We are very happy to have John on board representing us on the West Coast. He has a lot of experience with selling probes, knows the needs of our customers and, together with the East Coast office, gives us live phone coverage from 8:00 to 5:00 through all time zones.
Lady's Island, SC (PRWEB) January 5, 2007
NanoAndMore USA Inc., a supplier of nanotechnology products including atomic force microscope (AFM) probes and scientific instruments, announced that it has opened a West Coast office this month. On December 18, 2006 the NanoAndMore USA West Coast office officially opened its doors.
This comes at a very early time for NanoAndMore USA, only a little over a year after founding in Beaufort, South Carolina.
"Our business has been growing much faster than expected and the rapidly increasing demand made this step necessary much sooner. We have therefore decided to open a West Coast office at the end of this year. Originally we had planned to open a West Coast office in another two years time", said George McMurtry, president and founder.
The West Coast office of NanoAndMore USA is located in Portland and is headed by John Quintero who is well known in the industry. "John was instrumental in building up the US sales of another company selling nanotech consumables to scientists and engineers. He has over 5 years successful experience with the sales of AFM probes in the United States and is ideally suited for the new challenge of expanding NanoAndMore's business even further.
"We are very happy to have John on board representing us on the West Coast. He has a lot of experience with selling probes, knows the needs of our customers and, together with the East Coast office, gives us live phone coverage from 8:00 to 5:00 through all time zones." McMurtry added.
About NanoWorld Holding AG:
The NanoWorld Holding AG is a purely financial holding company and does not conduct operational business.
The present key activities of the associated companies are concentrated on the development, production and commercialization of consumables for Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) namely AFM probes or tips for Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPM).
In the future the leading position of the associated companies in the core business will be further expanded and new markets are going to be developed in the fields of High Tech and Nanotechnology through strategic alliances and acquisitions.
Central functions fulfilled by the holding include access to capital markets and steering the group strategically, thus relieving the group's units, allowing them to concentrate on their customer related activity.
The holding's headcount is being kept deliberately low in order to limit group overheads to a minimum.
About NanoAndMore USA:
NanoAndMore USA Corp. (NAM) was founded in 2005 by NanoWorld Holding AG and George McMurtry, formerly a founder and vice president of Quesant Instrument Corporation, one of the oldest AFM manufacturers. The corporation headed by George McMurtry as CEO is situated on Lady's Island, South Carolina.
NAM was the first distributor of AFM probes to sell them in premounted formats for those AFM systems that require them (such as Quesant Instrument and older Park Scientific systems), as well as just the probes themselves giving the end user a second source of necessary premounted tips with the flexibility of a complete range of premounts from the budget conscious BudgetSensors line to the premier NanoWorld™ and NANOSENSORS™ probes.
NAM USA is also distributing Digital Holographic Microscopes from Lyncee Tec, Nanosight Particle Size Analyzers, Minus-K vibration isolation equipment and the Scanning Probe Image Processor from Image Metrology. NanoAndMore will be adding additional surface analysis products and will gladly discuss distribution of such products with manufacturers; all but AFMs will be considered.
