Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) October 8, 2007
Despatch Industries, a 105 year old global provider of thermal processing equipment to the energy, healthcare, electronics and materials markets, proudly announces the opening of their European Regional Office in Berlin, Germany. Operating their global headquarters out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Despatch has regional offices in Shanghai, Singapore, Taipei and now Berlin. The new Berlin office will serve to support and enhance our global sales and service distribution network.
"Due to the incredible demand for our products in Europe and the Middle East, we felt that it was timely to open a regional operation there," says Patrick Peyton, Chairman and CEO. "Europe and the Middle East represent a growing and strategic market area for our innovative equipment. Berlin's central location and modern transportation systems make it a very accessible city in which to operate a global business. The close proximity of the new office to our growing customer base will deepen our local service and support, which customers tell us is one of their key criteria in selecting equipment vendors."
Another key reason for choosing Berlin as a strategic location is the growing solar energy market. "Germany has fully embraced solar technology and is heavily invested in the photovoltaic (PV) industry," says Steve Oman, Director of International Sales. "Despatch is a globally recognized provider of solar cell manufacturing equipment and has instituted partnerships with leading PV companies housed in Germany. Having an office in Berlin has already and will continue to complement our efforts in this market and across all Despatch product groups and markets."
