Good news was confirmed at Pittcon 2018 - Eastern Applied Research and the newly formed Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science America, Inc (Hitachi) finalized an agreement for the continued distribution of Hitachi XRF analyzers through Eastern Applied.  For the last three years, Eastern Applied has been a primary distributor of Hitachi's high performance x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers.  However, at the end of 2017, Hitachi acquired the Industrial Analysis division of Oxford Instruments (which includes XRF) and discussions on Eastern Applied's distribution role had been in discussion since.

Eastern Applied is happy to move forward with an expanded role in the distribution of Hitachi x-ray fluorescence analyzers.  In addition to coating thickness measurement systems (both XRF analyzers and contact gauges) and the EA-Series for elemental analysis, Eastern Applied will now be a regional distributor of Hitachi "bulk x-ray fluorescence".  The bulk analyzers come over from Oxford Instruments and include the X-Supreme8000 and newly launched LabX-5000 (replacing the popular LabX-3500) for petrochemical and mineral analysis interests.

"Everyone in the Eastern Applied family is excited to continue working with Hitachi," says CEO of Eastern, Shawn Kramer.  "Our sales associates are certainly excited because the performance and advantages that each x-ray fluorescence analyzer provides over the comparable competition truly makes them 'best in class' but our XRF service department is also pleased because the Hitachi line does not give users any problems!"

Eastern Applied brings a unique history and knowledge base to support their clients questions and interests because of their experience in sales and service of both the Hitachi and Oxford lines of x-ray fluorescence.  The sales territory varies based on analyzer model but the primary region is the Eastern United States.  Eastern Applied can provide options to current clients and is always happy to connect interested parties to the appropriate distributor - so contact Eastern Applied with questions.
