Definiens Announces Expansion to North America

Definiens AG, a leader in advanced image intelligence solutions,
announced today the opening of a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary,
Definiens Inc., which closely follows the company’s global expansion
plan. This momentous growth is also due to an increased demand for
Definiens’ products and solutions, as well as part of an effort to
continue the high level of services and support that Definiens’
customers have come to expect and appreciate. Additionally, the U.S.
and European offices have been undergoing an increase in staff in order
to support the growing demand for the new products and solutions.


To better serve its customers Definiens will open offices in Boston
(Massachusetts) and Boulder (Colorado). “Definiens is experiencing
significant growth in the U.S. for its image intelligence software
solutions and services,” said Thomas Heydler, Definiens’ CEO. “Our
expansion into the United States is a major step in developing our
international business. A U.S.-based branch will enable us to expand
our presence in our most important market and demonstrates our
commitment to our North American customers.”


Definiens is now increasingly focusing on developing the
next generation of image intelligence solutions such as for
high-content screening, histopathology, and diagnostics in the Life
Sciences market, and for urban analysis, forestry and military/security
purposes in the Geospatial market,” Heydler adds. “Our new facilities
in the U.S. will give us access to ‘best of the best’ scientific and
business communities in one of the world’s most innovative areas.
Furthermore we will be able to strengthen our current partnerships and
be closer to our growing base of North American clients.


The Company will retain its main offices in Munich (Germany) which houses its R&D and the European operations.
