Anton Paar Acquires Swiss Company CSM Instruments SA

Published December 6, 2013
 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. Customers include those in academic research, the automobile industry, the field of environmental technology, life sciences and among tool manufacturers.

The addition of CSM Instruments to the Anton Paar product portfolio provides an excellent complement. Friedrich Santner, CEO of the Anton Paar GmbH says, "Both companies have expert knowledge which has been built up over several decades and longstanding experience in the development and manufacture of precise high-tech measuring instruments. 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."

Jacques Francoise, former General Manager of CSM Instruments further commented, “Anton Paar, which is known for its strong corporate culture, with an employee-oriented attitude and its excellent product portfolio, will consolidate the future of CSM Instruments in the Neuchâtel area on a long-term basis.”

Anton Paar is the world leader in the field of density and concentration measurement, the determination of dissolved CO2, rheology and the material characterization of surfaces. With now 21 subsidiaries worldwide, Anton Paar develops highly accurate laboratory instruments, process measuring instrumentation and custom-tailored automation and robotics solutions for quality control.
