It is extremely important for COT to identify a partner that shares the same goals as we do and has the ability to provide our customers with first-class service, support and a distribution network across Europe,” said Zachery Shook, Marketing Director for Count On Tools. “The AdoptSMT Group clearly fits the stringent criteria we have identified to promote our line of SMT nozzles, tools and consumables effectively, and to allow COT to move the business forward in this key strategic market.”
