Gleichmann Electronics now distributes displays from Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics (KOE)

Hitachi Display Products Group (DPG) will do business under a new name

(PresseBox) (Stutensee, ) Following the integration of the display businesses of Hitachi, Sony and Toshiba to create Japan Display Inc (JDI) and the integration of Hitachi's industrial display products in the newly founded Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics (KOE), a wholly owned subsidiary of JDI, the highly successful partnership between Hitachi Europe and MSC-Gleichmann Group, which has already existed since 1984, now enters into a new phase.

In line with the concentration of all display and visualization activities within one company, in future, Gleichmann Electronics, instead of MSC, will distribute the innovative and technologically high-end products from Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics.

At Gleichmann Electronics, one of the three leading distributors of displays in Europe, the products from Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics are seen as an ideal complement to the existing range of products. "Not only are Hitachi and MSC-Gleichmann Group linked by a long-standing partnership, but also by a company philosophy based on quality and reliability. In the past, the name Hitachi always stood for exceptionally high-quality industrial displays and this is not going to change with the change of name," Klaus Hagenacker, General Manager, Gleichmann Electronics, said confidently.

Mark Stanley, General Manager KOE Europe, is also looking forward to the future cooperation with Gleichmann Electronics. "As with Hitachi, the new name Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics also stands for the design, development and manufacture of exceptionally high-quality and reliable displays for industrial applications. Therefore, as KOE Europe we are glad that from the beginning we can rely on proven and experienced distribution partners like Gleichmann Electronics."

According to Mark Stanley, KOE Europe will continue to supply a wide range of standard passive STN and color TFT displays from 3.5-inches to 21.3-inches. In addition, Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics will also offer a highly flexible approach to producing bespoke, custom STN display solutions. "Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics inherits an established industrial LCD heritage from Hitachi. With continued investment in research and development Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics' aim is to ensure that it remains at the forefront of evolving LCD technology," commented Mark Stanley.

MSC Technologies GmbH

Founded in 1979, Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH, which is part of the same group of companies with MSC Vertriebs GmbH, is one of the leading pan-European distributors of electronic assemblies and components. With the early focus on a small number of support-intensive product areas such as displays, optoelectronics and customized rechargeable battery packs, Gleichmann & Co. Electronics was able to build up unique system know-how over a number of years in the areas previously mentioned. This in-depth technical know-how, which is unusual for a distributor, enables Gleichmann & Co. Electronics as Display Solution Center to support customers on an individual basis according to needs at each stage of the customer's application development. This support ranges from the traditional product advice and extensive design-in support up to taking over the entire product development.
