Sunnyvale, CA – October 30, 2009 – Onda Corporation, a leading producer of ultrasound measurement instrumentation, announced an agreement with S&V Samford for distribution of its products to medical device manufacturing firms in mainland China, as well as all customers in the Hong Kong area.
Onda's highly successful presence in China was pioneered by Swedish ALK Trade and Marketing for the government and academic sectors, and with this alliance Onda expands its support to the commercial and industrial market.
"To be successful in China it is essential to have partners that know their market very well, and that is certainly the case of S&V Samford and ALK. The public sector and the private sectors in China do business in very distinct ways, and we are very fortunate to count on these partnerships to address each specific area", said Dr. Claudio Zanelli, CEO of Onda Corporation. “As the leader in ultrasound measurements, Onda continuously seeks strategic alliances to best serve its clients who need measurement solutions to develop and qualify their medical devices. The S&V team has established a strong network within the Chinese medical community and we look forward to a long-lasting partnership that will help accelerate our client’s development efforts with confidence, as well as meeting stringent regulatory requirements.”
S&V founder and managing director, Mr. Tom Ho, comments “We are excited to partner with Onda. They have established themselves as the de facto standard in ultrasound measurements through a history of successful collaborations with major medical device manufacturers. Ultrasound applications, such as HIFU and imaging, continue to grow in China, and this relationship will connect our customers with Onda’s broad range of products and services.”
