Dilas to sell directly in France

DILAS, the diode laser company, announces effective May 1, 2016, it will serve the French market for high-power diode laser components directly from its headquarters in Mainz, Germany.

With rapid growth, the guidance to sell directly is based on the increased demand for high-power diode laser components in France and the need for direct technical support within the French market.

DILAS’ Director of Sales, Dr. Jörg Neukum, stated: “This new strategy allows customers a direct channel to DILAS’ products and its technical teams, as well as it allows us to be closer to market needs and trends.”

To support the change, Dr. Florian Lenhardt of DILAS Diodenlaser GmbH will be responsible for driving DILAS’ components sales strategies in France.
