Rapid growth in Europe and Asia has spurred nanoanalytical microscopy systems maker WiTec GmbH of Ulm, Germany, to open regional offices in Spain and Japan. Head of the Japan office, which is in Kanagawa Science Park, is Dr. Keiichi Nakamoto, a scanning probe microscopy veteran of more than 20 years. The Spain office, in Barcelona, will primarily serve the Spanish and Portuguese markets. Area manager and office head Dr. Elena Bailo is a former member of the WiTec service and support team. Both offices will provide sales operations, pre- and post-sales technical support and product demonstrations.
