Agilent Technologies Inc. (Santa Clara, California) and ABC Instrumentación Analítica (ABCIA) (Mexico City, Mexico) have signed a definitive agreement for Agilent to acquire assets from ABCIA. Privately held ABCIA is a distributor of analytical solutions, including Agilent’s chemical analysis and life science products.
The acquisition is expected to be completed on October 1. Once completed, former ABCIA customers in Mexico will have access to an integrated sales and service portfolio directly from Agilent.
ABCIA provides sales, application support, and customer training for Agilent products such as gas and liquid chromatographs, mass spectrometers, atomic and molecular spectroscopy systems, and bioanalysers.
Agilent and ABCIA have been partners for more than two decades. About 30 ABCIA employees are expected to transfer to Agilent when the acquisition is final.
