The company wants to strengthen its presence in Southeast Asia with its own infrastructure and develop a sales network for the entire Southeast Asian market via the subsidiary in Bangkok.
The product portfolio with analytical instrumentation technology in particular is to be sold via Analytik Jena Far East (Thailand) Ltd., which is to be a regional competence center.
In individual product divisions, such as atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS), Analytik Jena already has market shares of up to 20.0% in selected Asian markets.
