HORIBA consolidates its U.S. operations

6 Январь 2012 г.


In January, 2012, HORIBA, Ltd. announced the restructuring of the U.S. subsidiaries, including the merger of 4 U.S. subsidiaries to HORIBA International Corporation’s affiliate, HORIBA Instruments Incorporated which is expected to aggregate the U.S. business structure. This facilitates the business performance and provides further competitive edge in sales in North America which has the largest analytical and measurement system’s market.

HORIBA International Corporation acquired 100% ownership of Brazil's subsidiary of HORIBA ABX SAS (France), active in the Medical-Diagnostic market. HORIBA has been the industry leader in the sales of small and medium-sized blood cell counters in Brazil and accelerated the expansion of their business by promoting the sales of reagents for clinical tests. In addition to the current success in the medical instruments field, the unification of Brazil and North America’s business sets the foundation for the highly anticipated full-scale business expansion of Automotive Test Systems and Scientific Instruments and Systems segment in the near future.
