Techcomp Europe Acquires Majority Shareholding in Mass Spectrometer Manufacturer, Isotopx Limited
Techcomp Instruments Limited (“Techcomp”) is delighted to announce that Techcomp Europe has successfully completed the acquisition of a majority shareholding in Isotopx Limited, based in Middlewich, Cheshire.
For the past 13 years Isotopx has been at the forefront of mass spectrometer design and innovation. The whole team at Isotopx, led by CEO and founder Zenon Palacz, are justifiably proud of their achievements in providing their customers with the most advanced and reliable instrumentation available and of their well-deserved reputation for excellent service, advice and application support.
Mark Yardley, a co-founder of the business, will be retiring as a director of Isotopx while Zenon Palacz will remain as CEO and a significant shareholder.
This acquisition is a key milestone as Techcomp realises its strategy to provide a broad portfolio of innovative scientific instruments to the world’s leading universities and research institutes. With the support of Techcomp, Isotopx will continue to innovate and produce Thermal Ionisation and Noble Gas mass spectrometers, as well as introducing new products to the market in the years ahead. Isotopx will also take advantage of the Techcomp marketing and distribution network to expand its worldwide activities and make its growing range of products available to a wider customer base.
Zenon Palacz, CEO and founder Isotopx said “We are really looking forward to working with Techcomp to grow our business together. The next few years promise to be an exciting period for us as we build on the success of the ATONA Amplifier and bring exciting new products to market. The culture at Techcomp is a good match with Isotopx, where innovation and cutting-edge technology are at the heart of everything we do.”
