AMETEK Brookfield has launched an ecommerce website for its Australian customers. AMETEK Brookfield instruments, accessories and parts can be purchased online in Australian dollars and with free shipping on all orders.

AMETEK Brookfield vice president and business unit manager Joe Plante said: “Brookfield’s Australia e-commerce store launch marks a significant milestone as we seek to expand our global e-commerce footprint and product availability.

“We are excited to provide Australian customers with the same convenient Brookfield shopping experience and high level of service our existing customers expect.”

AMETEK Brookfield is part of AMETEK’s Instrumentation & Specialty Controls division. This is AMETEK Brookfield's fifth online store launch in the last 12 months – the US in September 2019, in Europe and the UK in June and India in July.

Plante said ecommerce makes hundreds of new products available to customers seeking instruments, replacement parts and accessories around the world.

Brookfield instruments analyse quality characteristics for a variety of materials across many industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and cosmetics.
