SSI will sell Restek consumables throughout its geographic territory, which includes the US, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Jonathan Edwardsen, consumables product manager at SSI, said being part of the Restek distribution network will present opportunities.
“Restek is one of the industry’s leaders in providing high-end, trusted consumables to customers, including Shimadzu, throughout the world. Their level of service and attention to detail mirrors that of Shimadzu, which makes this partnership a win for our customers.”
SSI will sell Restek’s line of chromatography supplies and accessories including HPLC and GC columns and column hardware, valves, syringes, septa, and vials as well as reference standards.
The pair said it will allow customers to simplify purchasing logistics by being able to source a range of consumables from one vendor.
Rob Freeman of Restek said the firms have developed a strong working relationship over the years.
“Entering this agreement signifies our shared values and will further enhance the valued relationship we have built with Shimadzu, one of the leading brands in the analytical instruments industry.”
