Rehm Thermal Systems GmbH starting the new year with a new sales partner. As of January 1, 2022, Hilpert electronics AG will take over the marketing of production equipment for the electronics industry in Switzerland. Since the beginning of the year, Rehm customers as well as interested parties have had new direct contact persons on site who are competent and solution-oriented for all questions relating to soldering, coating, drying and curing with Rehm systems.
Hilpert AG has decided to break new ground with Rehm’s product portfolio and to distribute it on the Swiss electronics market in the future. “Besides new products for us in the field of conformal coating as well as drying and curing, we’re exchanging the complete product range in the field of convection and vapor phase soldering,” stated Raphael Burkart, Managing Director of Hilpert AG. The introduction of the products will be implemented gradually in Q1 2022.
“Our Sales department needs to become familiar with the new products gradually. This takes a little time, because we’d like to provide our customers with excellent advice in the end,” continued Hilpert. Michael Hanke, General Sales Manager of Rehm Thermal Systems GmbH, added that different points were decisive for Hilpert: “We were looking for a long-term partner with whom we could build something in Switzerland. This decision was influenced not only by the sales strength of Hilpert – but also by the market presence and communication in the market. What’s more, the existing product and brand portfolio – which includes market leaders such as ASM, Viscom or Nutek – spoke for Raphael Burkart and his team.”
In the new year, joint actions and activities are planned for the market launch of the new products. “Switzerland is an important market for us – as excellent electronic products are developed and produced here. In order to achieve high quality, high-quality machines are also required – which we’re happy to make available to Swiss producers together with Hilpert,” explained Hanke. “I’m sure the Hilpert/Rehm partnership will provide many added values for the Swiss manufacturers. In addition to the systems, customers can draw on a wide range of know-how and a great deal of experience from both companies in the field of thermal processes in electronics production – which is of great benefit for Switzerland as a business location,” added Burkart.
