In response to changes in the ownership structure of the company and the successful expansion of its business operation, MEP Instruments will change its name to Metrohm Australia and Metrohm New Zealand.
Effective 1 January 2018, the distributor of analytical technology solutions will be operating under the name of Metrohm, its sole parent company.
The change shall reflect the close integration of the Australian and New Zealand operation under the global Metrohm brand. Metrohm is a global leader in the fields of titration and voltammetry and an innovator in ion chromatography, online analysis and laboratory automation, as well as NIR and Raman spectroscopy and electrochemical solutions for research and training.
MEP Instruments Australia and New Zealand was established by Metrohm Switzerland together with Anton Paar Austria nearly 20 years ago to strengthen support and service for their customer base in these countries. The success over the past years and the enthusiastic acceptance by the scientific community in the region have led to the decision to change the name to Metrohm to reflect the commitment to the growing customer base in the region and to establish Anton Paar Australia and New Zealand as a separate entity.
Along with the name change, the company will adopt the corporate identity, including logo and visual identity, of parent company Metrohm AG. The changes will be effective 1 January 2018, from which date business activities will be undertaken with the new corporate name. All MEP/Metrohm office addresses and phone numbers will remain the same across Australia and New Zealand.
