Panalytical has direct sales and support in Mexico
Supplier of analytical instrumentation and software for X-ray diffraction and fluorescence spectrometry now conducts its business in Mexico directly under the aegis of Spectris Mexico
Pona and Panalytical have worked together over the past 13 years.
Throughout this time the two companies have enjoyed a special relationship, with Pona concentrating, among other products on Panalytical business.
The strength of this association is reflected in the new organization with all Pona employees joining Panalytical Mexico.
An agreement stipulating the transfer of all Panalytical business from Pona to the newly set up organisation was signed by Polo Navarro, president of Pona, and Gjalt Kuiperes, regional director Americas of Panalytical, Oct 20, 2006.
Gjalt Kuiperes commented: "with this merger of two long lasting partners Panalytical will be able to offer the best of two worlds to its existing and potential customer base in Mexico.
"With all Pona employees joining the new Panalytical Mexico team we will have a seemless transfer even to the extent of continuing the telephone numbers".
The change in organisation follows years of rapid growth in Panalytical's business in Mexico: the company's traditional business areas of research and industry, as well as the cement, steel, petrochemical and semiconductor sectors, have been extremely active.
Panalytical's product portfolio includes a broad range of XRD and XRF systems and software widely used for the analysis and materials characterisation of products such as cement, metals and steel, nanomaterials, plastics, polymers and petrochemicals, industrial minerals, glass, catalysts, semiconductors, thin films and advanced materials, pharmaceutical solids, recycled materials and environmental samples.
