Yamaha Motor IM Europe and Altus Group Ltd, a sales and support company based near Birmingham UK, are pleased to announce an equipment distribution partnership for the UK and Ireland
Yamaha IM have an extensive range of Electronics production equipment from Printing and Dispensing, through Component “Pick & Place” to inspection and In-line X-Ray. Their appointment of Altus for the UK and Irish market, is part of a broader European initiative to continue to build the Yamaha brand name, and installed base throughout Europe, to the same extent, as its dominant presence in Asia.
Patrick de Witt, General Manager of Yamaha Motor IM Europe GmbH stated, “We are very pleased to appoint a company with the success in capital equipment sales and after sales support, of the Altus Group, and look forward to our mutual success, in supporting existing customers and reaching new ones. We very much believe in the strength of the Yamaha offering, and want the chance to prove and develop this with prospective customers in the UK and Ireland”.
Richard Booth, General Manager of Altus Group, was similarly pleased saying, “We are delighted to add the Yamaha range to our product portfolio. We have always wished to have a strong and powerful Pick and Place brand in our product portfolio, but until now, we could not find one which fits with our company, so well as Yamaha. The Yamaha proposition is a perfect complement to our existing range and will enable us to offer both individual machines and complete line solutions with specifications that meet the technical and commercial needs of our customers.
Yamaha is already one of the best established Pick & Place suppliers in the UK and Irish market. Our challenge is to help them to develop the actual brand name Yamaha in our market. We always emphasise our strengths in after sales support and want to extend our after sales support programmes to prospective and current Yamaha customers”.
Both companies will begin joint travel and visits throughout the region, and will be presenting products and services at the “Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2015” Show at FIVE in Farnborough from 10th to 12th February next year.
