908 Devices to expand to global market

908 Devices announced Wednesday it has reached agreements with distributors in Europe and Australia to send products to 18 countries.

The company develops chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive threat-detection technology for local to federal levels of government.

“The demonstrated success of our international strategic partners allows us to bring M908 into new territories with the same user-insight, technical know-how and top-notch product support customers should expect from 908 Devices,” 908 Vice President of Sales John Kenneweg said.

The company is establishing international management and business teams to facilitate relations from their Boston office.

“Our sole focus is the safety of those on the front lines who are keeping us safe," Managing Director of European Distribution Kevin Miller said. "With more than a decade immersed in the hazardous material and emergency response community, our customers depend on us to seek out and supply the latest in leading-edge technology. We think M908 is just that. First response teams are eager for this new capability and we are pleased to partner with 908 Devices to launch and support M908 in the U.K."

Distribution partners will allow the company to conduct business in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Slovenia, Croatia, the U.K., Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, France, New Zealand and Australia.
