Sanyo restructures European operation



4 October 2006 — Watford (UK): Sanyo Speechtek is to cease trading as a separate company in January and become a branch of Sanyo Bureau Electronica Europa, which is headquartered in Munich, Germany.


The restructure follows Sanyo’s review of its existing business and is part of the company’s global strategy to concentrate on pan-European business.


Business functions such as order processing will be transferred to the German office, while the existing warehouse operation and after-sales service will remain in the UK.


Graham Davis will continue to drive the UK business and becomes a director of Sanyo Bureau with responsibility for the European dictation business.
