Micromeritics Announces Formation of Japanese Subsidiary

October 7, 2010
Micromeritics Instrument Corp., an industry leader in materials characterization, has announced the formation of its new Japan subsidiary headquartered in the Chiba prefecture. Micromeritics Japan G.K. was formed in March and has commenced commercial operations from its Chiba office located in Tokatsu Techno Plaza as of September 1.

This subsidiary’s primary goal is to deliver service and customer support for Micromeritics’ entire line of physical adsorption, chemisorption, high-pressure sorption, density, porosimetry, and particle size instrumentation to its Japanese customers. Chemisorption, high pressure sorption, and particle size product lines will be sold directly in Japan by Micromeritics Japan, who will also be responsible for applications support and service. In addition, this subsidiary will provide support to Shimadzu Corp., Kyoto, who will continue to represent Micromeritics porosimetry, physical absorption, and density products.

“The establishment of Micromeritics Japan will provide service and support for our current customers, new customers, and Shimadzu Corp.’s Testing Machines Business Unit,” said Preston Hendrix, president of Micromeritics. “Due to our 40-year relationship with Shimadzu Corp., Japan has a large installed base of Micromeritics instrumentation. Our subsidiary will help Micromeritics to build new customer relationships and strengthen established ones. We are enthusiastic about the prospect of working directly with our customers and providing Shimadzu with additional support. Micromeritics is committed to bringing an exceptional ‘customer experience’ to our Japanese market.”

Micromeritics Japan plans to expand its operation over the next few years as it increases its capabilities to serve customers. For more information, visit www.Microjp.com.
