NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Swiss biopharmaceutical supply and research instruments company Tecan held a ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday for a new Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Shanghai’s pharmaceutical and life sciences center, the company said.
The new office will sell directly to biotech, diagnostic, and pharmaceutical companies in the region, and the company will provide training, warehousing, and other services out of the new branch. The company plans to maintain its operations in Beijing, which it said will continue its “close regional relationships with customers in China.”
Tecan also said that it plans to use the same distributor network it had previously to cover the Asia Pacific region.
“With a stronger presence and new facilities, we will be able to improve sales coverage, service, and support to all of our customers and partners in the entire Asia Pacific region,” Tecan Group CEO Thomas Bachmann said in a statement.
