  Welcome to our first newsletter for 2014!

australia dayIt would seem we left a little space between newsletters, and it is feels too late to be talking about Christmas and New Years, so, we wish everyone a Happy Australia Day, and hope you all enjoyed the day off as much as we did here in Adelaide.

We have seen a couple of staff join the team with Caroline Christou joining us in in an administration/customer support role, bringing with her over 14 years of experience in the industry. Also, Derrick Choy joined us this month. Derrick spent 15 years working with the Malaysian Hitachi representatives, and will bring to NewSpec his many years of service experience working with Hitachi and other electron microscope brands.

The NewSpec Jnr team also continues to grow with Isaac Thomas Gibson-White and Lewis James Ventura stepping into the world…..we congratulate Andrew, Sonia, Michael and Natalie on their exciting new additions.

Over the last few months we have signed an exclusive distributor agreement with Zygo Corporation, as well as forming a partnership with The Innovation Group to partner with them in the distribution of both Zygo optical profilers and Asylum SPM systems. For further details on any of these products please contact Neil McMahon.
Conferences and Events GradBox
Come see us at ANS 2014 or ACMM/ICONN
At ANS we will have on display a TM3030 Desktop Electron Microscope. The TM3030 has been attracting a lot of attention offering fantastic imaging capabilities in a small package that is able to be located in any laboratory.

At ACMM/ICCON we will have two TM3030 systems (one with Bruker and the other with Oxford EDX) as well as an SU3500 SEM on display and available for demonstrations, please contact Inderpreet Gill if you would like to book a time to have the folks from Hitachi show you over these systems.
NewSpec is supporting the upcoming events listed below…
we hope to see you there!
