ASD Mining and Industrial Partners Bringing Spectroscopy Solutions to South America

September 19, 2012
The ASD reseller family continues to grow. We’re excited to announce the addition of two new resellers to our partnership team, marking our expansion into the South American mining and industrial markets. Lima-based Centex Instrumentacion y Equipos S.A.C. allows us to move into one of the continent’s most developed mining industries. Santiago-based Soltex Chile S.A. will distribute our instrumentation into mining as well as a variety of key industrial markets.

In Peru, Bolivia and Chile, Centex and Soltex’s customers can expect the same quality and service that ASD has long provided around the world. We’re proud to support the mining and industrial operators with the critical tools they need to increase their yields and profitability in production in these growing markets.

Both Centex and Soltex will represent the TerraSpec® 4 and QualitySpec® 7000 lines of instruments to their respective countries’ mining industries. These lines employ rapid and non-destructive mineral analysis. Soltex will also distribute the LabSpec® 4 lab analyzer line to Chile’s industrial markets. This line supports the most advanced and diverse materials analysis applications.

Centex was founded in 1990 and is focused in three business segments: air quality monitoring, emission control and safety instruments, instrumentation for industrial and analytical laboratories, and EPC contracting for laboratory construction. Soltex was founded in 1986 and supplies highly reliable equipment and proven solutions for the fluid handling, automation and process control industries.

As many South American industries continue to grow rapidly, ASD is ready to help progress the mining and industrial markets in Peru, Bolivia and Chile through Centex and Soltex. We look forward to further building our partnership team in the coming months. Check back soon for updated information about new resellers being added to the ASD family!
