Samsung Techwin Europe has signed a new distribution agreement with Norbain SD Limited. As the manufacturer said, this follows on the July 2 news that Norbain’s UK operation was acquired by Newbury Investments (UK) Ltd, in a pre-pack arrangement from the company’s administrators, KPMG.
Gary Rowden, pictured, Sales and Marketing Director of Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, said: “Our priority has always been to ensure our customers have access to Samsung Techwin products through the distribution channel of their choice. Following the completion of our discussions with Norbain, I am very pleased to be able to confirm that this objective has been achieved and we are looking forward to working closely with the new Norbain organisation. This agreement will ensure continuity of supply of Samsung Techwin products to existing Norbain customers and that as a result, our customers will not experience any disruption in supply.”
For the Reading-based electronic security distributor, Keith Purvis, Operations Director at Norbain said: “We are delighted to continue our close and strategic relationship with Samsung Techwin. This renewed agreement between our two companies will be the catalyst for accelerated growth of Samsung Techwin’s analogue and IP product ranges.”
