BÜCHI acquires NIR-Online

BÜCHI Labortechnik AG is one of the leading manufacturers for sample preparation, particle formation, wet chemistry and analytical instrumentation for R&D and Quality Control (QC).

NIR-Online GmbH’s core competence is the development of online NIR and vision system solutions for process optimization in a wide range of industrial applications.

BUCHI’s CEO Thomas Liner comments “The combination of both companies is a perfect strategic fit for both partners. For BUCHI this acquisition is an important milestone in expanding our portfolio of technologies from the laboratory into the process environment."

Liner further says "We have been compelled by this opportunity since our customers are increasingly seeking solutions which allow them to acquire analytical data continuously and in real time in order to optimize their product quality and overall manufacturing efficiency."

The BUCHI CEO also pointed out that adding the NIR-Online technology to the product portfolio enables BUCHI to offer comprehensive solutions to customers along their entire value chain.

The founders of NIR-Online Thomas Schneider and Thomas Qvarfort add “We are convinced that this move offers nothing but opportunity for both companies and their customers. The combination with BUCHI represents a breakthrough for us in terms of enhancing our global sales and support coverage. Also, we see significant synergies with BUCHI’s laboratory solutions. Together we will be able to serve our mutual customers even better in achieving their goals.”

BUCHI has announced that NIR-Online GmbH will remain in Walldorf, Germany and will continue to develop, distribute and support its process NIR and vision system solutions. 
The two founders Tomas Qvarfort and Thomas Schneider will remain members of the management team. Christian Lehmann has been appointed Managing Director of NIR-Online GmbH.
