AGC Instruments was originally established in July 1965 to manufacture Detectors (TCD) and entry level Gas Chromatographs for the European Market. Through natural development, the company extended these products into complete Gas Chromatograph and Gas Analyser Solutions to meet the need of an expanding market sector.
Following a management buyout in 2006, the company embarked upon an expansion process which culminated in the acquisition of a new Headquarters in 2010 in a purpose-built, state of the art facility. This brand new factory, overlooking Shannon International Airport, offers all year round accessibility for customers worldwide. With all Manufacturing and R & D all under one roof, it has enabled the company to focus on new product lines and new applications. One year previously in 2009, the AGC Instruments China Sales & Support Office was established and has now resulted in increasing market share and a long term commitment to customers.
With a product portfolio ranging from Gas Chromatographs to Modified Atmosphere Packaging food gas analysers, AGC manufactures Gas Analysis Solutions to all users requiring a Quality Control or identification of their gas stream. A strong Research & Development focus lead to the launch of exciting new product ranges such as the NovaCHROM Online Gas Chromatographs and NovaPRO Process Gas Chromatographs. Using the abundant experience of skilled engineers and a deep-rooted detector manufacturing knowledge, AGC can provide analytical solutions and systems that are easy to use and understand. The variety of detectors available can be customised to measure unique gas streams and an emphasis is placed on the continuous development of all analytical solutions. This allows AGC to provide guaranteed applications for a broad range of industrial analytical needs.
AGC Instruments operates a customer-focused approach through a world-wide sales and service network lead by owner-run companies. All distributors are extremely experienced and factory trained to the highest standards, offering customers a complete after sales support service. This worldwide reach with strategic partners ensures that customers have peace of mind and after sales care that are important to their operations.
The future is bright for AGC Instruments as the investment in Research and Development has lead to an expanding production schedule. As a result, more and more industrial installations globally have AGC products at the core of their quality control processes.
