About us

We are Malvern Panalytical. We're BIG on small.

We are here to unleash the power of very small things, to make big things happen.

Our technologies enable our customers to create a better world. Improving everything from the energies that power us and the materials we build with, to the medicines that cure us and the foods we enjoy.

We partner with many of the world’s biggest companies, universities and research organizations. They value us not only for the power of our solutions, but also for the depth of our expertise, collaboration and integrity.

We are a globally diverse mix of visionary thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and detail-loving geeks. United by knowing that when you can make the invisible visible, you make the impossible possible.

Small things make big things happen

Developing vitamins and vaccines. Enhancing concrete and chemicals. Monitoring soil and water quality. Making chocolate and coffee taste even better. 

Almost every aspect of our modern world has been developed or improved by understanding its fundamental chemical, physical or structural make-up. 

Our instruments combine cutting edge engineering with the latest developments in data analytics and AI – allowing industries and researchers to understand the world with absolute precision, from biomolecular structures to quantum dots.

So whether it’s improving quality, optimizing production, or inventing entirely new medicines and materials, our customers know that we’ll help them understand the small things that make big things happen.

Our journey to Net Zero by 2030

We know a thing or two about scientific measurement, so we’re fully aware of the scale of the Net Zero challenge. Our interim targets are based on the best possible science and aligned to a 1.5 degree warming scenario. 

We will be net zero in our own operations by 2030 – and across our entire value chain of suppliers and stakeholders by 2040. 

Please take a look at our Journey to Net Zero brochure to read how we will achieve our targets.

Our community impact

We are committed to making a difference in the communities where we operate through strategic philanthropy, partnerships and volunteering. 

Every year we have a Global Values Day, when everyone at Malvern Panalytical is given time off to help their own local communities.

Our ethical business practices

We do business the right way, every day. We run all our facilities to the highest safety standards to protect our people, the public and the environment. And as our Code of Business Ethics shows, we always work with absolute integrity and in line with the spirit and letter of the law in all the countries we operate in.
