After successfully running business in Italy for 36 years, it was time to step up the game. We are proud to announce that METOS Italia Srl was born on March 19th, 2021. It will work as the main Pessl Instruments representative in Italy and will enable greater freedom in the market, along with the possibility to increase METOS’ territorial coverage, support the growth plan and strengthen the brand position in the market.
If anything, year 2021 will mark the year in which Pessl Instruments team has grown significantly and has had the opportunity to welcome wonderful people. Puneet Singh considers himself a lifetime student. His passion is to contribute to global sustainability goals and create societal impact. He loves traveling, music, spiritual pursuit, spending time with his family, and buys more books than he can read.
The industry in which we are active and present requires expert knowledge. Only with proper professionals on our team can we be confident when it comes to offering speciality services and equipment to our customers. This is why we are happy to announce that our Product Management team will be additionally strengthened with Caroline Boscarino Arab, the new Map & satellite products, GIS/software and Soil Moisture expert.
The Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica, is one of the worst invasive pests of North America. Costs to control the pest in the US exceed $450 million per year. The beetle was detected near Milano in 2014 and is now starting to spread in Europe. Together with 12 other partners, Pessl Instruments joined an IPM-Popillia project to address the problem and develop a solution for this pressing problem.
