Sarine Opens New Galaxy® Inclusion Mapping Service Centre in China
Sarine Opens New Galaxy® Inclusion Mapping Service Centre in China. Sarine Technologies Ltd is pleased to announce that it has opened a new Galaxy®service centre in the Sha Wan Jewellery Park, in the Panyu District of Guangzhou. The new service centre will provide scanning and mapping of internal inclusions in rough diamonds with Sarine’s proprietary Galaxy®technology.
The Guangzhou Galaxy®service centre is the ninth, following those opened between 2010 and 2012 in India (Surat and Mumbai), Israel, Belgium, Russia, South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. This service centre is operated by D-Authority, a local business venture that has been providing Sarine with professional pre- and post-sales services for 15years. Sarine is confident this new service centre will be able to offer excellent and timely rough diamond scanning, planning and additional services to the diamond industry in Panyu.
The service centre was opened at the invitation of the Guangzhou Diamond Exchange, as part of broad government actions to boost the productivity of the local diamond trade. The service centre is located in the Administrative Services Building, adjacent to the Diamond Exchange, the National Gemological Testing Centre (NGTC) and other key service providers for the diamond industry.
In addition to internal inclusion mapping services, the new service centre will also provide rough diamond planning services with Sarine’s latest equipment (DiaExpert® / DiaMark® Z Eye), proportion and symmetry analyses with both the DiaMension® HD and the newest Axiom version, and inscription services, with more to follow later, based on demand.
David Block, CEO of the Group commented, “It has been a long time coming, but with new demand in China from smaller industry players, for whom the acquisition of a Galaxy®system is non-economical, it was only appropriate that we offer our customers there to access to the unmatched Galaxy® technology. We believe the opening of the service centre in Guangzhou will benefit the diamond industry in China.”
