Goodfellow, a leading global supplier of metals and materials for research and product design, has announced the expansion of sales and marketing activities in Japan, further broadening the company’s presence in the Far East.
Working with Intralink, a firm specialising in helping science and technology companies access and develop the Japanese and Chinese markets, Goodfellow is in the process of significantly increasing its penetration of the market for metals and materials for research, development and specialised manufacturing applications through strategic marketing activities and a network of non-exclusive distributors.
“As the world’s second largest economy, Japan is a tremendously important market for Goodfellow products and services,” says Stephen Aldersley, Goodfellow Managing Director ([email protected]). “With our comprehensive range of standard products, as well as our custom fabrication, finishing and prototyping services, Goodfellow is well positioned to work with the growing number of Japanese organisations seeking small quantities of metals and materials for their research and development activities.”
Japan is the second major market in the Far East where Goodfellow has increased its presence in recent years. In 2006, the company established the Shanghai Representative Office of Goodfellow Cambridge Ltd. (www.gutefu.cn) in China. In addition to UK and US offices, Goodfellow has offices in France and Germany.
