Hover-Davis appoints AdoptSMT as Germany and Bulgaria distributor

Apr 03, 2013

Hover-Davis, a global leader in the design and manufacture of SMT component delivery solutions, announces a further expansion of AdoptSMT Europe GmbH sales and support distribution, now adding the countries of Germany and Bulgaria to its territory. 

AdoptSMT Group has successfully distributed Hover-Davis products throughout Europe since 2006.   In this latest expansion of its relationship with AdoptSMT Group, Hover-Davis is pleased to announce full German and Bulgarian sales, support and distribution authority to AdoptSMT Group offices in Paderborn, Germany and Sangeorgiu de Mures, Romania.

AdoptSMT has continued to expand sales, service and support coverage throughout Europe, adding regionally focused service centers, staffing and offices that provide cost effective and expedited expert knowledge. Their established customer base in Germany and Bulgaria has long requested direct access to Hover-Davis replacement tape and label feeders. Customers have also expressed an interest to use the established AdoptSMT feeder services offered from the Adopt Paderborn location. With this change we now give our customers in Germany and Bulgaria the option to work directly with AdoptSMT.  Companies headquartered in Germany now have a local contact to support not only their facilities in Germany but also their factories located throughout Austria, Switzerland and neighboring Central and Eastern European countries,” states Michael Cyr, Hover-Davis General Manger.

“The centrally located Paderborn facility is a key to AdoptSMT’s unique position to service the replacement feeder market and also the growing demands for label feeding.  Through their strong market presence AdoptSMT Group successfully supports SiPlace® customer needs.  Their customer’s product obsolescence, long lead-time and parts availability challenges are overcome through aggressive focus into this market and with our mutual cooperation.  I am extremely pleased that customers in Germany and Bulgaria may now purchase Hover-Davis products and services directly from Adopt,” continues Michael Cyr.

Erhard Hofmann, Managing Director AdoptSMT Europe GmbH, notes: “We have been very carefully growing our sales and support infrastructure in Germany for several years. In addition to our very deep and experienced sales team our Paderborn office offers a very experienced team to provide full feeder repairs and services. Expanding our coverage beyond the recently announced areas of Austria and Switzerland into Germany and Bulgaria provides Hover-Davis customers with one point of contact that is able to support them comprehensively throughout Europe.  Many customers with headquarters in Germany desire a partner that is able to support their other factories located in other European countries including Central and Eastern Europe. With this additional territory we can now work directly with our customers’ headquarters to offer the most convenient and consistent service.  We are also very excited to be able to offer our established customers the convenience of one stop shopping by not only providing machine and spare parts services but also Hover-Davis tape and label feeder products.”
