Malvern Instruments and Sysmex Corp. have enjoyed a long and successful association in Japan, where Sysmex has been Malvern’s exclusive distributor for the company’s particle characterization systems since 1998.
“I’d like to pay tribute and extend my sincere thanks to the whole team at Sysmex, who have provided incredibly loyal support to Malvern and our products for more than a decade,” said Paul Walker, managing director of Malvern Instruments. “In recent years our business has grown substantially and our product and technology portfolios have undergone considerable diversification. As the market in Japan continues to mature, it makes sound business sense for us to further extend our direct operation and to manage our particle characterization business through a single organization, as we do elsewhere.”
Hisashi Ietsugu, president and CEO of Sysmex Corp., is looking forward to a continuing collaboration with Malvern in the bioscience arena. “Sysmex and Malvern have enjoyed more than 10 years of fruitful business collaboration, a period in which there have been considerable developments in the market,” he said. “Following a recent strategic review, we decided it was in the best interests of both companies to transfer the industrial sales and support activities to Malvern. I am very pleased, however, that we will continue our partnership in developing particle characterization instruments for the bio-science community, a very exciting area for future development.”
