USA location of InfraTec celebrates its 10th anniversary
Ten years ago, InfraTec opened its first international branch. What began in 2007 in Grapevine within close proximity to the Dallas metropolis of millions, has been continued for several years by employees a few miles east in Plano. "At that time, we approached the project very cautiously. Today, we are talking here about a key cornerstone of our sales strategy," says Matthias Heinze, the Managing Partner of the Infrared Sensor Division. "In the meantime, we have branches in China and Great Britain. As a result, the international orientation of our company has developed into a real success story over the past ten years."
Its beginning marks the foundation of the subsidiary InfraTec infrared LLC. The reasons for going to the State of Texas are just as relevant today as they were ten years ago. North America in general and the USA in particular rank among the world's largest markets for infrared sensors. Important partners are based there, who are responsible for a large portion of the total annual turnover of the company, which is becoming increasingly international. Through the location in the State of Texas these benefit from the comprehensive service that InfraTec's partners use and appreciate worldwide. Customer requests can be responded to quickly and purposefully. Furthermore, the logistic support can be organised far more easily for the Dresden company. The same applies to the participation in important trade fairs and conferences at local level.
The range of tasks of the InfraTec infrared LLC increased once again in 2015. For roughly two years, the subsidiary company has also coordinated the sales of the thermographic systems.
