“So much of what we do today is focused on helping our customers realize growth within their hearing healthcare practices,” said
Jan Metzdorff, President at Unitron. “Establishing a company office will not only allow us to grow our share of the Brazilian market, but will strengthen our position to support existing customers in their pursuit of business success.”
