Europlacer, multiple award-winning designer and manufacturer of best-in-class, flexible SMT pick-and-place equipment for the global electronics assembly industry, has appointed Dan Trinka and 4Tech Electronics as the newest on its growing list of premium manufacturer’ representatives. In addition to serving as an enhanced resource for Europlacer customers throughout Michigan and Ohio, 4Tech will support Europlacer’s growth trajectory while the company continues gaining market share because more assembly experts are choosing Europlacer pick-and-place equipment, SMD Component Storage Towers and fully integrated Stock Management software to optimize their production processes.

“What has impressed me most while getting to know Dan and his organization is that 4Tech is a very well-known, skilled, connected and respected organization with a long, loyal list of customers whom they have supported with first-rate equipment and service over many years,” said North American Sales Manager Chris Merow. “It is abundantly clear when I talk to them that Dan and his team have earned their trust. At Europlacer, we too have set a high standard when it comes to industry-leading equipment quality and exceptional customer service, so this a partnership that is sure to work well for us, 4Tech and potential customers in that region.” Mr. Merow continued, “I’m certain Dan and his team will strengthen our efforts there, as we continue our significant market share gains.  4Tech will provide this territory with both an enhanced understanding of our comprehensive set of tools for serving high-mix assembly businesses and unique Europlacer feature sets that enable strong, competitive advantages for users.”
