Holm wishes to focus his expertise on further developing Denmark‘s Shimadzu office: ‘Denmark is an important location for the growth sectors of healthcare, the environment and science. Our systems can deliver important benefits and drive developments. The establishment of the Shimadzu office in Denmark has already significantly improved links with the Danish market. We wish to intensify these relationships over the coming years and expand them across the entire Scandinavian market together with our colleagues in Norway and Sweden.’

Standing behind Joachim Holm and his aims is a 15-strong team, which is on hand to assist customers in the areas of sales and service, training and application support.
