DORSET, UNITED KINGDOM - October 31, 2007 - Europlacer, a designer and manufacturer of comprehensive SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry, announces that it has appointed SmartTec GmbH as its exclusive distributor for Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland.

SmartTec, formed in 2003, has demonstrated exceptional growth in sales and capability in customer support during the last four years and is now the pre-eminent distributor in the German speaking market. SmartTec already represents several leading equipment suppliers and the addition of the Europlacer product line broadens its solution base to its customers.

SmartTec Managing Director of Equipment Sales Uwe Geisler said, �We have always supported the Europlacer concept and capability. The introduction of the new iineo machine propels Europlacer into a new level of competitiveness. We are excited about the prospect of building a market share together in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.�

About Europlacer

Europlacer has been developing machines for electronics assembly since the 1970s and invented the intelligent feeder concept in the 1980s.
