Building on a decade of successful business in North America, powder characterization specialist Freeman Technology has announced that in January 2012 the company formally established a U.S. subsidiary, Freeman Technology Inc.
This new organization will take on responsibility for sales, service, and applications support for FT4 powder rheometer users in the U.S., and will work with prospective customers across all industrial markets. Concurrent with this, the appointment of Mike Delancy as national sales specialist adds a wealth of commercial and rheological applications experience to the established Freeman Technology team.
Delancy joins Freeman Technology Inc. from a leading fluids rheology instrumentation company. He has more than 25 years experience in rheology and thermal analysis instrumentation, supporting customers in pharmaceuticals, polymers, food, consumer products, and biotechnology markets.
“Freeman Technology has been operating in the U.S. for a number of years, principally from our UK office but with dedicated local support,” said Tim Freeman, managing director of Freeman Technology. “The formal creation of a U.S. subsidiary has been something we have been working towards for some time, so we are extremely excited to have reached this point. I’d like to welcome Mike Delancy and also thank all of our U.S. customers and colleagues for their support over the years.”
Sales of the powder rheometer have grown year on year since the instrument’s introduction over 10 years ago, with North America an increasingly active market in the pharmaceutical and other powder processing sectors. “I know from the surveys we do that our customers in North America have always been happy with the support we provide,” said Freeman, “but building a direct operation will enable us to improve this even further and bring the benefits of the FT4 powder rheometer to a wider audience.”
