The Gasmet Technologies Oy (Helsinki, Finland), one of the world’s leading manufacturers of gas monitoring equipment, has today announced the acquisition of Quantitech Limited (Milton Keynes, UK).  Gasmet’s products are employed globally in regulatory monitoring, process control and environmental/safety applications, and Quantitech has been its sales and service partner in the UK and Ireland since 1995.

“Quantitech has an excellent reputation and has established a comprehensive customer base, and with the retirement of the current owner, this acquisition is designed to secure the long-term future of the business and to exploit the growth opportunities that we see in the UK market,” comments Mikko Ahro, CEO Gasmet Technologies Oy.

Established in 1983, Quantitech represents a small number of leading global manufacturers including Gasmet. Providing advanced environmental and process monitoring instrumentation in the UK and Ireland, the company’s success is built upon the quality of the products and customised systems that it is able to offer, coupled with outstanding levels of service.

Following the acquisition, Quantitech will remain at their Milton Keynes location, trading under the same name and continuing to supply the same range of products. Looking forward, Mikko Ahro says: “We believe there are significant growth opportunities for FTIR analyzers in the UK, so it is our intention to strengthen the resources at Quantitech to further improve the experience and expertise that drive the company’s high levels of customer support.”
