Metrohm has established itself in the competitive analytical instruments sector and has continually extended its position. We are the market leader in the fields of titration and voltammetry, in the ion chromatography sector we are a very strong number two. The company is owned by the Metrohm foundation, whose purpose is to keep the company independent, to provide employment to local people and to support causes of public interest in our area.

The company is owned by the Metrohm foundation, whose purpose is to keep the company independent, to provide employment to local people and to support causes of public interest in our area.

The Metrohm Group includes more than 30 subsidiaries or joint venture companies covering 47 countries that account for more than two thirds of total sales and employ well over 1150 people. Metrohm's North American market is taken care of by Brinkmann Instruments, Westbury NY, and Metrohm Peak, Houston TX.

Metrohm Ltd. is the only company providing practically all the relevant ion analysis technologies under one roof: potentiometric and Karl Fischer titration, voltammetry and ion chromatography. These do not compete with each other but are complementary techniques. In addition, Metrohm produces pH, ion and conductivity meters, stability measuring instruments, software and peripheral units as well as a full range of dosing and liquid handling products plus sensors for all kinds of applications.

Congratulations to LCGC on 25 years!
