Intertek Group Selects PerkinElmer as a Preferred Global Vendor for Instrumentation Technologies
News Jan 21, 2009
PerkinElmer, Inc. has announced that Intertek Group plc has selected PerkinElmer as its preferred vendor for the majority of its instrumentation requirements. Under the agreement, PerkinElmer’s instrumentation will be considered at over 1000 Intertek sites worldwide.
“As an organization focused on providing professionalism and high quality service to our clients globally, we are confident that PerkinElmer instruments will consistently perform at the level that our laboratories require,” said Brent Mackin, vice president for Laboratory Services, Intertek Oil, Chemical and Agri Division. “PerkinElmer has also consistently delivered an equally high level of service and technical support for our evolving needs, and we look forward to furthering this successful relationship.”
The preferred vendor agreement, which covers all PerkinElmer analytical instrumentation and related reagents, will streamline the Intertek purchasing process for PerkinElmer products worldwide and is expected to be valued at several million dollars.
Intertek provides laboratory testing, consulting, cargo inspection and certification services for industries from specialty chemicals and petroleum products to consumer products and pharmaceuticals. Its laboratories employ multiple technologies, including Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP), Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) and UV/Visible Spectroscopy – applications, which require high-performance instrumentation; such as PerkinElmer’s Optima™ ICP-OES, AAnalyst™ atomic absorption systems and LAMBDATM UV/Vis families.
One key benefit of the agreement is the potential for standardization of laboratory equipment and procedures throughout Intertek’s laboratory locations, thereby minimizing transition times as laboratory staff moves across sites, domestically or internationally. The agreement also allows Intertek’s laboratory managers to focus on core business functions rather than expending resources on multiple purchase negotiations.
“Intertek’s performance record has established it as a market leader in laboratory outsourcing in the oil and chemical sectors, which provides PerkinElmer an opportunity to grow as a strategic partner as well,” said Richard Begley, Ph.D., president, PerkinElmer Analytical Sciences, PerkinElmer.
