Agilent Technologies Recognized By Frost & Sullivan As 2013 Laboratory Analytical Instrumentation Company Of The Year In China

Agilent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced it has been named Frost & Sullivan’s 2013 Laboratory Analytical Instrumentation Company of the Year in China. Based on the findings of its Best Practices Research, Frost & Sullivan has distinguished Agilent among all of its peers for demonstrating consistent excellence in growth strategy and implementation, technological innovation, customer value and market penetration in the Chinese laboratory analytical instrumentation industry.

“China’s analytical instrumentation industry is becoming more and more competitive, with increased demand from the food, environmental, pharmaceutical, academic and government research markets,” said Leo Jia, industry analyst for Frost & Sullivan. “Our research shows that Agilent continues to perform well and has maintained its position as the industry leader in China for several years, and we expect it to dominate the market throughout the forecast period with its strong position in the GC, HPLC, and MS market segments.”

As the company’s global hub for laboratory instrument research and development, Agilent China is also home to 21 local offices, four manufacturing facilities and four customer-training centers. Operations are managed by a team of 1,800 employees who provide customized products and services to government, university and industry laboratories.

“Having served laboratory researchers and scientists in China for more than 30 years, we are very pleased to earn this award as it reflects upon the strength of our team in China and our commitment to customers,” said Mike McMullen, president of Agilent’s Chemical Analysis Group.

“China has always been a critical market for our life sciences group and we will continue to invest in infrastructure and people to further optimize our product portfolio to provide customers with the best analytical solutions,” said Nick Roelofs, president of Agilent’s Life Sciences Group.

The prestigious Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award recognizes companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
