Techcomp Instruments Limited (TIL) is pleased to announce that on 15 April, 2021 SCION Instruments NL BV (“Scion Instruments”), agreed to acquire the Teledyne Tekmar Headspace product Lines HT3 and Versa from Teledyne Instruments, INC.
Both parties have started work on the transfer of the production of the Teledyne Headspace systems from the Teledyne Ohio facility to SCION Instruments Production facility in Goes, the Netherlands which will take about 4 months and is scheduled to be completed by 1st of September 2021. At the end of this process, SCION Instruments will be able to provide its customers with market leading, SCION branded Headspace systems.
As part of the agreement, SCION Instruments has assumed immediate responsibility for the global supply of spare parts and technical and commercial support for the two Headspace products. USA customers with existing Teledyne service contracts will continue to receive service from Teledyne Tekmar for the duration of their contract. Scion Instruments has a large existing install base in the USA and is strengthening its service team to meet customer expectations going forward as well as opening a new office in Maryland in June 2021.
This acquisition is a key milestone as SCION Instruments realises its strategy to provide world class products, enhanced by fully automated sample introduction systems that allows SCION Instruments to follow the growth and strategy to provide our customers with a full range of instrumentations and applications.
This acquisition will increase SCION Instruments and Techcomp presence in the analytical Chromatography market and allows SCION Instruments to respond to the growing need for increasingly complex applications and analysis using the latest generation of sample introduction systems.
