SAN DIEGO--()--congatec, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, is widening its sales presence in Australia and New Zealand with the opening of a new subsidiary in Queensland. Following on the heels of last month’s office opening in Japan, congatec is now directly represented with six offices in four continents – North America (USA), Europe (Germany and Czech Republic), Asia (Taiwan and Japan), and Australia.
“I see big potential for congatec in the Australian market, in particular the gaming, agricultural equipment, traffic control and medical technology sectors, where congatec products are an excellent fit”
Alvin Tan has been appointed the country manager for Australia and New Zealand. Alvin brings extensive experience to the company in establishing and managing distribution/partner channels and technical operations delivery networks in dynamic, fast paced and rapidly changing engineering-based business environments. He joins congatec after a successful career at Luminex Corporation, where he managed commercial operations and was instrumental in further establishing the company’s presence in local and global marketplaces.
In his new position, Alvin will be responsible for developing and expanding congatec’s presence in Australia and New Zealand. In addition, he will ensure that congatec customers in Australia and New Zealand are provided with industry-leading sales, marketing and technical service and support.
“I see big potential for congatec in the Australian market, in particular the gaming, agricultural equipment, traffic control and medical technology sectors, where congatec products are an excellent fit,” says Alvin, and continues outlining his goals: “I am planning to increase local awareness of congatec products and gain the confidence of a much wider customer base. As a first step to underline our greater engagement in the region, congatec will be exhibiting at the upcoming ElectroneX show, September 12–13, 2012, in Sydney.”
“We are very happy that we have been able to win Alvin for this new position,” says congatec CEO, Gerhard Edi. “So far congatec has been selling into the Australian market through a network of resellers. In line with our strong sales performance and ongoing expansion strategy the time is right to establish a direct sales presence as well. This will help us to better service customers in Australia and New Zealand.”
