Metrohm acquires B&W Tek

30-Jul-2018

Metrohm AG from Herisau, Switzerland and B&W Tek from Newark in Delaware, USA are pleased to announce the acquisition of B&W Tek’s Spectroscopy Solution Business, B&W Tek LLC, as well as several overseas subsidiaries. This acquisition contributes to the strategic growth of Metrohm enhancing the company’s capabilities to further develop its Raman product line with industry-leading solutions.

“We are pleased to strengthen our product portfolio in spectroscopy by the acquisition of B&W Tek’s R&D, production and sales organizations,” says Dr. Christoph Fässler CEO and president of Metrohm AG, summarizing the goal of the acquisition on behalf of Metrohm.

Dr. Jack Zhou, CEO of B&W Tek LLC, says: "We are excited to see the accelerated growth potential as the result, in furthering the focus on customer-centric solutions and innovations. The addition of complementary products and technologies by B&W Tek, together with Metrohm’s expertise in products and commercialization as well as market presence will allow us to serve a much larger global customer base.”

Both parties agreed to keep details about the acquisition confidential.

To avoid any disruption and to continue to give B&W Tek’s existing customers the best possible experience, B&W Tek will continue to operate under their own brand with their own sales and service organization for the time being. After this transition period, the gradual integration of B&W Tek into the Metrohm organization will then be started taking into consideration the need of all stakeholders involved.
