Malvern Instruments, Netzsch Sign Agreement to Cooperate
Materials and biophysical characterization company Malvern Instruments and Netzsch Grinding & Dispersing (headquartered in Selb, Germany), a worldwide manufacturer of industrial wet and dry grinding, mixing, dispersing and kneading equipment, have entered into a cooperative marketing agreement.
Under the terms of the agreement, initially in place for three years, Netzsch will standardize on Malvern's particle sizing and characterization equipment, primarily the Mastersizer 3000 laser diffraction particle size analyzer.
Initially, Malvern Mastersizer 3000 systems will be installed in Netzsch demonstration and test laboratories in key territories around the world - Germany, USA, Brazil, China, Korea, India and Russia. All trials, demonstrations and toll-production carried out by Netzsch on customers' materials in Netzsch facilities will be routinely tested using Malvern instrumentation, with Malvern's applications experts in each territory available to support the understanding and interpretation of data, as required. Jointly organized seminars and other initiatives will be targeted at key market sectors to deliver valuable information and support to customers and potential customers of either or both companies.
