Thermo Electron Corporation (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in analytical instruments, announced the opening of a new customer service and demonstration laboratory center in Shanghai, China. The 43,000 square foot (4,000 square meters) facility will also house sales and marketing personnel, and technical support and service for this region.

Over the past two years, Thermo has executed a strategy for long-term growth in Asia by expanding its local resources. The company dramatically increased its footprint in China by opening a new manufacturing center of excellence, acquiring additional distribution capabilities and expanding its sales, marketing and services personnel. China has now become the second largest market worldwide for Thermo, representing over 5% of Thermo's overall revenue. This new, state-of-the-art customer demonstration center complements
Thermo's commercial offices located throughout the region, including Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Kunming, Chengdu and Shenyang.

"With our infrastructure now firmly grounded and established within China, it is time for Thermo to focus more acutely on broadening our interaction with customers in this region, offering them the opportunity to learn more about our complete laboratory solutions through hands-on operation," said Marc N. Casper, senior vice president of Thermo Electron. "This new demo center represents yet another major Thermo investment in China, providing applications experts, a full inventory of our instruments, and a customer support operation to enable even more direct access to our customers in China and throughout all of Asia."

Customers visiting the new facility will have the opportunity to see end-to-end laboratory solutions and use products in a variety of applications, including sample preparation, mass spectrometry, chromatography, elemental analysis, molecular process, informatics and temperature control. There is also a dedicated training area designed to assist customers with seeing new products and learning new techniques.

In December of 2004, Thermo announced the expansion of its manufacturing operations in China with the introduction of a new 90,000 square foot facility that increased manufacturing capacity in Shanghai by more than four times. Thermo products manufactured at the site include atomic absorption instruments, microplate readers and sample preparation equipment, and will soon include metal detection and environmental instruments. This facility now serves as a center for Asian operations, and is becoming a central point for supply chain management and logistics for Thermo worldwide.
