Fritsch Milling and Sizing, headquartered in Idar-Oberstein, Germany, has announced the opening of its first US subsidiary. Located in North Carolina, the new facility is said to be situated in a ‘Research Triangle’, close to numerous research institutes, established companies as well as renowned universities.
The establishment of a US subsidiary, Fritsch Milling and Sizing Inc., follows the creation of subsidiaries in Singapore, Russia, China and France. “For a long time we have been serving customers in the USA but in order to meet the demands of our customers in a growing market it was time to have a Fritsch branch directly in the US,” the company stated.
Melissa Fauth, President Fritsch USA, considers this an ideal environment for Fritsch. The new site has offices and a storage facility, as well as an applications laboratory stocked with numerous Fritsch instruments. In addition to introducing the range of Fritsch instruments, tests and sample grindings for customers can be conducted on site.
