Using these instruments, SST will develop and propose on-target analytical methods to satisfy diversified needs of customers involved in R&D and quality control, to offer excellent customer support.

SST will work to increase Shimadzu's share in these markets while offering consumables and after sales services with the aim of increasing Shimadzu's sales in Taiwan to $13 million in 2017 which is approximately three times 2012's sales of $4.5 million.
