Carbolite was acquired by the Dutch technology group, Verder, in 2012 as part of an expansion into the provision of products for high-temperature material testing and physicochemical analysis.
The Verder Group consists of two main business units - Liquids (positive displacement pumps) and Scientific (laboratory equipment). With more than 800 employees and subsidiaries in 19 countries the group generates an annual turnover of €160 million. The core of the Scientific Division, which was built on renowned companies such as Retsch (milling and sieving) and Retsch Technology (particle size analysis), has been extended by the acquisition of Carbolite, Eltra (elemental analysis) and Endecotts. Dr Jürgen Pankratz was appointed Director of the Verder Scientific Division.
