
between $0.5-1.0 million
So in summary:
--Total sales between $8.8 - 10 million
--Industrial Division sales about $5 million
--Building Services Division sales between $0.5-1.0 million
--This implies that other company operations, such as their medical
division, account for roughly $3-4 million in sales.
I trust this information fully meets your needs.
But again, just let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
