Imaging firm PCO AG of Kelheim, Germany, has opened its first sales office in Asia. After a startup phase in 2014, Murad Karmali, president of PCO Imaging Asia Ltd., has assumed strategic and operative responsibility for business in the region, working out of an office in Singapore. “The Asian markets are becoming increasingly important for PCO,” said the company’s founder and president, Dr. Emil Ott. “The growing level of demand increased the need for local representation.” Karmali has worked for PCO AG for many years, both in individual end-customer business and in OEM business with major customers. He is assisted by Sales Manager Dr. Jong Xiao, who focuses on service and support for the individual markets and the Chinese market in particular. Sales partners from India to Australia who previously received support from the company's Germany office will now be managed from the Singapore office. PCO develops scientific CMOS (sCMOS) and CCD cameras for scientific and industrial research. For more information, visit www.pco.de.
