Cambrios Technologies Corporation, a developer of nanowire-based solutions for the transparent and flexible conductor markets, today announced the establishment of its branch office in Tokyo, Japan, and the appointment of Takashi Murayama as Country Manager for Japan.
"We are seeing growth opportunities in Japan and are already shipping from our ClearOhmTM product line," said John LeMoncheck, Cambrios’ president and CEO. "Our newly created Japan office will support customers using our cost efficient transparent conductors in applications such as All-In-One computers and other touch screen enabled devices."
To oversee sales and distribution of Cambrios’ products in Japan, the company has named Takashi Murayama as its Country Manager. Prior to joining Cambrios, Murayama worked as country manager for various leading companies in the microprocessor, communications and nanotechnology industries, including Transmeta, Conexant Systems, Beceem Communications and Unidym. He also spent 19 years in sales and marketing management roles with Intel Japan. Murayama holds a Bachelors of Science degree in electrical engineering from Kagoshima University in Kagoshima, Japan.
Cambrios is known for its first product, its ClearOhm coating material, which produces a transparent, conductive film by wet processing with significantly higher optical and electrical performance than currently used materials such as indium tin oxide. Applications of ClearOhm coating material include transparent electrodes for touch screens, EMI shielding, OLED displays, e-paper, OLED lighting and thin film photovoltaics.
