"China has always been one of the most vibrant markets for FalconStor and has immense growth potential," stated FalconStor CEO, Gary Quinn. "Under the leadership of John Yang, the China region has maintained long-standing and steady growth. During the year, we have revamped FalconStor's corporate strategy, branding, and business structure. Our growth target will be to provide integrated data services to our customers, and the China region is one of the key regions in which we will focus this new strategy. Moving to our new office in Beijing demonstrates FalconStor's commitment to the Chinese market, business structure, and to the Asia-Pacific region as a whole. We are excited to provide Chinese customers and partners with even better products and services. We have great hope for the Chinese market and tremendous confidence in our Chinese team!"
Co-located in the company's new Beijing office, FalconStor's China Regional Training Center officially opens today as well.

FalconStor's mission is to help customers receive a better technical and product experience and help partners raise their sales and technical support capabilities.
