Anton Paar GmbH purchased the Swiss company CSM Instruments SA. CSM Instruments SA will continue under the name "CSM Instruments SA | A company of Anton Paar" at the present location in Peseux, Switzerland.
For the past 30 years CSM Instruments has developed, produced and sold laboratory instruments for the characterization of mechanical properties on material surfaces at the micro- and nano-scales.

The addition of CSM Instruments to the Anton Paar product portfolio provides an excellent complement.

We complement each other, for example in the fields of material characterization and tribometry. The acquisition of CSM Instruments results in an excellent extension of our product portfolio."
