Malvern and Panalytical Open New US Headquarters

On 23 May 2008, the Panalytical and Malvern Panalytical US teams celebrated the opening of their new headquarters. The sister companies now share state of the art facilities in Westborough, MA.



Gjalt Kuipers and Brian Dutko, general managers of Panalytical and Malvern Panalytical's US companies respectively, led the day of celebrations following the ribbon cutting ceremony. The expansion into the new premises comes at a time of sustained business growth for both companies.

"As well as growing our business across the Americas, we have consolidated former east and west coast sites and have relocated our warehouse to Westborough," said Peter van Velzen, managing director of Panalytical . "Importantly, the move has also given us the freedom to expand our application laboratories. These now include a cleanroom for wafer analyzers, a sample prep room, and large application labs for XRD and XRF. As well as Panalytical's extensive range of X-ray analysis products, in the labs there is an optical emission spectrometer from OBLF, for which Panalytical is the exclusive distributor in the USA and Brazil. With more spacious training facilities we can now offer a greater number of in-house courses to our customers."

Malvern Panalytical has similarly expanded its applications and training facilities. Managing director Paul Walker commented: "This move reflects the continued growth and success of the company, and also the expansion of the business in recent years to encompass a broadening range of technologies and instrumentation for materials characterization. These new premises provide the infrastructure and facilities to underpin our future."

Cutting the ribbon was John O'Higgins, chief executive of parent company Spectris plc. Alongside were Jim Webster, business group director at Spectris with Peter van Velzen, managing director of Panalytical (Almelo, The Netherlands) and Paul Walker, managing director of Malvern Panalytical (Malvern Panalytical, UK).
