FOSS develops rapid, reliable and dedicated analytical solutions for routine testing to allow for fast decisions on how to maximise value of production of agricultural food products.
The Foundation of FOSS
FOSS was founded in 1956 as N. Foss Electric A/S by Nils Foss. His business plan was to automate otherwise time-consuming analytical methods by offering a fast and cost efficient method of analysis - a principle that still holds true today. The first instruments were developed to test moisture in grain. These were followed by analytical solutions for the dairy industry - a major business area for FOSS alongside a growing range of other application areas. In 1997, FOSS acquired Perstorp Analytical AB, which included Tecator AB and NIRSystems Inc. This added substantial strength in reference analysis methods and in grain, flour and feed.
With more than 1,350 dedicated employees world-wide FOSS is the leading supplier of innovative analytical Solutions.
FOSS has more than 60 years of experience as the leading provider of dedicated analytical solutions to maximise value of production of agricultural food products. FOSS focuses on core business areas such as Central Milk Testing, Dairy, Grain, Milling & Oils, Feed & Forage, Meat, Wine, Biofuels and Laboratories.
FOSS has manufacturing, research and development facilities in Denmark and China. Solutions are sold and supported through FOSS sales and service companies in 28 countries and by more than 75 dedicated distributors. In fact 98 percent of FOSS’ business is generated outside Denmark.
