UK’s Scientific Measurements completes acquisition of Ireland’s Eurolec Instrumentation Ltd
18 May 2017
Global instrumentation leaders Scientific Measurements Pte Ltd has acquired Ireland-based Eurolec Instrumentation Ltd for an undisclosed sum.
Scientific Measurements – parent company to Cirrus Research and Acoustic Instruments International – has more than 40 years’ experience in the sector and counts product ranges Optimus, Revo, doseBadge, Trojan and Invictus among its industry-leading brands.
Eurolec as a brand and trading name will continue within the Scientific Measurement fold, with the existing head office remaining in Dundalk, County Louth. Its chain of distributors will also be unaffected.
Coinciding with the handover, Eurolec founder and Managing Director Tom Mears will be retiring after a five-decade career in the sector and 19 years since establishing the company. Chris Mears has been appointed the new MD, formerly heading up the company’s sales & marketing. The rest of the Eurolec team will remain unchanged by the buy-out.
Moving forwarding, product enhancement and development are a key priority for the new owners and its experienced marketing team will begin work on an updated website for its newest subsidiary.
“This is a new chapter for the company but we have inherited a strong legacy from Tom and a great platform to build upon,” said Daren Wallis, Scientific Measurements Director.
“Scientific Measurements as a company has an unrivalled track record of innovation and product development and we want to put that experience into play with Eurolec’s temperature and pressure gauge products. The ranges are an ideal fit for our current product portfolio and the Eurolec team will be able to enjoy the added benefits of our R&D and global sales & marketing team behind them.”
