Finalized Tuesday, the transaction immediately expands Swedesboro-based Thomas Scientific’s national footprint while enhancing its ability to provide products and services to companies in advanced technology and industrial segments with controlled and industrial environments.
The addition of Quintana’s facility in Haverhill, Massachusetts, increases Thomas’ footprint of distribution centers in the Northeast, furthering the ability to assist cleanroom production customers in these critical markets.
Quintana Supply has been serving the Northeast market for the past 32 years. In that time, has been fortunate to service some of the largest medical device companies in the Northeast. Founded by Frank and Mike Quintana on the commitment to offer customers the highest level of service, without adding any additional costs, has allowed growth and prosperity over the course of its existence.
“Frank and Mike Quintana have built a wonderful business model combining products and service solutions to support the demanding needs of critical environment production customers. I am pleased that Frank, Mike and the entire Quintana team are now a part of the Thomas Scientific family of companies. By our two companies combining, Thomas Scientific and Quintana Supply, customers will benefit through an expanded product portfolio and enhanced service solutions,” Thomas Scientific CEO Stan Haas said.
“In the past five years, we have been approached by many companies to be acquired. Through all of those offers, we never felt that anyone cared about the legacy that we have built, or the current employees that we value. When Thomas approached us, it seemed like family and, when they stated they wanted to grow our facility, not shutter it, it was a done deal,” Frank Quintana said. “After 32 years, Mike and I felt that we were at the point where the only way to grow was to be a part of a larger, national company. Being considered the Northeast hub of Thomas ensures that all of our customers, as well as our employees, will only gain from this merger and that the Quintana name and reputation will continue to grow for the next 30 years.”
Thomas Scientific has made five previous acquisitions since late 2017, adding eight inventory stocking locations, numerous new product lines and teams of subject matter experts into the company. The experience and learnings the team has gained from these very strategic acquisitions have substantially improved the overall capabilities to serve customers and continue to add talented individuals who align with Thomas.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Quintana’s valued customers, suppliers and talented associates to the Thomas Scientific Controlled Environments team. This acquisition significantly enhances our capability to serve our CE customers in the Northeast – New England region and reinforces our commitment to delivering personalized local, high-touch service and supply solutions to our CE customers. Together, we are well-positioned to meet the evolving needs of the advanced technology market,” Kareem Dossa, senior vice president, controlled environments, at Thomas Scientific, said.
Quintana Supply will continue to operate independently under the Thomas Scientific umbrella.
