Miyachi Corp. is consolidating its four micro-connection businesses under a single corporation to serve the European market. Miyachi Europe Corporation will unify the Miyachi, Miyachi Peco, Miyachi Unitek, and Unitek Eapro product ranges to provide a single source for the industry's leading products for micro-resistance welding, laser welding, and laser marking as well as for hot-bar soldering and heat-seal bonding.
Miyachi Europe's Managing Director, Susumu Ueda explains: "By consolidating the European businesses we are providing customers with easier access to the most advanced micro-connection technologies. This will enable customers to combine different technologies whilst reducing their vendor base for greater efficiency."
The new company will offer Miyachi laser welding and laser marking products, Miyachi Unitek fine-spot resistance welding equipment, Miyachi Peco micro-resistance welders and weld monitors for industrial and automotive applications, and Miyachi Eapro laser welding and laser marking, hot-bar soldering, and heat-seal-bonding systems.
Miyachi Europe's central research and development laboratory in Puchheim, Germany, will continue the company's 100-year record of innovation, as well as helping to develop customer-specific solutions across the different joining technologies.
The consolidation of the European businesses will begin in Q1 2008, and Miyachi Europe has a consolidated sales target of € 35 million by the end of the business year, 30th June 2008.
