Metrohm and FOSS Enter Strategic Alliance


Metrohm and FOSS have entered into a strategic alliance in which Metrohm will become the sole global distributor of FOSS NIR instruments for the chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and environmental sectors.

“Metrohm will extend its product offering beyond the company’s traditional focus on solutions for wet-chemistry analytical techniques thereby benefiting our customers with new possibilities both in laboratory and process analysis,” said Christoph Fässler, CEO of Metrohm in a company statement.

FOSS will continue its R&D program within NIR technology and manufacturing for both companies and will focus its NIR business on the food and agricultural industries, according to a joint company statement.

Under the deal, FOSS NIRSystems, Inc., based in Laurel, MD, USA, will become a division of Metrohm USA to be named Metrohm NIRSystems. The global NIR instrument business for these sectors will continue to be run by the Metrohm NIRSystems division of Metrohm USA.
