Netzsch Acquires Bruker’s Japanese Thermal Analysis Instruments Business
The Netzsch Analyzing & Testing division and Bruker Corp. recently announced that Netzsch Japan K.K. has acquired Bruker’s Thermal Analysis instruments business in Japan. Together with the international Netzsch group, Netzsch Japan will develop, produce, distribute, and service the existing and new thermal analysis product lines.
In Japan, Netzsch has been distributing its thermal analysis instruments via Bruker AXS K.K., headquartered in Yokohama. Bruker has distributed Netzsch Thermal Analysis products in Japan in parallel with Bruker’s routine thermal analysis product line.
“We are convinced that having a large R&D and production site that understands the needs of the Japanese market is an excellent way to further develop our future business in Japan,” said Yoshio Shinoda, president of Netzsch Japan K.K. “With an additional 30 employees joining us from Bruker, Netzsch can now serve our Japanese customers even better, and we will further improve our outstanding reputation as the performance leader in Thermal Analysis instrumentation. This will boost the success that Netzsch has had in recent years in the Asia-Pacific region.”
