JPK announces the opening of a direct sales office in France

Berlin | Posted on December 7th, 2010

As JPK continues to offer better applications and service support to its users, the company has decided to open an office in France. They have appointed Dr. Anne Duprat as sales manager to run the offices in the rue de Rennes in the centre of Paris.

Dr. Duprat comes with extensive experience in world of scanning probe microscopy, SPM. She graduated with a first degree in cellular and molecular biology from Luminy Marseilles University before completing her PhD in the CEA of Cadarache. Her research focused on translation initiation. She also held a post doctoral position in molecular biology and genetics at CNB Madrid. In looking forward to working with JPK, Dr. Duprat says "I have been very impressed with the quality and robustness of instruments provided by JPK. I like the way they have developed such a dedicated product line where they have looked at the experimental needs of life scientists. Furthermore, I have been working with the JPK Team for over five years and I have experienced their excellent applications support first hand."

Dr. Gerd Behme, JPK's General Sales Manager commented, "Having worked with Anne as a member of our former distributors, LOT-Oriel, I know that she will bring excellent experience of the needs of customers in France. The French market for nanotechnology solutions in the life sciences continues to grow and we realise it was time to open our own offices to be more responsive to local needs."

The opening of the French office continues JPK's mission to provide top levels of support to users worldwide. This follows the opening of offices in the UK, Japan and Singapore in the last two years.
