In September 2013, Agilent Technologies announced plans to separate into two publicly traded companies: one in life sciences, diagnostics and applied markets, and the other in electronic measurement. Earlier this month, it revealed that its electronic measurement business will become Keysight Technologies, a name which connotes seeing what others cannot, having the critical or key insight to understand and unlock the changing technology landscape. The new name is expected to come into use in most countries from 1st August 2014.
‘Microlease has had a consistently close relationship with Agilent not just as exclusive Authorised Technology Partner in the UK, Ireland and Italy but also as the company’s Premier Rental Partner in Europe and Premium Distributor in Italy,’ said George Acris, director of marketing, Microlease Europe. ‘We are excited about this announcement and we are looking forward to working with Keysight Technologies in the future and continuing to deliver the same high level of service and support to customers as we have always done in the past.’
