Juki Celebrates 20 Successful Years in Argentina

Dec 19, 2010

MORRISVILLE, NC - Juki Corporation, a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems, announces that it recently held a customer appreciation dinner at the Estilo Campo Restaurante in Buenos Aires. The dinner was held in celebration of Juki’s presence in Argentina for more than 20 years.

"For 20 years, Juki has been our best line in our extended line card. We feel truly committed to Juki and receive 100 percent support from all of the people within their organization," said Juan Pena, GM of Macon.

"Argentina is a small SMT market compared to Brazil, but it focuses more on professional, high-quality products, especially in the Tierra del Fuego area," continued Pena. "Juki's products and technologies are a good fit for this territory and the team understands the atmosphere well: they provide fair pricing and consistent customer support. Additionally, Juki is established and more thorough than its competitors. This can be seen in each new generation of advanced systems."

Juki’ success in Argentina is a result of its machine reliability and low cost of ownership. Another key factor in Juki’s success was the decision to stock spare parts on consignment in Tierra del Fuego at exactly the right time in the market.

Bob Black, President and CEO of Juki Automation Systems, said “It was great to meet so many of our Argentine customers again and celebrate more than 20 years of business with them. Our customers make our success possible, and we owe them the best service and support for trusting us with their production. We also were very proud to mark more than 20 years of partnership with MaCon, who has done an outstanding job of representing us in this important area. The best thing about this anniversary is that Juki and MaCon will continue to expand our business together with exciting plans ahead.”

As Juki’s exclusive representative throughout Argentina, MaCon has sold over 100 machines to more than 30 customers. MaCon covers a broad territory with factories located as far as 5,000 kilometers from one another, making the sales challenge suitable for very few representative companies.

Juki Corporation’s experience as the market leader in industrial sewing machines was the stepping-stone for the entry into the printed circuit board assembly market in 1987. Since then, Juki has delivered more than 22,000 automated assembly systems worldwide and is currently shipping an average of 200 assembly machines per month. This extraordinary achievement makes Juki one of the world’s leading providers of automated assembly products and systems. In addition to its core technologies, Juki’s Electronic Assembly and Test Systems Division develops and manufactures advanced electronic systems and computer software for data entry, mail processing and other electronic equipment.

With the purchase of Zevatech’s assets in November 1999, Juki Automation Systems now brings Juki’s reputation for top quality and reliable service also to the North and South American and the European electronics assembly markets. Juki recognizes the challenges of the new century and is prepared to respond to the globalization of electronic manufacturing. With a sophisticated knowledge base, advanced technologies and a high commitment to its customers, Juki is poised for continued growth in the 21st century.
