CALGARY, Sept. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Imaging Dynamics Company Ltd. ("IDC" or the "Company") (TSX: IDL) a global leader in the high growth digital radiography (DR) equipment market, is excited to announce the incorporation of its Hong Kong subsidiary. Imaging Dynamics Company (Hong Kong) Limited ("IDC Hong Kong") is a wholly owned entity of Imaging Dynamics Company Limited ("IDC" or the "Company") based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Under the direction of new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. T. T. Lee, together with the Executive Management team, are pleased to report that since the announcement of the successful closing of its private placement in mid-July 2012, the Company has been working diligently toward a strategic growth plan to re-emerge as a leader in the competitive medical imaging market.
IDC Hong Kong will be a fully staffed business office structured to manage the increasing business in the target market of Asia Pacific. Under the direction of the IDC head office based in Canada, this new entity in Hong Kong will allow the Company to better respond and support the broad install base in this region and help drive the projected high growth strategy for this market segment by introducing new products and services.
Mr. T. T. Lee, IDC Chief Executive Officer commented on this development, "Many high tech manufacturing companies based in North America have moved their manufacturing to Asia Pacific for economic reasons. While this is a contributing factor to our decision, we expect this new office in Hong Kong to drive the development of new business for IDC and support its existing customers in the region." Lee continued, "I strongly believe this strategic move will provide significant benefits at all levels, supported by the current IDC Representative office in Beijing, China under the direction of Dr. Sidong Huang, Senior Vice President for IDC."
"It has been a long-term goal to launch strategic offices in target markets and together with the support of our new CEO, Mr. T. T. Lee, we now see a shift in the IDC business as the Company focuses on introducing new products and services for this high growth Asia Pacific region," commented Mr. Swapan Kakumanu, President and Chief Financial Officer of IDC. "At our Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held in July 2012, we communicated our plan to have a larger presence in the Asia Pacific region to grow market share and diversify with additional products and services. The establishment of IDC Hong Kong is the first step in that growth plan," stated Kakumanu.
The Company as a whole will continue to investigate new business opportunities as it focuses efforts on providing innovative technology to meet the growing needs of the global medical imaging market.
