Since HEITEC step-by-step took over the Electronic packaging systems product line from RITTAL starting in 2010 (the transfer was completed in 2013), this comprehensive product portfolio has been successfully further developed, manufactured and marketed. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, HEITEC has been directly selling these products from that time on. In non-German-speaking foreign European countries the respective national Rittal-subsidiary took over distributing these HEITEC products. At the end of 2015, this European distribution structure was changed by mutual agreement: In Russia, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Italy Rittal stayed the distribution partner of HEITEC. In the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Rumania and Turkey the respective HEITEC subsidiaries assumed the sales task. In further 16 European countries HEITEC has now transferred the distribution responsibility for the Electronics packaging systems to nine recently contracted distributors:
• Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg: Arcobel Embedded Solutions
• Bulgaria: Rittbul
• Finland: PJ Control
• France: Azur Distribution
• Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia: Dacpol
• Portugal: MVA electrotécnia.
• Sweden, Norway, Denmark: Harrion & Modern Elteknik
• Spain: KolbiElectrónica
• Hungary: next system
“With our new distributors featuring long-term experience in the field of industrial electronics, electronic packaging systems and Embedded Systems, we have found competent partners who will help us taking care of our existing international customers, entering new regions and expanding our market presence in Europe,” commented Roland Chochoiek, EVP Business Unit Electronics at HEITEC. With the support of the distributors in their numerous offices, a wide range of standard products combined with quick modification and customer-specific integration can be offered to European customers.
