Aug 28, 2016

JUKI Automation Systems, a worldwide leading supplier of SMT placement systems and production solutions, and ETEK Europe Ltd. bundle their competences in order to strengthen their local presence in the markets of the United Kingdom and Ireland, and to further expand their common growth potentials.

As the new sales partner and distributor for the complete JUKI product portfolio, ETEK Europe Ltd. has extensive know-how, a wide-ranging sales and technical support network, as well as excellent contacts to local electronics manufacturers and customers. In the 14.000 m2 Technology Center in Prestwick, Scotland, customers can be trained directly at site.

Mike Nelson, Managing Director of ETEK Europe Ltd., expressed: “ETEK has already been working with JUKI in other countries for five years, and is extremely proud to add JUKI equipment to our product portfolio for UK & Ireland. JUKI equipment has the lowest cost of ownership in their market and this is very attractive to our UK & Irish customer base. We have also just invested in some demo JUKI equipment that UK & Irish customers can view in our Technology Centre… most definitely exciting times ahead.”

Jens Mirau, General Director of JUKI Automation Systems Europe, is also very pleased about this news: “With ETEK Europe Ltd, we have a proven, strong partner at our side, who has been actively successful for us as a distributor in other countries. I am really looking forward to a close cooperation in order to intensify the support for our customers.”
