Sumitomo (SHI) Cryogenics of America, Inc. Announces Collaboration Agreement with Synergy Systems Corporation

New Agreement Offers Expanded Sales, Service and Support to Sumitomo’s Line of Marathon® CP Cryopumps in North America.

ALLENTOWN, PA, July 1, 2016 – Sumitomo (SHI) Cryogenics of America, Inc. (SCAI) announced a joint collaboration with Synergy Systems Corp. (SynSysCo) for the distribution and service of Sumitomo’s Marathon® CP Cryopumps across North America.

SynSysCo’s support of the Marathon® CP line includes the opening of Synergy Cryogenics at SynSysCo’s facility in Montrose, Colorado.  This 6,000 sq. ft. facility will support the sale and distribution of the complete Marathon® CP product line, including standard and low-profile cryopumps, ranging in size from eight to 20 inches, plus helium compressors and related accessories.

“The collaboration will leverage SCAI’s leadership position in cryopump design and manufacture and SynSysCo’s leadership position in vacuum solutions and service,” said Robert Deobil, President of SCAI. “We were in need of an improved distribution model in North America, and SynSysCo is the perfect fit to enhance our overall expertise and customer response.”

SynSysCo’s collaboration with SCAI further expands its commitment to bring world-class products to the dry vacuum pumping market and enhance its ability to provide turnkey solutions for its customers.

Frank Jankowsky, President of SynSysCo, added, “SynSysCo is pleased to collaborate with a world-leading technology company like Sumitomo (SHI) Cryogenics of America, Inc. SCAI’s expertise in cryogenics, and the unique capabilities of the Marathon® CP product line, provide an expanded level of product and process capability that we are excited to bring to the North American market.

We are particularly excited about the ‘Hot Swap’ feature of the Marathon® CP line, which enables our customers to change out the pump’s cryocooler in about 45 minutes and return to production without breaking vacuum or removing the cryopump from the chamber for return or replacement. This is exactly the type of distinct value advantage SynSysCo seeks to deliver to our customers through the world-class products and services we provide.”

Frank Jankowsky, President of SynSysCo
