TAGSYS, the global leader in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and reading systems for item-level tracking and authentication, announced today the opening of a new office in Hong Kong to meet the growing demand for RFID implementation in the Northern Asian market. This expansion strengthens TAGSYSÂ overall presence in the Asia Pacific region.
ÂThe opening of the Hong Kong office expands TAGSYSÂ strategic plan to broaden its RFID activities in Northern Asia -- focusing on the most rapidly growing regions: China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Taiwan,Â said Frederic Noe, Managing Director, TAGSYS Asia. ÂTAGSYS already has established significant and reliable partner relationships in Southeast Asia through the Singapore office, resulting in prestigious references and projects with high profile clients. Our local presence in Hong Kong will have a dedicated sales and technical team.Â

Library RFID tagging, a segment in which TAGSYS already holds a commanding lead, will continue to be a growth market in Asia, followed by pharmaceutical and fashion apparel tagging.Â
