Edinburgh Instruments announces opening of USA operations

Date Announced: 05 Sep 2014

Livingston, UK - Edinburgh Instruments is pleased to announce that it is expanding its US presence with the addition of direct sales support within the USA, which complements the existing technical support already established. This will help serve the growing demand for its range of fluorescence spectrometers that include the FLS980 research grade fluorescence spectrometer, the new FS5 spectrofluorometer (pictured) and high performance Laser Flash Photolysis product range.

Mark Vosloo, CEO of Edinburgh Instruments commented, “Our FS5 Spectrofluorometer is taking the market by storm across Asia, and we are seeing more traction on the ground in the USA than ever before. Increased demand for high performance fluorescence spectrometers continues, in fact, we don’t anticipate this slowing down. Our customers value both our high quality products and our highly skilled in-house technical sales and operations team. Providing the right technical information before a customer decides to purchase our products and on-going support after purchase is just a part of what we offer our customers.”

Edinburgh Instruments was formed in 1971 and has since grown from strength to strength. The company has built an enviable reputation across Europe and Asia as one of the best suppliers of high performance, high quality fluorescence spectrometers and gas lasers. The marked increase in interest across the USA in both academic and commercial markets has now led the company to recruit a growing team within the territory to work closely with customers and ensure its local support both technically and commercially.
