Rodolfo Haedo, senior vice president North America, says: “I am delighted to see Nanion continue to grow so rapidly in the US. As we expand to the West Coast, we can further strengthen the focused and attentive customer support that has helped build our success. As the sales of our SyncroPatch 384/768PE HTS systems have substantially increased over the last years, we have decided to expand both our infrastructure and personnel in this region full of young energetic startup companies. In addition to the office and new West Coast Field Application Scientist position, we anticipate future employment opportunities in order to help support and foster the rapidly increasing customer base. We are all very much looking forward to this new phase we are entering at Nanion.”
