With the opening of a new office in Pleasanton, Calif., JEOL USA, Inc. now offers easily accessible locations on both the East and West Coasts for applications, training, service and demonstration support. Headquartered in Peabody, Mass., JEOL is a supplier of electron microscopes for semiconductor, biological, material science, pharmaceutical, geological, and forensics research and analysis.

"In addition to providing equipment demonstrations and helping our customers with applications support, we will host training programs and local industry-related society meetings." The new 8,000-square-foot facility will house a demonstration/applications lab, the company's West Coast service center and parts warehouse, and a sales office.
