WITec opens branch offices in Japan and Spain


WITec GmbH, worldwide leader in nano-analytical microscopy systems, continues to expand its worldwide presence with the opening of new regional offices in Japan and Spain. Rapid growth in Europe and Asia over the last several years has made the new locations the logical step in order to help the company better serve its growing client base. Both offices will provide sales operations, pre- and after-sales technical support, customer event organization or product demonstrations.

The WITec office in Japan is conveniently located at the Kanagawa Science Park (KSP) and will specifically meet the requirements of the Japanese market. Head of the new office is Dr. Keiichi Nakamoto. He can look back on more than 20 years of experience in Scanning Probe Microscopy and was head of an R&D group at the JEOL SPM-division.

Located in Barcelona, the new WITec office in Spain will serve primarily the Spanish and Portuguese market. Area manager and head of the office is Dr. Elena Bailo. As a former member of the WITec service and support team, Dr. Bailo is very well experienced with the company's product line.

"As our business continues to grow across the globe, we are very excited about the potential of the new offices for our business development in the future" says Dr. Joachim Koenen, co-founder and managing director of WITec. "Japan and South-West Europe are important territories for us and the new offices are the perfect example of how we are expanding our geographic footprint in order to provide better local service for our customers".
