MARCH 2–MILPITAS, Calif.–In an effort to meet the growing global demand for contamination control monitoring in manufacturing environments, Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions has expanded operations into Amsterdam, Holland.
The expansion is the site for the company’s first direct European operations, and it is a move that will also serve the “Benelux,” the fruit of a 1958 economic treaty between Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
Martin Derks, a long time contamination control industry professional, has been named operations manager for the new regional operation serving the Benelux.
“The Benelux region has shown significant growth in high tech and pharmaceutical manufacturing operations in the last several years,” says Adam Giandomenico, company president. “Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions has seen that as a tremendous opportunity to meet the needs of a growing market.
In addition to the new Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions direct office serving the Benelux, the company maintains direct sales and service facilities in China, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand, in addition to its U.S operations. The remainder of business worldwide is conducted through an extensive network of factory trained sales and service agents, distributors, and representatives.
