Microvec to Open European Office
Microvec, one of the leaders in the field of fluid mechanics, has opened a new office in Europe. Microvec Sp. z o.o. began operating in June 2022 in Poland.
Microvec Poland was created after having absorbed assets of LLE Jena GmbH, a manufacturer of lasers from Germany. The company is currently focused on continuing the production of lasers, including the double pulse lasers used in Microvec Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) systems. Microvec Poland will be also providing sales and technical support for PIV systems in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The company will be managed by Sergey Babichev, a veteran of the laser industry with almost twenty years of experience designing and manufacturing lasers.
“The relocation of the company to Poland will allow us to continue producing world class lasers in a stable and a more cost-effective environment.” Said Sergey. “In addition, the tie-up with Microvec, and adding PIV systems, will give us a new opportunity to expand in Europe.”
Microvec plans to continue its expansion throughout Europe with an extra focus on providing Europe with affordable PIV lasers and advanced PIV systems. “With laser production,Microvec Poland will give us our own affordable lasers to improve our PIV systems,” added Wojciech Majewski, Managing Director of Microvec. “Opening an office in the EU will help us serve our local customers better than before by being closer to them and in the same time zone.”
