Johnson Matthey GPT expands European distribution and service network

Johnson Matthey Gas Purification Technology (GPT) group of West Chester, PA, USA, which manufactures bulk and point-of-use gas purifiers, has expanded its European Distribution and Service network with three new distributors:

  • CMC Instruments will cover Germany, led by Manfred Mauntz and Ralph Schroder.
  • Innodys will be responsible for France, Spain, Portugal and the UK, under the direction of Manuel Santana.
  • Sigma Technologies will represent GPT in Italy and throughout Eastern Europe, headed by Furio Pierri.

“Each of our new distributors support gas companies and customer facilities using high-purity gas for silicon, compound semiconductor, PV and analytical applications,” says national sales manager Stuart Bestrom. “Our distributors’ knowledge of their local markets will help us make sure that our products and services meet the needs of the growing European marketplace,” he adds.

The Johnson Matthey GPT group has more than 5000 gas purification systems installed worldwide and maintains facilities in North America, France, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, China and Hong Kong.
