Analox Distributor Gem Scientific Expands with Acquisition of Northern Balance
Analox Sensor Technology is delighted that one of their UK-based distributors is growing stronger with the acquisition of a weighing specialist company.
Yorkshire-based Gem Scientific acquired balance and scales specialist Northern Balance at the end of 2016. The company is a leading independent UKAS accredited balance and scales specialist, providing core solutions for the supply, service, calibration and repair of weighing equipment.
This was the second acquisition of 2016 for Gem Scientific, with them acquiring Yorkshire Scientific Instruments earlier in the year.
Justin Welton, Managing Director of Gem Scientific said: “The acquisition furthers our growth strategy in the UK and marks another significant step forward for Gem Scientific.”
Matt Lambert, Regional Account Manager for Analox Sensor Technology said: “2016 was a very exciting year for Gem Scientific. Not only did they acquire two new businesses and expanded their reach, but they also launched a brand new website. It’s always great to hear success stories like these from our distributors and we’re looking forward to seeing what 2017 has in store.”
