Juki Automation Systems, Inc., a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and part of Juki Corporation, announces that it has signed a long-term exclusive cooperation and distribution agreement with GKG Precision Machine Company, Ltd. of Guangdong, China and its sales arm GKG Asia Pte Ltd. of Singapore. The agreement covers the development, customization and sales of GKG screen printing systems and accessories in the Americas.
Juki Automation Systems’ President and CEO Bob Black commented, “We have been quite impressed with the quality and innovation shown by GKG during the last six months of our discussions with them. We have conducted extensive testing of GKG printers at key Juki customers and the results have been very positive. As a result, we are pleased to add GKG to our sales portfolio. Because Juki features the largest and best service team in the Americas, our customers can expect a great quality printer at a reasonable price, backed by the best service and support in the industry. I also want to commend the hard work by Juki’s OEM Business Manager Todd O’Neil in working to complete this agreement with GKG.”
GKG Precision Machinery Co., Ltd. was founded in 2005 as a leading company with R&D, manufacturing, sales and service of high-tech integrated equipment. GKG started out as a manufacturer of SMT fully automatic solder paste screen printers. The company has since extended into the LED market with a fully automatic high-speed die bonder, a wire bonding machine and a solar cell production line solution.
“Today, we at GKG proudly announce the partnership with Juki, under which JAS Inc. will sell our GKG printers in the Americas. We trust that our high-quality product coupled with JAS, Inc.’s reputation for continued after-sales service will be an easy decision for customers seeking a fully automatic screen printer,” remarked Glenn Qiu, Founder and CEO of GKG Precision. “Going forward, GKG will expand into our own new high-tech industrial park. With the increase in our manufacturing hub, we will continue to focus on our wealth of R&D in high-end electronics assembly equipment. I personally would like to thank all of our customers, Juki team members and partners for their support and contribution to GKG’s success.”
GKG ASIA Managing Director K.S. Toon commented, “We view this long-term exclusive cooperation with Juki as the most important opportunity for GKG to venture into overseas markets. We were impressed by the strong commitment from Juki to keep stock in its two strategic locations in the Americas.
