Olympus to Acquire Optical Analysis's Microscope Business
“We are delighted to be able to serve customers in these key areas with Olympus’ special combination of excellent products, enhanced service and comprehensive support,” says Osamu Joji, Olympus America's vice president and general manager of the Scientific Equipment Group. “Researchers, clinicians, physicians and educators throughout this region will benefit.”
Olympus offers a combination of direct and dealer sales, depending on the region, to ensure that it can provide the best knowledge, products and service to microscope users across the United States.
Optical Analysis also will benefit from the change. “We have been looking for a way to streamline our business and move into other business areas,” says Richard Boone, president of Optical Analysis. “With Olympus purchasing our microscope and imaging business, we are free to concentrate on these other ventures, and our customers will have the benefit of Olympus’s renowned training and service organization.”
Under the agreement, Optical Analysis will retain its corporate name along with certain other assets. The company currently employs about 30 individuals, and those working primarily in Olympus sales and service will be able to apply to Olympus to continue in their positions under the new structure.
