New GERSTEL K.K. offices in Tokyo

Customer focused solutions
with a difference

Growing demand for GERSTEL Solutions over a number of years has also resulted in a steady growth in GERSTEL K.K. team members. In November 2011 GERSTEL K.K. became the fourth GERSTEL organization, after Germany, the U.S., and Switzerland, to move to new and larger offices. The benefit: significantly more room, better facilities, and a central location to provide the best possible support for our customers in terms of stock availability and customer focused solutions with advanced application support, a hallmark of the GERSTEL K.K. organization.

In 2004, six years after Dr. Manfred Schwarzer first moved to Tokyo to support the Japanese distributor Yokogawa Analytical Systems Inc., GERSTEL K.K. was founded. At that time, Dr. Schwarzer moved back to Germany to take up the key position of Software Development Manager, and Hirooki Kanda joined GERSTEL K.K. as General Manager.

Mr. Kanda and his team have further developed GERSTEL K.K. into an accepted brand and house-hold name in Japan for automated sample preparation and sample introduction. Based on a strong focus on solutions and applications, GERSTEL K.K. has produced solid and consistent year-on-year growth since it was founded. Among the customers are major global players in fields such as Automotive, Semiconductors, Flavor and Fragrance, Food and Beverage producers, as well as Pharmaceutical companies and water suppliers.

The customers are supported by an internationally renowned team of application scientists under the leadership of Dr. Nobuo Ochiai. Thanks to close ties and strong cooperation with international partners and scientists, all signs point to further growth for the GERSTEL organization.
