Micromeritics Instrument Corp acquires Freeman Technology

June 20, 2018

Micromeritics Instrument Corporation, Norcross, Georgia, USA, a manufacturer of products for advanced materials characterisation, has announced its acquisition of Freeman Technology, Tewkesbury, UK. Freeman specialises in providing instruments for the measurement of powder flow and other behavioural properties to maximise process and product understanding, accelerate R&D toward formulation and commercialisation and optimise powder processes.

“The acquisition of Freeman Technology is very strategic to the growth of Micromeritics,” commented Preston Hendrix, President of Micromeritics. “Not only does it expand our portfolio of products and solutions in high-growth market segments where we are already active and have a large, global base of customers, but Freeman Technology’s strong scientific and applications focus is very much in line with the pre- and post-sales support customers have come to expect from Micromeritics.”

Tim Freeman, Managing Director of Freeman Technology stated, “We are excited about joining forces with and becoming a Micromeritics company, as they have penetration in complementary segments, global market coverage and the infrastructure to help us to accelerate the growth we have established in our business since 1995.”

Micromeritics offerings include techniques for characterisation of the density/volume, surface area and porosity, physical and chemical absorption, size and shape of particles, porous materials and powders. In addition to designing, building and selling its own instrumentation, Micromeritics also offers complimentary OEM and private label instruments under its Particulate Systems brand, through the Micromeritics global sales channel and distributor partners.

The company also operates testing, certification and methods development laboratories under the Particle Testing Authority and PoroTechnology brands in Asia, the Americas and Europe.
