Dublin, Ireland and Tokyo, Japan, 16 March 2018, O.C.E. Technology (www.ocetechnology.com) today announced Nacelle Co., Ltd. as its distributor to service the growing Japanese market for its aerospace products.
The company made the announcement after some months’ negotiations with a number of interested Japanese distribution companies.
The agreement targets local representation to deliver a 10% market share over the next 4 years of high-reliability electronic components in sectors including the fast-growing small satellite industry.
OCE’s hardware products introduced to the European market in 2016 are now selling in many regions throughout the world and CEO, Barry Kavanagh, said “The Japanese Aerospace Industry is an important player in the region and we are delighted to have such a respected and successful company as Nacelle deliver our products and services into Japan”.
Nacelle’s CEO, Nobuyuki Fujii, said “OCE’s products fit in very well with our existing range of boards and systems for harsh environments such as space and will present an ideal opportunity for Nacelle to service growth in these markets”.
