Trajan Scientific and Medical announces the completion to acquire 100% of Chromatography Research Supplies, Inc. (CRS), a leading global manufacturer of high-quality analytical consumables based in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.
CRS is considered industry best practice in both product performance and fabrication capabilities of electronic and manual crimping tools, gas filters, ferrules, GC septa, and well plates. Its products are used in analytical laboratories and other industries worldwide, where they are known for quality, ease of use and high levels of support.
The acquisition is highly complementary to Trajan’s product portfolio in the analytical workflow and consolidates Trajan’s current market-leading position in gas chromatography sample introduction.
CRS joins the Trajan team with a strong development and production engineering team, exceptional customer service and quality offering, with Trajan looking to leverage this skillset across other operational centers.
Stephen Tomisich, CEO and Managing Director of Trajan said: “We welcome the CRS team to Trajan. We have partnered with CRS for many years and have a deep understanding of their business and look forward to working closely with the team in this chapter of our respective histories.”
For over 25 years CRS has been led by Glenn Thomas (owner) and Debbie Clark (VP). The acquisition sees Glenn move into retirement and Debbie continuing to manage the Louisville site, reporting to Kayte Parlevliet (General Manager Separation Science Business Unit, Trajan).
Debbie Clark said: “CRS and Trajan are a natural fit through product offerings as well as a company vision that places value on our employees and strives to leave the world in a better place than when we found it. The team is excited for the future and to move forward now as Trajan Louisville”.
