Acquisition of Corporate Scientific Claisse Inc.

Almelo, the Netherlands | Posted on June 20th, 2014

Claisse designs, manufactures and sells consumables and instruments used to prepare consistent and comparable samples for spectroscopic analysis in mining, pharmaceutical, academic research and industrial applications. Claisse will become part of the Materials Analysis segment and will be integrated into PANalytical, combining two leaders in fusion and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis.

Eoghan O'Lionaird, Spectris Business Group Director, said: "Claisse is a strong strategic addition to Spectris' Materials Analysis segment as it deepens our presence within the sample preparation market. Claisse is renowned for its innovation and fusion technology leadership, and we are confident that the market will benefit from PANalytical's support of Claisse's continued product and application development plans. We believe there is a strong cultural fit with PANalytical, and that the combined capabilities will create significant value for our XRF customers, as well as increasing PANalytical's resilient revenues."
