Today, Ellab announces the acquisition of Instrument Technology Limited (ITL), an Irish company specialized in the supply of instrumentation products and services to the life science industry.
ITL has since 1985 offered high-quality services and has a proven track-record of representing some of the market’s leading manufacturers of process, calibration and validation instruments. The company’s customer base includes leading players within the life science industry.
As a distributor for Hanwell (an Ellab company) for the last 20 years, ITL has also become a leading supplier of environmental monitoring systems in Ireland. The ambition is to improve this position further with the full portfolio of Ellab’s products and services.
The acquisition of ITL fits with Ellab’s corporate strategy of expanding its direct geographical presence in key markets while assuring the best service to its customers. In line with this strategy, ITL is expected to serve Ellab’s Irish customers even better through its strong local platform and direct market presence.
The technical director of ITL, Peter Keane, will continue to be responsible for ITL’s activities.
Ellab is a leading global provider of solutions and services for validating, measuring, recording, and monitoring critical parameters of thermal applications. In September 2019, Ellab was acquired by the EQT Mid Market Europe Fund (“EQT”).
