PANalytical, whose product range includes X-ray diffraction (XRD) systems and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometers as well as X-ray tubes, has outgrown its existing facilities in Eindhoven and is expanding into a showcase factory for the X-ray tubes division. The new factory which began production on 8 August 2011 features state-of the-art technology to enhance the production of X-ray tubes and the quality and performance of its X-ray instruments and solutions.

"We are excited to announce such a very important milestone in the evolution and visibility of PANalytical worldwide. This outstanding new building will enable us to consolidate our X-ray tube business and bring our employees together in a single, world-class, state-of-the-art factory that truly reflects the vision of our company. It will allow the X-ray tube division to optimize its operational effectiveness and efficiency as we execute our growth plans," said Peter van Velzen, CEO PANalytical.

"The Eindhoven area is the birthplace of several of the world's most brilliant high-tech companies, attracting engineers with a broad specialist knowledge in the field of X-ray physics, high voltage, vacuum, electron optics, materials science and process technology. By further strengthening its position as a technology leader and innovation facilitator, PANalytical leverages the dynamics of this region and ensures employment of highly educated personnel for the long term."

"PANalytical has great faith in the future and continues to invest in new tube technology and product development," continued van Velzen. "The three-storey building will break new ground in the field of X-ray tube manufacturing with its unique modern clean-room installations and efficient floor layout. The factory also includes light and spacious work areas that form a stimulating working environment, foster employee collaboration, and benefit health and well-being."

"Further, the new factory has been designed to contribute to sustainability and environmental care and complies with state-of-the-art building standards," said Maarten van Andel, General Manager PANalytical Eindhoven.
