Primera Technology, Inc. Launches Primera Asia Pacific



    New office to support increasing sales of Primera's products in the Asia
Pacific region

    PLYMOUTH, MINN., September 5 /CNW/ - Primera Technology, Inc., a leading
developer and manufacturer of CD, DVD and Blu-ray(TM) disc publishing
equipment and color label printers, today announced that it is expanding its
global reach with the opening of a new Asia Pacific sales and support office
in Hong Kong.

    Primera Asia Pacific will be led by Callum Hingston, Managing Director.
Mr. Hingston has previously sold Primera's products as an Authorized
Distributor for nine years. In his new role, he and his staff will be
providing sales and support for Primera's distribution partners and end-user
customers throughout the Asia Pacific region. A local warehouse has also been
established to provide immediate access to Primera's full range of equipment,
consumable supplies and spare parts.

    Primera Asia Pacific's primary markets will include Australia, New
Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea and
Indonesia.

    "We have sold our products throughout Asia Pacific for almost a decade,"
said Mark D. Strobel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Primera. "But
in the past several years, our business in the region has grown substantially.
We believe the time is right to make this substantial investment and
commitment to our customers in these rapidly expanding markets."

    Primera Europe, located in Wiesbaden, Germany, is responsible for sales
and support of Primera's customers in Europe and Scandinavia. It has been in
operation for seven years. The establishment of Primera Asia Pacific adds to
Primera's commitment in the global market to respond to customer needs.

    "Primera's Bravo-Series CD/DVD and Blu-ray disc publishers and LX-Series
Color Label Printers are already the best-selling and most recognized brand in
the world," said Callum Hingston, Managing Director of Primera Asia Pacific.
"Now, our Authorized Distributors and end-users in Asia Pacific will benefit
even more with localized product availability, lower shipping costs and a
dedicated customer service staff that is available in the same or similar time
zones."
