Restek Continues Global Expansion With the Acquisition of Superchrom

Effective May 31, 2013, Restek Corporation of Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, has become a majority owner of Superchrom S.r.l., a well-known chromatography supply company in Milan, Italy.

Superchrom was founded in 1976 and has a rich history in the industry. Under the leadership of Sara Neri and Aldo Perissin, it grew into one of the most recognized and respected chromatography consumables providers in Italy. Known for its passion for excellent customer service, Superchrom will be a perfect fit in the Restek global network. The conversion from long-time distributor to Restek subsidiary will give Italian customers direct access to Restek’s innovative GC and LC columns and accessories, certified reference materials (CRMs), sample preparation materials, and air sampling products.

Mr. Carlo Ciocca, Sales and Marketing Director, will transition into the role of General Manager for this newly formed Restek enterprise. Superchrom joins Restek subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, and China, as well as a robust distributor network that covers over 100 countries across six continents—all with the goal of providing superior, cutting-edge chromatography solutions and world-class Plus 1 service through a local source.

In collaboration with the same excellent support team that Superchrom’s valued customers have come to rely on, Restek is eager to begin personally serving analysts throughout Italy. Our mission is to be the company that Italian chromatographers trust.
