Cleveland, OH; San Diego, CA— Keithley Instruments Inc. has agreed with Elgar Electronics Corp. to sell, service, and support Elgar’s programmable power supplies through Keithley's sales and support offices in China, Taiwan and Japan. This alliance enables Keithley to offer a more complete range of quality test and measurement products and services.
The products will continue to be sold under the Elgar and Sorensen brand names. Elgar will continue to sell and support its products through its own sales channels in North America, Europe and the rest of the Asia/Pacific region.
Elgar's products include ac power sources, programmable dc power systems and loads, solar array simulators, and integrated rack power subsystem services. Keithley products include highly accurate instruments and data acquisition products that measure low levels of voltage, resistance, current, capacitance, and charge, along with complete system solutions for high volume production and assembly testing.
'This agreement brings significant benefits to both Keithley and Elgar,' says Linda Rae, Keithley’s senior VP/GM. 'It allows our Asian customers to obtain a more complete measurement solution from a single company, while at the same time it improves Elgar's market presence in this fast-growing region of the electronics marketplace.'
Keithley began building a presence in Asia more than 40 years ago. Today, its employees operate throughout Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and China. The company began expanding its Chinese presence several years ago by adding staff and opening offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
