Nanion Opens New Branch in China

Today, Nanion announces the opening of yet another branch. To meet the needs of the rapidly expanding number of customers in China, the dedicated sales- and support team in Beijing now opens the doors to Nanion Technologies China.

Munich, Germany, October 26, 2011 --( Nanion successfully entered the Chinese market over five years ago, and the installed base of Patchliner and Port-a-Patch instruments has grown constantly ever since. To cover the increasing interest and activities within the fields of ion channel screening, scientific and contract research, the subsidiary Nanion Technologies China is now officially open.

Andy Di, General Manager, Nanion Technologies China, says:

“Nanion’s customer base in China has grown rapidly over the past couple of years. Nanion’s products are very appreciated here because of their vast experimental freedom paired with increased throughput and affordable consumables. Because of their high quality and reliability, products like the SyncroPatch 96, the Patchliner and the Port-a-Patch are attractive for both industrial screening purposes and for dedicated academic research.”

Niels Fertig, CEO of Nanion Technologies GmbH, continues:

“Because of the expanding Chinese market and customer base, it was a natural step to expand in China. With the new subsidiary we are able to cover the ever-increasing demand for product demonstrations and installations as well as to continue giving our Chinese customers premium support. We definitely feel that we have the right people in place for this important step in Nanion’s history, and we look forward to a fruitful collaboration with the Nanion team in China.”

Nanion Technologies China offers live product demonstrations and customer training in Beijing and Shanghai, or at the customer site.
