ERC provides IDEX with access to key analytical instrumentation customers, a strong manufacturing base in Japan, vital products for clinical diagnostic applications and a gateway to the burgeoning instrumentation markets of Asia. We look forward to significant collaboration in the critical areas of new product design, global sourcing and manufacturing, as we realize strategic account management and operating synergies. We believe ERC affords IDEX Health and Science a unique opportunity to strengthen our product offering for current customers as well as providing access to new and influential market participants.” ERC President, Yoshio Ishii, added, “we believe the chance to join IDEX’s Health and Science Technologies segment and their global family of brands is a great opportunity for our customers, suppliers and employees.
