Furthermore, with the establishment of the new office in Hong Kong, OMNIKEY is in the position to better support the supply to our world-wide OEM customers at their preferred sourcing location. Worldwide reach is an integral part of our client relations strategy as our company has evolved to become a global player and our business has experienced continuous growth throughout the past years. After the opening of the US office, Asia was clearly the next step in extending the local reach of our sales and client support infrastructure. With the Hong Kong office, we are closer to our partners, distributors and customers; being in the neighborhood allows us to develop stronger relationships and to serve them locally, plus its always nice to have technical support right around the corner.
