Nihon Kohden Corporation announced that it establishes sales subsidiary in Dubai, Nihon Kohden Middle East FZE, aiming to expand the market across the Middle East and Africa which is one of the major emerging markets. Operations will commence in October 2012.

In Dubai, Middle East representative office had conducted sales activities through local agencies. Middle East and Africa has shown economic growth and the medical equipment market is expected to expand. Accordingly, we establish this direct sales office in order to expand operations in Middle East. It will perform sales and service operations with regional distributors with the aim of enhancing brand image and providing tailored customer services.
