Recognizing Asia as a major growth market, Bronkhorst High-Tech BV (Ruurlo, the Netherlands; www.bronkhorst.com) has already opened several branch offices for sales and service in Japan, Taiwan and China in recent years. In late 2013, Bronkhorst acquired its distributor in South Korea with the intention of serving its customers in that country even more effectively through its own sales and service office. Bronkhorst Korea Co. Ltd., located in Seoul, is scheduled to open in February 2014 and will feature a full range of state-of-the-art calibration and test equipment as well as cleanroom capabilities. "This new establishment in Asia will help us to strengthen our position as a world-class player in the field of high-grade flow measurement and control equipment. Thanks to the excellent commercial and technical support on site, we will be able to ensure optimum service for both local customers and our global accounts," says managing director Ben Brussen.
