(Nanowerk News) A leading supplier of electron microscopes and scientific instrumentation, JEOL USA (Peabody, Mass.) and its parent company JEOL Ltd. (Akishima, Japan) have opened an office in Sao Paulo, Brasil to support its growing installed base there, and have relocated the personnel to a new facility this month.
JEOL has enjoyed a 40-year history in Brasil, with the past 30 being through its agent, Fugiwara Enterprises I.C., Ltda. As the number of JEOL customers has continued to grow in the region, the company decided to provide direct support through JEOL service engineers, administrative, and sales personnel.
