On 1 January 2020 the companies RETSCH Technology GmbH, Microtrac GmbH and BEL Europe GmbH have merged to become the new Microtrac Retsch GmbH. This new constellation allows users of particle characterization in the EMEA region to access the broadest product portfolio worldwide from one single source. Under the brand name Microtrac MRB the company provides systems for particle characterization by Laser Diffraction, Dynamic Light Scattering, Dynamic & Static Image Analysis, as well as Gas Adsorption Measurement to determine the specific surface and pore size distributions.
RETSCH Technology has been part of the VERDER Group since its foundation in 1998 and has revolutionized the market for particle characterization with Dynamic Image Analysis by developing the dual camera technology implemented in the CAMSIZER series.
The manufacturing companies Microtrac Inc. (USA) and MicrotracBEL (Japan) were acquired by VERDER in July 2019. Thus, a new global player has formed under the roof of the VERDER Group who aims to become a technological leader in particle characterization.
Gerhard Raatz, Sales Director of Microtrac RETSCH, looks optimistically into the future: “By merging our companies we can now leverage our combined capabilities, along with our business and customer relationships and profit from synergetic effects. With our comprehensive product range, we strengthen our global position as an innovative and trustworthy partner for our customers.”
The headquarters of Microtrac Retsch GmbH are located in Haan near Duesseldorf/Germany, on the premises of the VERDER SCIENTIFIC Division. The companies RETSCH, Carbolite Gero, Eltra, ATM and Qness are also part of this Division.
