Hitachi High-Technologies and Park Systems Sign Distribution Agreement for Japan
Under this agreement, Hitachi High-Tech is responsible for the marketing and distribution of Park Systemsâ€™ complete line of AFMs in Japan.
Hitachi High-Technologies, (â€ťHitachi High-Techâ€ť), a cutting-edge technology company of science & medical systems, and Park Systems, the leading nanotechnology solutions partner for nanoscale measurements, have announced that they have signed a distribution agreement for Japan.
â€śWe are delighted to have signed this agreement with Park Systems, which will help us expand our offering of value-added and innovative product solutions to the AFM/SPM community in Japan,â€ť said Tsutomu Okada, head of science systems sales and marketing division. â€śThe Park Systems product line will be an excellent complement to our own extensive range of analytical instruments, including scanning electron microscopes.â€ť
Park Systems serves its customers by providing a complete range of AFM solutions including AFM systems, options and software. Hitachi High-Tech will represent Park Systemsâ€™ original and innovative AFM solutions for the most accurate nanoscale measurement, leveraged by the crosstalk-elimination (XE) metrology platform that overcomes non-linearity and non-orthogonality associated with conventional piezotube-based AFMs.
â€śIn order to be successful in the Japanese market, it is imperative to partner with a reputable local distributor who has a strong sales and customer support infrastructure in place. Hitachi High-Tech has been the prominent choice that Park Systems has pursued for years. It is a great honor and relief that Hitachi High-Tech decided to enter into the AFM market and distribute our products in Japan,â€ť said Ryan Yoo, Park Systemsâ€™ vice president of global sales and marketing. â€śIt is a momentous day not only for Park Systems, but also for all AFM customers in Japan. We look forward to a long term partnership with Hitachi High-Tech for many years to comeâ€ť
To enhance application and service support in the Japanese market, Park Systems Japan has expanded its facility and established a new application laboratory which will host a series of research and industrial AFM products with a complete range of modes and options. Both companies will advance sales promotions by actively sponsoring and presenting at academic conferences and exhibitions.
