LYON, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bal Seal Engineering, Inc. announced the opening of its new sales office in Lyon, France. Located in La Part-Dieu, the country’s second-largest business district and a major commercial gateway for Europe, the office opened its doors in March 2014 with the purpose of providing local support to the region.
“France is a strong economic driver in Europe and a very important market for Bal Seal Engineering,” says Wayne Young, the company’s sales director for Europe, adding that medical, automotive, and energy are among the key market segments for Bal Seal in France. “Opening a Bal Seal office in this region is part of our expansion strategy. It supports our continued growth and confirms our commitment to the French market and our French customers,” says Young.
Antoine Zervos, Bal Seal’s new territory sales manager for France, will be based in the Lyon office. “Zervos brings a wealth of experience in sales and marketing to the position as well as a strong technical background in high voltage switchgear and power transmission and distribution applications,” says Young. “His experience in applications for utilities required understanding the needs of the client, which is a perfect match with the Bal Seal sales model.”
Young notes that Bal Seal has already achieved significant sales growth in Europe, and that the opening of this office supports the company’s growing customer base. In 2013, the company opened a sales office in Germany, and in 2012, a sales office was opened in Prague, Czech Republic. Each of these offices will work closely with the company’s European headquarters, which is located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
