B&W Tek (Newark, Delaware) has opened a new European office in Lübeck, Germany (near Hamburg). The optical spectroscopy and laser systems company has appointed Daniel Barchewitz as the managing director of the new office.
'Our new facility in northern Germany will allow us to better capitalise on the ever-growing European market,' says Dr Sean Wang, CEO of B&W Tek. 'This new entity will be fully staffed to provide the necessary marketing, technical sales and engineering support to our existing channels and distributors as well as develop new business relationships in the area.'
Daniel Barchewitz, the new managing director, has more than ten years of experience in the photonics industry, with an outstanding track record in sales and product management at companies such as Polytec and Coherent Lübeck. He not only brings an extensive knowledge of laser and spectrometer technology and applications, but also a deep understanding of the European market.
With the addition of this new office, B&W Tek now has facilities in four countries on three continents.
