Meeting uniquely North America needs for 20 years

Incorporated in 2004, KISTERS North America is a subsidiary of KISTERS.

With staff across the U.S. and Canada, our team understands and meets local customer needs with intimate knowledge of KISTERS innovations and their use worldwide. We work closely with organizations, utilities and consultants to overcome and ease all aspects of the data value-chain to inform sustainable management of water, weather, and manufacturing resources.

In 2020, KISTERS acquired Hydrological Services America, a reseller of hydromet sensors, environmental monitoring instruments and accessories by HyQuest Solutions, Sommer Messtechnik, and TriOS Mess- und Datentechnik among other manufacturers.

The combined depth of applied knowledge makes available hardware, software, and customized solutions for hydrometeorology, water quality monitoring, telemetry and remote sensing to confront 21st century challenges.
