The Tintometer Group Acquires Water Test Kit Business From Kittiwake Developments Ltd

The Tintometer Group of Companies, the global manufacturer and distributor of the Lovibond branded water analysis and colour measurement technology, today announced the purchase of Kittiwake Development Ltd's water test kit business.

Cay-Peter Voss – Company Chairman, The Tintometer Group and Martin Lucas – Managing Director, Kittiwake Development Ltd

The move demonstrates The Tintometer Group's long-term commitment to the expansion of its core areas; Water and Colour Analysis.

Kittiwake's range of products will serve to complement Tintometer's current portfolio and facilitate the expansion of the Lovibond® brand in the industrial water testing market. Typically the Kittiwake range is used by field engineers and facilities managers for water testing of such applications as boiler water, cooling water, pools and spas and microbiological testing.

Chris Counsell, Managing Director of The Tintometer Limited commented:
"The purchase of the Kittiwake water business will enable us to focus even greater energy and resources on the areas Tintometer® and Lovibond® are famous for; high quality instrumentation, reagents and ancillary equipment for water analysis.

We shall continue to provide our customers with market-leading and innovative solutions that deliver value for money."

Despite the challenging financial climate, The Tintometer Group continues to invest a large percentage of revenues into research and development, achieving substantial growth year on year.

The acquisition of Kittiwake's water-related business will enable customers to have a much wider choice of test technologies and The Tintometer Group will be investing further to expand the range on offer.
