Pleora Technologies Opens European Office in Copenhagen, Denmark

Ottawa, Canada - 06 June 2013 - Pleora Technologies has established a European office — located in Copenhagen, Denmark — to better serve its customers and channel partners located in Europe and the Middle East. Pleora’s European expansion follows on the recent addition of a dedicated sales engineering resource, based in Shanghai, responsible for assisting product integrations in China and Taiwan. Pleora is also planning a significant expansion of its headquarters location in Ottawa, Canada, during the latter half of 2013.

Leading Pleora’s European office will be Gunnar Jonson, a sales and marketing executive with over 20 years’ experience in the vision industry, working with manufacturers of cameras, sensors, and components used in automated inspection systems. Mr. Jonson previously established the first European office for DALSA Corporation, was responsible for Product Management and Marketing at camera manufacturer JAI A/S, and most recently served as Marketing Director at Copenhagen Sensor Technology A/S, a manufacturer of cameras for military and defense applications.

“Pleora has a great reputation in Europe”, says Mr. Jonson. “With its outstanding track record in Europe, and its robust product line, I’m excited about becoming part of the team”.

For more than a decade, Pleora has enjoyed great success in the EMEA region”, says Rudi Rincker, Vice President of Business Development at Pleora Technologies. “The opening of our European office will allow us to further strengthen our relationships with our channel partners, and enhance our contributions to our customers’ success”.
