Inverness Graham acquires Electron Microscopy Sciences

Inverness Graham Investments, a private investment firm that acquires innovative tech-enabled manufacturing, service and software companies, has acquired Electron Microscopy Sciences (EMS). 

EMS manufactures and distributes lab consumables and equipment for the microscopy, general research, and other ancillary lab research markets. Inverness Graham’s investment in EMS is the result of a proactive, targeted search in the life sciences manufacturing & distribution market.

"We’re excited to be partnering with Stacie and the team at EMS to continue to solidify their position as a thought leader and go-to provider of microscopy, histology and sample prep reagents and consumables used in research lab settings," says Paul Nolen, Managing Principal of Inverness Graham. "We believe we are well positioned to partner with management to aggressively invest in new product offerings & capabilities, strengthen operations & infrastructure, and pursue complementary add-on acquisitions to help us expand into high-growth adjacent markets with new, targeted products."

Stacie Kirsch, who will continue as President of EMS, says: "I’m thrilled to partner with Inverness Graham to build on the tremendous growth EMS has achieved. We look forward to continuing to provide exceptional service to both existing and new customers by leveraging the additional operating and financial resources Inverness has to offer."

Inverness and EMS together are looking for add-on acquisitions that provide lab consumables and chemicals to a diverse range of research markets.

Paul Hastings LLP advised Inverness Graham. Terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed.
