Düssel­dorf — ARQIS advi­sed Shimadzu Corpo­ra­tion on the acqui­si­tion of all shares in infra­serv Vaku­um­ser­vice GmbH, a specia­list in the main­ten­ance of turbo­mole­cu­lar pumps in Europe. infra­serv Vaku­um­ser­vice has become a wholly owned subsi­diary of Shimadzu.

With 25 employees, infra­serv Vaku­um­ser­vice gene­ra­ted net sales of 4.9 million euros in 2017. The company is based near Munich and services the vacuum systems of major semi­con­duc­tor and equip­ment manu­fac­tu­r­ers in Europe. It has high tech­ni­cal compe­tence and good rela­ti­ons with its custo­mers. Shimadzu has alre­ady outsour­ced service work for turbo­mole­cu­lar pumps to infra­serv Vakuumservice.

The acqui­si­tion is a step towards further deve­lo­ping Shimadzu’s Euro­pean turbo­mole­cu­lar pump busi­ness and streng­thening local sales acti­vi­ties and tech­ni­cal support.
