Mini-Circuits has opened a regional sales office in Shin-Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan to expand service to customers in Japan and South Korea, appointing Thomas Joyce as the regional sales director. Joyce has 33 years working in electronics design, management and marketing and brings extensive knowledge of the Japanese and South Korean markets.

Ted Heil, Mini-Circuits’ president, said, “Part of our mission to be the world’s preferred supplier of RF and microwave products means ensuring we consistently deliver world-class service to our customers everywhere across the globe. Under Thomas’ direction, the Yokohama office will augment the efforts of our channel partners in Japan and South Korea as a direct link to Mini-Circuits at the local level.”

The new regional office will work with Mini-Circuits’ local sales representatives and distributors, providing additional resources to grow the company’s business and address customer needs.
