I am off to a flying start and look forward to working with new and existing customers in the region. We will participate as an exhibitor at all the important trade shows in 2014 starting with DEGRO in Düsseldorf”, says Radu Pintea, Business Director of RaySearch Germany GmbH.
Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, comments: “We have been active in Germany for almost five years since WPE in Essen became the very first RayStation® customer in 2009. Over the years we have supported the German-speaking market from Stockholm. As we now see an increasing demand from the region it is time to increase our presence and I am very happy to welcome Radu Pintea to RaySearch. With his extensive experience he will be instrumental to expand and support our growing customer base in the region.”
