High-tech microscopy company opens in Pleasanton

New team being assembled to serve West Coast customers

by Jeb Bing

Tescan has opened a new demonstration facility in Pleasanton as part of its expansion of its electron microscopy scanning technology business.

A leading provider of scientific instrumentation and known for its work with researchers, Tescan customizes applications to fit specific needs.

Established in 1991, Tescan has delivered more than 1,000 electron microscopes and focused ion beam workstations around the world.

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pa., the company is recruiting a team of professionals with extensive experience in charged particle microscopy to support its new Pleasanton office that will serve the West Coast. The team includes senior applications specialist Mark Betts, who joins the Pleasanton office with more than 20 years of experience, and service support manager Ted Allison, who previously worked at Hitachi's office here.

Rounding off the core West Coast team is regional sales manager Drew Erwin, who has over 20 years of experience in the charged particle field.

"TESCAN USA has been fortunate to experience over 100% growth this year, making us the fastest growing charged particle company in North America," said General Manager Tony Owens. "It makes sense to expand our support and presence to the West Coast of North America."

The new office is located at 5933 Coronado Lane.
