Our History

AGC Instruments is a leading manufacturer of Gas Analysis Solutions to all users requiring a Quality Control or identification of their gas stream. Based in Ireland, we have over 50 years of experience in providing our customers with their “Total Gas Analysis Solutions”.

We are located on the west coast of Ireland which is one of the most picturesque parts of the country and based at Shannon International Airport with daily direct flights to UK, Europe and USA.

Originally established in 1965 by Mr Louis Creaven, where detector design and production to supply our large customer base in Europe and beyond was our primary market. With this success, natural progression followed which led us to the start of Gas Analyser and Gas Chromatograph production before many others decided to follow.

Following a Management Buyout in 2006, the company continued to grow and has pushed into the design of many new and innovative Gas Analysis Solutions, and in turn moved into many new markets which now stretch across most of the globe. Our loyal staff and colleagues, which form the family of AGC Instruments, has allowed us to achieve our high standards and continued development.

Working closely with all customers, we will ensure they obtain the analytical solution that meets their needs and a system that is easy to use and understand.
All AGC Distributors are extremely experienced and factory trained to the highest standards, offering you a complete after sales support service.
In April 2009, we opened our office in Beijing to support our large customer base in China. Our presence in China has allowed us to develop many new applications and strengthen our position in this growing and important market.

Through close working and understanding of our customers, we have been able to deliver quality solutions and we have come a long way from 1965 and we look forward to continuing well into the future and continuing our journey.
