Raith China Co., Ltd. Grand Opening Ceremony
On August 31, 2017, Raith China Co., Ltd hosted a reception and ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its new branch office. The main mission of the new branch is to promote and provide service and support for all Raith products in China, as well as entering into promising joint development projects with Chinese researchers.
Prof. Yang Fuhua from the Institute of Semiconductors CAS, Prof. Han Xiufeng from the Institute of Physics CAS, and special guest Prof. Harald Fuchs from Münster University delivered welcome addresses at the opening event.
Prof. Zhu Xiaobo from University of Science and Technology gave a brief introduction to his work on quantum computing devices based on superconductor technologies. Then Prof. Chen Baochen from the Institute of Microelectronics CAS warmly welcomed Raith China’s staff members. He described the new branch as the next logical step for Raith to continue its success story in the Asian market - a story that started nearly 20 years ago, when Dr. Zhou Xiangqian founded GermanTech Co., Ltd to promote German high-tech products in China.
GermanTech and Raith have now formed the joint venture of Raith China Co., Ltd., which is starting out with 11 employees from the operations of Germantech and Raith BV China.
