PEABODY, MA (JUNE 16, 2021) – AMETEK TMC, the industry leader in advanced floor vibration cancellation technology, is pleased to announce a partnership with Photon Lines Optica SL to better support and serve customers in Spain and Portugal.

“We are delighted to welcome Photon Lines Optica SL as our new distributor for Spain and Portugal,” said Steffen Roerentrop, European Sales Manager of TMC. “TMC has been successfully working with members of today’s Photon Lines team in France since the early 1990s. We look forward to expanding our relationship to support customers in Spain and Portugal.”

“After seeing my first optical table with a multiphoton microscope 20 years ago, floating in the National Centre for Biotechnology with a Bio-Rad system, I fell in love with anti-vibration technology,” said Ramon Villanova, Sales Manager for Photon Lines Optica. “Now, it is an honor be part of the TMC family with Photon Lines Optica in Iberia.”

“Throughout our 20-year partnership with TMC, we have shared the same passion for protecting optical systems and critical experiments from disturbances, such as vibration,” said Eric Drean, CEO Photon Lines SAS. “This long-lasting relationship between TMC and Photon Lines is the result of a meaningful partnership. We both have a mutual desire to provide the best service and the best anti-vibration systems (active and passive) while also accommodating tailor-made installations for the greatest satisfaction of our customers. Together, we have been able to meet this challenge of always providing the best solutions for our customers, and we look forward to bringing this same philosophy to the markets in Spain and Portugal.”
