Gyros AB, a world leader in the miniaturization and integration of laboratory applications, is growing rapidly. As a result, it has entered into a long-term cooperation agreement with PartnerTech. Worth approximately SEK 150 million over 2½ years, the agreement covers production of the Gyrolab Workstation microlaboratory. PartnerTech will deliver approximately SEK 30 million in products during 2007.
Jan Würtz, CEO of Gyros AB, says that "we have great confidence in PartnerTech as a contract manufacturer. Thanks to PartnerTech's extensive knowledge, capacity and flexibility, Gyros can maintain its focus on core operations. PartnerTech's skills and experience have also contributed to measures that add up to major cost savings when manufacturing the product."
Gyros's area of speciality is quantitative protein analysis for research, drug discovery and development applications. The company's unique microfluidics-based technology allows its customers to perform protein analysis and analytical development much more cost-effectively.The longstanding relationship between PartnerTech and Gyros is constantly expanding. PartnerTech already has responsibility for producing the entire Gyrolab Workstation LIF analytical tool, from component purchases to finished product. PartnerTech's Åtvidaberg plant has specialist expertise in this type of product.
Mikael Jonson, CEO of PartnerTech AB, says that "the cooperation with Gyros is an excellent illustration of how our business concept and know-how can offer our customers the freedom and leeway to develop and market their core expertise. I am very pleased by Gyros's advances and proud that we are an integral part of its ongoing expansion."
