Keithley products to be distributed by Metric in Finland, Baltic States

Electrical test instrument and system provider Keithley Instruments Inc of Cleveland, OH, USA has signed an agreement for the distribution of its products in Finland and the Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) with Metric Industrial Oy of Espoo, Finland (part of Nordic MI Group, a business unit of Swedish public company Addtech), which specializes in distributing components and test equipment for the industrial automation, fiber-optic networks, and electronics industries.

Metric will sell the full line of Keithley instruments geared to the specialized needs of electronics manufacturers for high-performance production testing, process monitoring, and product development solutions, including: digital multimeters and systems; switching and control; power supplies; source and measure products; low-level measurement and sourcing, including low-current/high-resistance measurements and low-voltage/low-resistance measurements; semiconductor test; optoelectronics test; and data acquisition products.

“By working as a team, Keithley and Metric will be able to deliver superior test & measurement solutions in the region,” says Keithley’s VP of business management Mark Hoersten. “In this way, we can offer our customers efficient access to our products, coupled with the superior local support that Metric’s technical sales engineers and service organization can provide,” he adds.

“Metric is the biggest independent test & measurement equipment supplier in Finland, with a product portfolio that includes some of the world’s leading suppliers,” says Mika Joutsila, business unit manager at Metric Industrial. “We are focusing strongly on the electronics industries market and, when combined with the Tektronix product line, Keithley products fit very well,” he adds. “Our aim is to provide the best possible local support for Keithley customers and to help them improve their productivity.”

Keithley signs Sweden distribution agreement with Nortelco

Earlier in August, Keithley Instruments also signed a distribution agreement with Nortelco Electronics AS (an independant full-service distributor of test & measurement equipment and electronic components in Norway and Denmark) to handle sales and support of its products in Sweden. Nortelco has already represented Keithley in Norway and Denmark for many years.

To handle both Keithley and its other distribution clients, Norway-based Nortelco is establishing a new sales office in Stockholm (to be open by 1 October) under the direction of a new local sales manager. Nortelco is already established in the broadcast industry in Sweden as a distributor of Tektronix video test and related equipment from other vendors. In 2010, Keithley joined Tektronix and now operates as part of its test & measurement portfolio.
