2005-09-28 Fibrenetix Opens For Business In Silicon Valley


West Sussex, UK – September 28, 2005 - FIBRENETIX, leading European storage systems manufacturer announce the launch of Fibrenetix USA Inc in San Jose, California.


The USA move follows recent subsidiary launches in Germany and The Republic of Ireland – and adds to operations in Spain and France.


Announcing the opening of the US operation Fibrenetix CEO Jes Nagel said: “We are seeing solid growth, above the storage industry norm, and we expect that pattern to continue.  The launch of Fibrenetix USA Inc. and our plans to open a further subsidiary in Japan in 2006 are key strategic moves in our mission to become a significant global player in the storage market.”


He added: “We have experienced strong sales in the States already this year including contracts with NASA, UCLA and Banner Health Inc - so this American venture is a natural progression for us.  We predict that 50% of our turnover will come from the U.S marketplace in the next two years.”


Alan Johnson who joins Fibrenetix as VP of Business Development will head the Silicon Valley operation.  Johnson, a well-known figure in the storage industry, is a former director of the Fibre Channel Industry Association Europe. He is an expert with over 20 years experience in the sector at System Industries, Eurologic, Adaptec and Infortrend.


He said: “I am delighted with this new challenge. My first job will be to build a first class sales and technical support team and establish streamlined logistics facilities to ensure short delivery times to the market.”


Danish-born Nagel, who pioneered IDE technology and IDE RAID and is considered a visionary figure in the storage arena, has timed the U.S launch to coincide with the announcement of two key product innovations.


Qubex is a new workstation RAID system targeting the broadcast, post production and digital imaging industries, providing up to 3 Terabytes of storage.


The benchmark E1 high performance 8 Terabyte RAID system, complete with unparalleled data protection, replaceable SmartLCD display, optimal cooling and virtually vibration-free environment, sets new standards for RAID storage systems.
