Malvern Instruments Japan was established in February 2003 to manage Malvern’s process business in the region and the newly expanded organisation will deliver direct sales, technical and applications support across the company’s particle characterization systems.

This follows an agreement with Sysmex Corporation, who previously distributed Malvern’s laboratory-based particle characterization systems in Japan, to transfer responsibility directly to Malvern. The two companies have also signed an exclusive distribution agreement for the Sysmex FPIA particle characterization instrument, which will make Malvern the worldwide distributor including Japan.
