TOKYO -- Olympus will expand its sales force and offer new, high-performance surgical tools to try cutting into the Chinese market for medical devices.

     The Japanese optical equipment producer aims to more than double the Chinese hospitals using its endoscopes and other devices to 3,000 by 2019. It faces rising competition from local manufacturers whose primary advantage is low costs.
