Having continuously marketed and supported LaMotte’s products and services in the Australian market since 1988, exclusive distributor Vendart Pty Ltd will now be known as LaMotte Pacific Pty Ltd.
The name change highlights not only the many years of marketing and representation for LaMotte Company, headquartered in Maryland, USA, but the close ties and business relationship between the two companies.
“The relationship has now grown to the point where we are partners in providing quality equipment and guidance for water analysis to the Australian market and the Pacific,” says LaMotte Pacific managing director Jason Leach.
Timed with the name change is the establishment of a chemistry department within the Australian company. The new department will increase support capabilities locally for technical and other testing requirements, with the help of in-house qualified chemists.
Largest non-US distributor
David LaMotte, president of LaMotte Company, says LaMotte Pacific has grown to become their largest distributor outside of the USA.
“Together, we expect to be able to provide better service and technical support for Australia and the Pacific, which hopefully will make a difference for our customers Down Under,” he says.
LaMotte Pacific markets electronic instruments and reagents to the swimming pool and spa industry, environmental groups, water authorities, industrial water treatment companies and the agriculture industry, to enable them to accurately and effortlessly test water quality.
