WATERLOO, ON-DALSA Corporation (Waterloo, ON, Canada), after having undertaken a careful study of the Asia-Pacific markets, has decided to establish a new business unit, DALSA Asia-Pacific, to focus and participate in these fast-emerging markets. DALSA Asia-Pacific will operate as a sales, support, and marketing unit that will work with the distributors in the Asia-Pacific region to promote the company's products. This new business unit will be headed by Keith Reuben as its president and will report directly to the CEO, Savvas Chamberlain. The unit will be entirely funded within existing budgets and targets for 2006.
Jim Roberts, executive vice president and general manager of Vision for Machines, will take over responsibility for the DALSA Coreco business unit, which will be combined with Vision for Machines to form DALSA Digital Imaging. The North American and European sales organizations will not change and will be operated as they are currently managed.
