SWAN Analytical Instruments at its Best

SWAN Analytical Instruments congratulates Best Instruments to its 10th anniversary. The company's first round birthday also represents the 10th anniversary of successful cooperation between SWAN and Best.

SWAN has been present in Europe for almost 25 years but only started to conquer the Benelux territory with the beginning of a very fruitful cooperation with Best Instruments back in 2005. Best Instruments and its competent sales and technical service team, has since grown the installed base of SWAN analysers, surpassing 1'000 installations in its anniversary year. SWAN is proud to look back on 10 years of collaboration and a large number of satisfied customers in power stations and municipal utilities as well as in other industries that are even reaching across the globe. We wish Best Instruments a powerful continuation on their path of success.

SWAN Analytische Instrumente AG stays independent

The founders of SWAN Analytical Instruments are pleased to announce that they have signed an agreement with a financial investor. The Swiss based family office has acquired 35% of the outstanding shares of SWAN and has entered into a long-term agreement with all other shareholders. The transaction provides liquidity to the founders. At the same time, the company can count on an anchor shareholder for its future.

Some of the founders will gradually go into partial retirement and a new generation of talented R&D engineers has started to replace them. Members of the management have substantially increased their shareholding in SWAN. The founders, however, will still decide on strategic issues and retain a majority of the votes.

Future Growth

Investors, founders and the management count on employees and associates to maintain and increase SWAN's reputation in the world. The intention is to provide high quality instruments for the customers and attractive employment for associates, operators, distributors and employees.

Thank you all
As we withdraw from the day-to-day business in SWAN we want to express our gratitude for the tremendous support we have had over all these years form our colleagues abroad, beginning in 1991 to the well-established business in 2015. This success story would not have been possible without the commitment of our partners within and outside of the company.

For the founders of SWAN
