July 6, 2007 -- Zyvex, a molecular nanotechnology company based in Richardson, Texas, has hired Randy Schussler as general manager of its Zyvex Instruments LLC team. Zyvex Instruments commercializes nanotechnology to address real-world applications with high growth potential. Schussler has 20' years experience leading the growth of high-technology companies. This new position follows directly on the announcement of Zyvex's split into four companies: Zyvex Instruments, Zyvex Performance Materials, Zyvex Labs, and Zyvex Asia.
"Our company has always had a reputation for delivering results," said Zyvex founder Jim Von Ehr. "Restructuring the company into four units will allow us to leverage our strong technical position and focus on individual products, markets, customers, and new technologies."
The company's flagship product, the Zyvex nProber, is an 8-positioner nanomanipulator system designed and optimized to electrically probe sub-100 nanometer features on the most advanced semiconductor devices.
