Citizen Systems Europe announces a change of Managing Director as of the 1st November 2008 with the appointment of Mr Yasuhiro Kiuchi.

During this period Citizen has re-established itself, from a European based manufacturer of dot-matrix printers, to a market leader in thermal printers and calculators.
