FRESNO, CA and EDEN PRAIRIE, MN, Aug. 2 /CNW/ - FOSS North America and Gusmer Enterprises, Inc. have reached a new level of partnership to better serve the wine industry. Gusmer now both sells and services the OenoFoss (TM), a revolutionary analytical instrument for winemakers of all sizes. As a FOSS Certified Service Provider, Gusmer will distribute the OenoFoss and stock replacement parts for U.S. and Canada customers, as well as offer regular maintenance and unscheduled service support.
OenoFoss is FOSS's newest addition to its wine-related analytical solutions offerings. Equipped with the key calibrations pre-loaded, OenoFoss is a simple-to-use instrument that measures main quality parameters of grape must, must under fermentation and wine from a single drop of a single sample.
Depending upon the calibration package purchased, the system will measure up to seven parameters among: sugar, pH, total acidity, glucose+fructose, malic acid, ethanol, volatile acidity, NOPA/YAN and color.
In preparation for the FOSS service provider certification, Gusmer associates received multiple hours of training, including instrumentation design and control, installation and repair, and onsite and remote trouble-shooting . The company has been a FOSS distributor since early 2009.
"Gusmer is proud that we have become a FOSS Certified Service Provider for the OenoFoss," says Jessup Wiley, Gusmer product manager. "With this new agreement, we will be able to deliver the same high quality instrumentation that you have come to trust from FOSS along with the customer service promise you've always enjoyed with Gusmer."
"We are excited by the opportunities this presents for our customers," says Mark Host, vice president of North America sales with FOSS. "Gusmer has been an excellent sales partner, and now we are able to expand our service capabilities to this key market through its technician service corps."
