Dionex Corporation has expanded its international sales and distribution capabilities by opening a wholly owned subsidiary, Dionex Ireland Limited, in Dublin, Ireland. The addition brings to 16 the total number of Dionex direct sales subsidiaries operating outside the U.S.
"Europe accounted for about 40% of the company's sales in fiscal 2006," said René Trost, Dionex Vice President of Sales & Service, Europe. "With unique challenges and growth opportunities in each European location, the addition of Dionex Ireland leverages our ability to fully address the Irish market."
Dionex now sells directly through its subsidiaries in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands (Benelux), Switzerland, and the U.K. The company also recently opened Customer Support Centers, including applications laboratories, to provide industry-specific expertise in centralized locations in Europe, North America, and Asia.
