Basler opens Office in Japan

Ahrensburg, 28 September 2006 - Basler AG - leading provider of Vision Technology, the technology of artificial vision - is broadening its Asian activities by opening its own sales office in Japan. This is the fifth location the Ahrensburg high-tech company has in Asia, alongside its offices in Taiwan, Singapore, Shanghai and Korea. As Dietmar Ley, CEO of Basler AG emphasises, "Japan is the world’s biggest single market for image processing equipment which makes it a highly promising territory for our digital high-performance cameras. And Japanese customers especially appreciate it when the business partner has locally based sales and service offices."

More than 50% of Basler’s revenue last year was made in Asia, with particularly high demand for Basler’s high-end inspection systems and digital cameras coming from the Asian semiconductor and electronics industries.  Basler’s Asian customers are supported by a total of 28 sales and service staff, all of whom were recruited locally. The new bureau in Japan shall give Basler a foothold on a regional market in excess of EUR 3 billion. To give an idea of its magnitude: in 2005 the entire European image-processing market had an estimated value of EUR 2.7 billion. With its comprehensive product portfolio and the high quality of its cameras, Basler sees excellent prospects for leveraging the enormous potential of the market in the coming years. Its recent innovation campaign unveiled more than 40 new camera models which are best of the breed in terms of performance, compactness and the novel Gigabit Ethernet interfaces they deploy.

Basler shall showcase itself for the first time to a Japanese trade audience at the ITE 06 Vision Technology Exhibition to be held in early December this year in Yokohama. With around 20,000 visitors, last year’s exhibition was one of the major global events in the industry’s calendar.

Basler AG develops, produces and globally markets Vision Technology - the technology of artificial vision. Tailored to the specific needs of the flat screen, CD/DVD, rubber /elastomer and solar industries, its systems solutions are products of choice when it comes to optimising the efficiency and economic viability of manufacturing processes. In addition, the company also addresses industrial and non-industrial markets with its powerful and easy-to-integrate digital cameras.
