Malvern Instruments Opens New Applications Laboratory in São Paulo, Brazil

- Located at São Paulo facility of Malvern’s parent company Spectris
- Valuable resource for the company’s dealer in the region, Altmann SA

14 December 2012 - Malvern Instruments has opened a new applications and demonstration laboratory in Brazil in support of continued, strong business growth in South America. Located at the São Paulo facility of Malvern’s parent company Spectris, the new laboratory will provide pre- and post-sales support to customers across all of Malvern’s technology areas, and will augment established particle characterization demonstration labs elsewhere in Brazil. 

The new laboratory will be equipped with instruments spanning Malvern’s entire range of particle characterization, protein measurement and rheology systems and will be a highly valuable resource for the company’s dealer in the region, Altmann SA.

Edna Alvarez, Latin America Sales Manager for Malvern, said, “I am delighted that Malvern has been able to set up such an excellent laboratory facility and very much look forward to welcoming customers from Brazil and elsewhere in South America. We have long enjoyed a very successful relationship with Altmann SA, our dealer in Brazil, and I am especially pleased to be providing them with access to further local demonstration, technical and applications support.” 

Strong customer relationships and exceptional service are at the heart of Malvern’s business and the company strives to deliver the same service excellence the world over. The establishment of this new laboratory in São Paulo follows the opening in March this year of a brand new Malvern facility in Houston, Texas, which not only serves customers in the USA but supports some of the emerging markets in Latin America. 

We have a deep commitment to South America and to ensuring that all our customers there get the most out of their investment in a Malvern instrument,” said Brian Dutko, President of The Americas Operations for Malvern. “With excellent distribution partners on the ground and especially strong growth in countries like Brazil we want to lead the market in delivering the best possible customer experience for what are world-leading materials characterization systems.” 

Malvern’s materials characterization technology and expertise enables scientists and engineers to understand and control the properties of dispersed systems. Headquartered in Malvern, UK, Malvern Instruments has subsidiary organizations in all major European markets, North America, China, Korea and Japan, a joint venture in India, a global distributor network and applications laboratories around the world.
