Petrotest becomes part of Anton Paar

2013-07-01 | Corporate

“Petrotest’s products are an ideal complement to Anton Paar’s product portfolio. The combination of existing technologies from both companies results in a promising synergy effect and allows the development of new measuring instruments. Our strategic aim is clear: by providing a comprehensive range of measuring instruments for laboratories in the oil industry we want to become the preferred partner of our customers in a wider field”, says Dr. Friedrich Santner, CEO of Anton Paar GmbH.

Anton Paar has acquired the Petrotest Group as of March 1, 2012. This acquisition brings two longstanding companies together: Petrotest was established in 1873 by Berthold Pensky, the inventor of the Pensky-Martens method. Petrotest has therefore been serving the petrochemical industry for nearly 140 years.

With Anton Paar’s dense network of sales partners and 20 subsidiaries around the world, Petrotest customers will now benefit from the renowned high quality of Anton Paar's service and support. After-sales services range from on-site product training, customer-specific seminars, application support, method development, the provision of certified reference materials and maintenance contracts.

The successful integration of Petrotest into the Anton Paar Group finds its expression in the change of the company name from Petrotest GmbH to Anton Paar ProveTec GmbH. The expanded portfolio consolidates Anton Paar’s position on the market and forms a strong base for future innovations.
