Hauppauge NY, January 28, 2003. Sagitta announced a strategic partnership agreement with U-Tech to become the exclusive representative in Taiwan for Sagitta's fiberoptic process equipment. Sagitta recently has successfully penetrated the fiberoptics component manufacturing industry, launching a new line of standard-setting process and inspection equipment.

Gemini, the company's flagship product family, is first to market with an integrated process solution of polishing, cleaning, and optical inspection for fiberoptic components. The Gemini-Pi services planar devices, v-groove fiber arrays, ferrule assemblies, and other critical components. The Gemini-Cx is the process solution for connectors, cable assemblies, and flex circuits.

"Sagitta is committed to first-rate customer service in this rapidly growing market, which is why we selected U-Tech to represent us," said Bob Postle, Corporate Vice President of Sales at Sagitta. "As demand and manufacturing increases, Taiwan will play an increasingly critical role. And as one of the best established fiberoptic agents for the Taiwan fiberoptics and photonics industries, U-Tech is the ideal partner for us, as a company that maintains a stellar reputation and strong understanding of the Taiwan market, as well as the specific and special needs of customers."

"We are excited to add Sagitta's Gemini platform to our product line," said Y.C. Lu, President of U-Tech. "One of the critical benefits of the Gemini is the ability to increase product value and reduce manufacturing costs. The system has absolute and computerized controls over every polishing parameter. This ability to control and adjust in real-time will prevent the defects that cause undesirable component performance and a higher value product will be produced by our customers with lower costs."
