Vision-Sciences Launches Authorized Repair Center For Europe

ORANGEBURG, N.Y., Dec. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vision-Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:VSCI), a leading provider of unique flexible endoscopic products utilizing its proprietary sterile disposable EndoSheath ® technology, today announced the full launch of the Company's official and authorized fiber and video endoscope repair center for Europe through an exclusive agreement with Rescope, a Netherlands-based facility dedicated to the technical management and repair of endoscopes.

"With our rapid growth and success in Europe, it is no longer feasible to service and manage our overseas clients from the U.S. This exclusive agreement with Rescope, a reliable and well-recognized professional repair partner, ensures we are able to cost-effectively meet the needs of our growing European customer base, expediting repairs while ensuring quality control," said Howard Zauberman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vision-Sciences. "Our expanded centrally-located service facility will provide front-and-center expert service to our European customers, while supporting our current network of 22 distributors in 16 countries and enabling our future expansion on the continent."

Under the terms of the three-year agreement, which commenced in December 2011, Rescope is now authorized to repair the full line of Vision-Sciences endoscopes, the 4000 Series of fiber optic flexible endoscopes and the 5000 Series of video flexible endoscopes, using Vision-Sciences-certified manufacturer's parts, processes and quality standards.  Rescope is ISO 9001 certified and recently completed a nine-month infrastructure building, training and validation period before becoming fully authorized by Vision-Sciences.

"We are excited to partner with Vision-Sciences," said Petra Benink, Managing Director, Rescope, a company with nearly 20 years in the repair business that meets the most stringent safety requirements. "Our companies share a dedication to quality and customer service, and we look forward to offering excellent service to Vision-Sciences' clients in Europe."
