Ventec is taking over the exclusive distribution of Taiyo products in mainland Europe, the UK and Ireland.
Ventec says that customers get greater and faster access to Taiyo product inventories which will be stocked and fulfilled from Ventec’s distribution hubs in Germany and the United Kingdom from October 1 this year.
Taiyo is a provider of specialty dielectric inks and via filling inks for use with microvia and build-up technologies, legend inks, dielectric and conductive ink products for the solar, lighting & display markets as well as thermal-cure and UV-cure solder masks.
The company will continue to provide sales and technical support to its direct customers, with Ventec providing supply chain fulfilment and invoicing services.
For all other customers, Ventec will offer sales, technical, supply chain / distribution support. The agreement also opens up the opportunity for Ventec to offer Taiyo’s innovative range of specialty inks and solder masks for printed circuit boards to Ventec’s own strong and varied customer base in Europe from industries including medical, aerospace, consumer electronics and automotive.
