Seward Ltd, makers of the Stomacher® Lab System and Insterprep® sterile media, is very pleased to announce that it has merged with its sister company, C-Tech Electronics Ltd, to form a new vertically integrated manufacturing company called FermionX Ltd. There will be no change to Seward’s name, and its high standard of operations known and expected by its customers will also remain the same, but with the added benefit of increased technical resource for R&D, customer support and manufacturing.
The merger represents a significant development for stakeholders, creating a company with combined turnover of circa £6M. This move consolidates two companies with shared core values on strong customer relationships, quality and value-added products and service.
FermionX will continue to operate through its individual brands; Seward, manufacturers of globally renowned Stomacher® lab blenders, and C-Tech Electronics, providing comprehensive electronic contract manufacturing services. The Company will leverage both brands’ respective strengths for the benefit of its customers with greater resources for manufacturing, R&D and global sales and distribution footprint.
The merger provides a greater technical resource for Seward to enhance its R&D strategy, an area which has gained emphasis recently with the launch of the Stomacher® 400 EVO laboratory blender and Insterprep® range of pre-weighed, sterile media. Continue reading
