Gleason Corporation is pleased to announce the opening of Gleason Sales (Korea), its new sales and service operation in Seoul, South Korea. The new company will sell and service the full range of Gleason products working in cooperation with local representatives to cover the entire South Korean market.
John J. Perrotti, president and chief executive officer of Gleason Corporation, commented, “Gleason has for decades served the South Korean market exclusively through representatives. We have decided given the size and the importance of this market that we should have more of a direct presence. The advanced technology we sell requires significant training and support and as such we believe with our own office we will be able to better serve our customers. Most of the staff in our new company has transitioned from our former representative so we are confident we will continue to support existing customers without interruption while creating new business opportunities. We are excited about our enhanced potential to provide Total Gear Solutions to the South Korean market.”
