March 28, 2008, Singapore--Carl Zeiss, an international group of companies in the optical and optoelectronic industry, officially opened the Carl Zeiss Advanced Imaging Centre Singapore, a world-first centre that offers customers the opportunity to view and experience the full range of Carl Zeiss' micro and nano imaging solutions.
According to Board member of Carl Zeiss AG and president and CEO of Carl Zeiss SMT AG, Hermann Gerlinger, the opening of the facility at the German Centre reflects Carl Zeiss' commitment to expand its business in Singapore and Asia Pacific.

"Carl Zeiss is very pleased to be working closely with Singapore's Economic Development Board (EDB) to further strengthen its footprint in Singapore and Asia Pacific. Our company is world-renowned for its state-of-the-art imaging solutions that are highly critical for the industrial, bioscience, and life science sectors to develop quality products and successful medical research. Singapore, with a strong foundation in engineering and biosciences, is therefore a strategic location for Carl Zeiss to grow its business in Asia Pacific and bring its solutions closer to its customers in the region," said Gerlinger.
