To step up further its Asian presence, thermal profiling solutions vendor SolderStar eyes Suzhou, China as the location for its first dedicated office in Asia. The facility will be located in the Science and Industry Park. Josan Wu, area sales manager for Asia, will head the facility.

"China has seen substantial growth in its manufacturing industry over the last few years, and we recognize the importance of harnessing this growth," said Mark Stansfield, SolderStar's managing director.

At present, 30 percent of SolderStar's global sales come from Asia and the company predicts that this will grow over the next few years. The company will offer OEMs and EMS players that have established their manufacturing facilities in Asian with its range of thermal profiling hardware and software.

"We aim to increase our Asia sales by 50 percent within 2 years, and will be investing in our Asia infrastructure and resources to achieve this," said Stansfield.

Adds Wu, "This is an exciting time for the Asian electronics industry. At SolderStar, we have particular expertise in helping companies implement lead-free technology as part of their thermal processes. With RoHS demands becoming prominent in China, our expertise in this area will definitely be beneficial to locally-based manufacturers in the years to come."
