Sigma-Aldrich buys RTC

Sigma-Aldrich has acquired the assets of Resource Technology Corporation (RTC) of Laramie, Wyoming, USA, manufacturer of analytical standards and certified reference materials. The acquisition of RTC's business complements Sigma-Aldrich's recently completed acquisition of Cerilliant, and further expands and strengthens Sigma-Aldrich's analytical chemistry offerings. Terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

The RTC products also complement Sigma-Alrich’s Supelco and Fluka brand analytical reagents, standards and separation consumables with the addition of its core expertise in design, development, characterisation and packaging of analytical standards, matrix standards, certified reference materials and proficiency testing.

"The strong and innovative products offered by RTC bring new opportunities for expanding our business," commented Russel Gant, Vice President of the Analytical Research business for Sigma-Aldrich.  "Their experienced team, capabilities and customer contacts combine nicely with our breadth of product, high-quality portfolio, extensive scientific knowledge and global footprint. The RTC acquisition will allow Sigma-Aldrich to provide customers with an even broader range of specialised, analytical standards and services."
