Our First 10 Years
Bowman was founded by the technical team that established CMI International and successfully grew the company to become a respected leader in the XRF plating measurement industry. The Bowman team offers customers the advantage of more than five decades of combined experience in the coating thickness measurement and elemental analysis industry.
We recently commemorated our 10th Anniversary as Bowman XRF, and we are more committed than ever to providing analytical innovations for OEMs and contract platers worldwide. Read our Anniversary Message here.
Our K ALPHA Connection
In May of 2016, K ALPHA acquired Bowman, its long-time partner for X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Instrumentation for coating thickness measurement, elemental analysis, and solution analysis. Business operations between the two companies were merged, and there is today one unified management bench leading this dynamic entity under the Bowman corporate name.
