Enabling it to provide more ‘customized attention’ to customers in the Baltic States region, Lippke (a MOCON company) has signed a distributor agreement with Interautomatika UAB, of Vilnius, Lithuania.

The agreement will benefit Lippke customers in the food, packaging and medical device fields.

Up until now, the Baltics had been serviced out of Lippke’s Neuwied, Germany headquarters.

But an increasing number of instrumentation requests from the Eastern Europe region prompted the company to enter into an agreement which would provide enhanced service via local representation. As a result, Interautomatika is now the exclusive distributor of MOCON permeation instrumentation and the Lippke VC 1380 vacuum leak tester for Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

For Minneapolis, MN-based MOCON, it means Interautomatika will be representing MOCON/Lippke’s extensive line of permeation instrumentation including oxygen, moisture vapor and carbon dioxide testing. Additionally, the company will be selling the Lippke VC 1380 vacuum leak tester for pharmaceutical/ medical packaging applications. 

Lippke (Paul Lippke Handels-GmbH, a MOCON company) is the premier European provider of innovative testing instruments and laboratory services to the packaging, pharmaceutical, food, medical device and photovoltaic industries

“Baltic food, beverage and pharmaceutical companies are looking to expand their export potential into other European countries. In order to do so, they need to be able to prove that their products meet the quality standards that have been established in those countries,” said Franz Sturm, managing director, Lippke.

“Investing in leading-edge permeation and leak detection instrumentation helps them meet those goals.”
