Contec Partners with Meiji Corporation to Expand Influence in Factory Automation Market

Contec, a global technology solutions provider and subsidiary of Contec Co. Ltd., today announced it has partnered with Meiji Corporation (Meiji Corp.), a leading distributor of factory automation products in Asia, Europe, and North America. Meiji Corporation was chosen by Contec to resell its growing line of computer products designed for the industrial automation market including box computers, thin clients, rugged all-in-ones (AIO), displays, data acquisition (DAQ), motion control, and wireless network solutions. Contec has served the industrial and factory automation markets for over 24 years and was recently named a finalist for the Intel® IoT Partner of the Year award for its EPC-S2100 Industrial Computer, the first platform certified by Intel® for its latest release of the Intel® Industrial Solutions System Consolidation Series software.

“Meiji has been a trusted name in the factory automation industry for almost 100 years," commented Brad Jens, VP of Sales & Marketing at Contec. “Like Contec, they have a history of developing long-lasting relationships with some of the world’s leading manufacturers including our parent company [Contec Co. Ltd]. That type of longevity doesn’t happen by accident. I’ve had the opportunity to work with President Sugiwaki and several other members of the Meiji team. They are extremely knowledgeable about the industry and dedicated to supporting their customers. We are happy to be working them.”

The partnership between Meiji Corp. and Contec is an integral part of Contec’s aggressive 5-year sales plan. “Contec has had steady, incremental growth year over year since its inception in 1991,” said Todd Venable, Director of Channel Sales at Contec.

“We have leveraged that experience, utilized the additional resources afforded to us as part of the Contec group family of companies, and built a solid portfolio of products and services that provide real value to OEMs in the markets we serve. By joining forces with quality partners like Meiji Corp. we can help a whole new group of customers and can feel confident they will be well supported. It’s a win-win.”

Meiji Corporation is a subsidiary of Meiji Electronic Industries, Co., Ltd., a value-added distributor of electrical parts and material founded in Japan in 1920. Meiji Corp. will represent Contec products and services as a strategic reseller focused on the North American market.

“Since our founding, the team at Meiji Corporation has done everything possible to ensure the continued satisfaction of our customers,” said Mr. Hiroki Sugiwaki, President of Meiji Corporation. “We are committed to upholding these relationships and working to build new ones with Contec in the future.”
