NanoInk Expands Asia Pacific Coverage with Twin Distribution Deals


NanoInk has tapped two distributors to sell its nanofabrication platforms in the Asia Pacific region.

West Perth, Australia-based SciTech will sell NanoInk's products to customers in Australia and New Zealand, while Singapore-based Gaia Science will represent NanoInk in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. Both distribution agreements are exclusive.

SciTech and Gaia will sell and market the firm's NLP 2000 System, a desktop nanofabrication platform that allows users to create custom engineered and functionalized surfaces using NanoInk's Dip Pen Nanolithography technology. They will also distribute its benchtop DPN 5000 System for nanopatterning.

Oliver Yeh, NanoInk's general manager of the Asia Pacific region, in a statement noted Gaia Science's "established presence within NanoInk's target customer base in Southeast Asia," as well as SciTech's "understanding and expertise with imaging systems."

The new deals have expanded NanoInk's business into new markets in the region. Yeh is based in Taiwan, and the company has distributors in India, China, Japan, and Korea.
