PANalytical and Malvern celebrate US office opening

Malvern, UK | Posted on July 7th, 2008

Gjalt Kuiperes and Brian Dutko, general managers of PANalytical and Malvern's US companies respectively, led the day of celebrations following the ribbon cutting ceremony. The expansion into the new premises comes at a time of sustained business growth for both companies.

"As well as growing our business across the Americas, we have consolidated former east and west coast sites and have relocated our warehouse to Westborough," said Peter van Velzen, managing director of PANalytical. "Importantly, the move has also given us the freedom to expand our application laboratories. These now include a cleanroom for wafer analyzers, a sample prep room, and large application labs for XRD and XRF. As well as PANalytical's extensive range of X-ray analysis products, in the labs there is an optical emission spectrometer from OBLF, for which PANalytical is the exclusive distributor in the USA and Brazil. With more spacious training facilities we can now offer a greater number of in-house courses to our customers."

Malvern has similarly expanded its applications and training facilities. Managing director Paul Walker commented: "This move reflects the continued growth and success of the company, and also the expansion of the business in recent years to encompass a broadening range of technologies and instrumentation for materials characterization. These new premises provide the infrastructure and facilities to underpin our future."

Cutting the ribbon was John O'Higgins, chief executive of parent company Spectris plc. Alongside were Jim Webster, business group director at Spectris with Peter van Velzen, managing director of PANalytical (Almelo, The Netherlands) and Paul Walker, managing director of Malvern Instruments (Malvern, UK).

About PANalytical and Malvern Instruments
Malvern Instruments provides a range of complementary materials characterization tools that deliver inter-related measurements reflecting the complexities of particulates and disperse systems, nanomaterials and macromolecules. Analytical instruments from Malvern are used in the characterization of a wide variety of materials, from industrial bulk powders to the latest nanomaterials and delicate macromolecules. A broad portfolio of innovative technologies is combined with intelligent, user-friendly software. These systems deliver industrially relevant data enabling our customers to make the connection between micro (such as particle size) and macro (bulk) material properties (rheology) and chemical composition (chemical imaging).

Particle size distribution, particle shape information, zeta potential, molecular weight, chemical composition, and bulk materials properties can all be determined with instruments from the Malvern range. The company’s laboratory, at-line, on-line and in-line solutions are proven in sectors as diverse as cement production and pharmaceutical drug discovery.

Headquartered in Malvern, UK, Malvern Instruments has subsidiary organizations in all major European markets, North America, China, Korea and Japan, a joint venture in India, a global distributor network and applications laboratories around the world.

PANalytical is the world’s leading supplier of analytical instrumentation and software for X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF), with more than half a century of experience. The materials characterization equipment is used for scientific research and development, for industrial process control applications and for semiconductor metrology.

PANalytical, founded in 1948 as part of Philips, employs around 900 people worldwide. Its headquarters are in Almelo, the Netherlands. Fully equipped application laboratories are established in Japan, China, the USA, and the Netherlands. PANalytical’s research activities are based in Almelo (NL) and on the campus of the University of Sussex in Brighton (UK). Supply and competence centers are located on two sites in the Netherlands: Almelo (development and production of X-ray instruments) and Eindhoven (development and production of X-ray tubes). A sales and service network in more than 60 countries ensures unrivalled levels of customer support.

The company is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001.

The product portfolio includes a broad range of XRD and XRF systems and software widely used for the analysis and materials characterization of products such as cement, metals and steel, nanomaterials, plastics, polymers and petrochemicals, industrial minerals, glass, catalysts, semiconductors, thin films and advanced materials, pharmaceutical solids, recycled materials and environmental samples.
