Anton Paar acquires Quantachrome Instruments

14-Feb-2018

Quantachrome and Anton Paar finished the purchasing process on February 9 at the Quantachrome headquarters in Boynton Beach, Florida. The companies agreed not to disclose the purchase price. Under the umbrella of the Anton Paar Group, the company will continue operations in Boynton Beach. Georg Cortolezis-Supp, Executive Director Production & Purchasing at Anton Paar, will manage the new subsidiary which is the seventh producing company within the Anton Paar Group. In line with the strategy of Anton Paar, the company is currently planning a modernization and expansion of the plant. The former president Scott Lowell and CFO Lauren Spector will provide support in the transitional period.

Friedrich Santner, CEO of the Anton Paar Group: “Quantachrome’s products are a perfect addition to our product portfolio in particle characterization. Until now, we have mainly offered analytical solutions for the physical examination of liquids and particles. With this acquisition, our expertise in the analysis of solids will be expanded. The combination of existing and new technologies from both companies will result in the creation of improved or new measuring solutions. Additionally, our strategic goal to have a US-based unit for research, development, and production within the Anton Paar Group has been fulfilled.”

Scott Lowell, former president of Quantachrome: “I am pleased that an innovative and highly valued company such as Anton Paar will carry on what we have established, developed, and produced at Quantachrome. Anton Paar is known for its great company culture, the advanced and highly precise production driven by research and development, and a demanding but also appreciative way of dealing with the employees. In contrast to many international companies, Anton Paar has a sustainable company philosophy that is reflected in their decision to continue and extend the business at Quantachrome’s headquarters in Boynton Beach, Florida.”
