With effect from the second quarter of this year, Markus Thinnes has resigned his position as representative director at IST East Asia. His tasks have been taken over by Yasushi Katsuta who is now responsible for sales and service of ITL and IST in Japan.
IST East Asia was founded in 2014, and the Japanese subsidiary of the British company, Integration Technology Ltd., has been operating since 2002 with Yasushi Katsuta (at the helm). For both IST and ITL, Japan is an increasingly important market. For strategic reasons, the METZ company group therefore decided to be represented in the future with one joint organisation on-site.
In the course of the change in management, IST East Asia has moved to the former premises of Integration Technology Ltd. The office in the city of Fuchu is still located in the Tokyo metropolitan area.
