Distec becomes exclusive distributor for automotive specialists MRS Electronic in the UK
Distec Ltd, the specialist provider of hybrid technology solutions to industrial, medical and manufacturing settings, is set to extend its services in automotive and vehicle electronics as the exclusive UK distributor for MRS Electronic.
Distec, part of the KAMIC Group, will be able to sell the firm’s entire product portfolio, including its innovative controllers and gateways. Controllers are digital electronic systems used to control machines or systems, with programmable memory for the storage and execution of user-oriented commands. Meanwhile, the gateways are a central point of contact for all control units, enabling centralised governance and coordination of all units within a single vehicle. Collectively, these products can be tailored to fit all automotive markets.
MRS Electronic is headquartered in Rottweil, Germany and is a specialist in automotive and commercial vehicle electronics, including product development, assembly and production. Its product portfolio covers CAN interface, compact controllers, motor controllers, gateways, relays and human-machine interface (HMI) systems, and it supplies these across a wide range of sectors.
The company has built up a worldwide network of international partners beyond Germany, including sister companies in the USA, Croatia and the Ukraine. The managers plan to approach international markets through sales partners as well as subsidiaries, and Distec is the latest firm to join to roster.
Commenting on the partnership, Noel Sheppard, Director at Distec said: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with MRS Electronic, a truly innovative company that will give us fantastic reach in the automotive space. Specialist vehicles play a crucial role across many of the sectors we operate in, from emergency services to manufacturing and retail, so having a strong and diverse product offer in this space is really important to us.
“This agreement was made possible through our partnership with EG Electronics, a group of dedicated companies that specialise in offering customers the correct products for application in various market sectors across the globe.”
