Pick & place equipment manufacturer Europlacer has appointed PAKT Electronics as its exclusive distributor in Poland. Formed in 2008, PAKT is well connected across the country and represents other principals in the territory, offering capital equipment, peripherals and consumables.

As part of its remit, PAKT Electronics will deliver Europlacer after sales support services and applications expertise across Poland. Service engineers from the company have already undertaken intensive training at Europlacer’s European HQ.

Founder and co-owner of PAKT Electronics, Lukasz Kazmierczak, points out that the Polish electronics sector continues to develop thanks to favourable labour costs, easy access to qualified and skilled employees, and also the availability of EU funding programmes. “There are plenty of newly-founded electronics producers looking for equipment, so that’s a great opportunity for us with Europlacer platforms,” claims Kazmierczak. “In addition, existing customers face constant change in component packaging technology, which demands the kind of flexibility and accuracy that Europlacer equipment guarantees,” he adds.

While PAKT offers other equipment including screen printers, reflow ovens and selective soldering solutions, Kazmierczak knows that a manufacturer’s line is typically built around its pick & place platform. “Europlacer machines are distinguished by their uncompromising flexibility and capacity. They will be a fundamental element of our complete SMT line proposition to customers in Poland,” he explains.


The Blakell Europlacer Group comprises the Speedprint Technologies, Europlacer, and Blakell Europlacer Distribution business units. All three are active and pre-eminent in the electronic circuit board assembly sector with advanced product and service solutions for electronics manufacturers in the UK and globally. Speedprint Technologies is a provider of screen printing equipment used in surface mount assembly processes. Europlacer is a provider of surface mount component placement equipment. Blakell Europlacer Distribution augments the provision of screen printing and pick & place platforms in the UK with a range of associated equipment, including AOI, reflow and PCB handling.
