Verder Scientific GmbH & Co. KG, Haan, Germany, a division of the Verder Group, has agreed to acquire all the shares of US-based Mager Scientific Inc., Dexter, Michigan, a distributor of metallographic and hardness testing equipment in the USA, including the QATM product lines for metallographic preparation and hardness testing.

The acquisition is said to be based on a long-standing successful cooperation between the two companies and is expected to greatly improve Verder Scientific’s impact on the US market.

Mager Scientific offers customers a full range of material testing solutions and consumables. In addition to comprehensive product and application know-how, the company will provide Verder Scientific with direct access to this important customer segment.

For Verder Scientific’s US entity, Verder Scientific Inc. based in Newtown, Pennsylvania, the acquisition of Mager Scientific provides an opportunity to merge sales channels and benefit from each other’s contacts. QATM will gain direct access to their US customer base to guarantee perfect customer service.

Together with the Mager business, Verder Scientific Inc aims to become a major player in the distribution of quality control equipment, with annual sales of approximately $35 million. The new setup is expected to allow Verder Scientific to close more strategic deals with key accounts in the world’s largest economy and to fully exploit the synergies between the brands.
