Founded in 1949, JEOL (Japan Electron Optics Laboratory) is a global leader in the manufacture of microscopes and other scientific and metrological instruments.
Due to intensified price competition, a decrease in demand, the maturity of the electron microscope market, and the extension of business into the semiconductor and industrial equipment markets, JEOL recognized the need for a streamlined information environment and effective use of the intellectual capital engineers held in their own heads.
