We are further extending our position in the United States

Group will continue on that strategic route. The geographical
proximity of SIMONA PMC to our subsidiary Boltaron
and the operational management of the company by our
senior executive team headed by Dean Li as the company's
new CEO will create synergies," said Wolfgang

operate as an independent entity under the SIMONA
