Establishment of Local Office Branch Sets the Stage for Strong Growth in South Korea
September 2016 – San Diego, CA. – Vigor Systems announces the opening of a branch office in South Korea, enabling the continued growth of Vigor’s services and product platform in the Asia region. This office will provide technical support and new products to independent cable operators, Korean broadcasters and program providers. In addition to local support of current customers, Vigor will focus on new product development to bolster market needs.
The new Seoul location represents Vigor’s ongoing strategic initiative to further expand into South Korean markets where the film and television industry has generated close to $6.8 billion in recent years. This ascent in revenue demonstrates South Korean content providers’ burgeoning influence on the international TV market.
“South Korea has a reputation as a leader in cutting edge technology and engineering,’ said Magnus Sorlander, CEO of Vigor Systems. “Our presence in South Korea spans over 15 years which makes us uniquely positioned to help support South Korea’s content delivery infrastructure. With our Korea office, it will be more efficient for us to ensure content is delivered from providers to distributors and managed by an expert support network.”
System engineers John Park and Chris Lee will be the local contacts at the Vigor Seoul office. Mr. Park has nearly 9 years of overall Information Technology experience and his certifications include Craftsman Information Equipment Operation (2012) and Network Advisor G2 (2012). He was also named Best Service Engineer in 2013 for the entire Korean cable industry by Daegu Purun, one of the largest independent cable operators in Korea. He received this honor for his exemplary service as a commercial insertion server engineer to Vigor’s Asia customers.
Mr. Lee has 7 years of overall Information Technology experience and has worked for a voice recording system company as a developer. He holds a certification in RFID-GL (2013). Both engineers have been instrumental to Vigor in assisting television stations and cable headend environments with setup and configuration of Vigor Advertio® products in RF and IP environments.
