Gem Scientific acquired and now part of SLS group.
We are pleased to announce that Gem Scientific has been acquired by Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS). We will continue to operate independently and retain all employees, whilst harnessing SLS’s business support and infrastructure to benefit all parties, stakeholders and customers.
Justin Welton, Managing Director at Gem Scientific, commented: “We are committed to providing clients with high quality and innovative products, backed by first-class service and support. The new partnership with SLS will help to accelerate our growth, enhance our capabilities and expand our product portfolio. I couldn’t have imagined a better outcome for the team at Gem and I’m really excited to continue our mission and look forward to joining forces with SLS. This is truly a great outcome for all our employees, partners and valued customers.”
Ian Roulstone, Managing Director at SLS, said: “These new additions to the SLS Group provide further opportunity to serve more customers with a broader range of products and first-class service. The move also secures the roles of all existing personnel and will provide further development and recruitment opportunities within a growing organisation that is completely customer-focused. This is an important milestone for the SLS Group, and keeping the customer at the centre of our strategy will continue to drive us forward as we increase our product offerings and expand into new markets and geographies.”
Becoming part of the SLS family will reinforce and supplement Gem Scientific’s supply chain and provide the company with additional operational support to encourage further growth.
