LONDON Abacus Group has signed an agreement with Alps Electric Europa GmbH to distribute electromechanical and electronic components, printers and floppy disk drives throughout Europe.
The agreement extends existing relationships between the two companies in several European markets, and, for the first time, allows Abacus to offer the products in Germany, Austria and Benelux. Alps is Abacus’ first Europe-wide, Group-wide franchise win since the acquisition of Deltron in January.
Under the agreement, Abacus Group will promote Alps human-machine interface products, including switches, potentiometers, sensors, connectors and printers as well as computer peripherals such as floppy disk drives. Key markets are pro-audio applications such as mixing consoles, automotive applications, and general industrial and consumer electronics.
