SchmidtRFID Partners with Cogiscan

RFID solutions for electronics manufacturers in Asia

Read more about Cogiscan on their detail page in the Member Directory Schmidt Electronics Group and Cogiscan are pleased to announce the first step of a long-term strategic partnership. SchmidtRFID, a division of Schmidt Electronics Group, will offer the complete range of Cogiscan RFID solutions in Asia.

Matthew Man, Schmidt Electronics Group director - business development & strategic marketing: “This partnership with Cogiscan represents the cornerstone of the SchmidtRFID technology and market development roadmap. Over the past 6 years Cogiscan has developed a complete range of RFID solutions uniquely adapted for the electronics manufacturing industry. Their award-winning technology is well proven in the field, but Cogiscan was lacking the strong local presence and critical mass to sell and support this product on a large scale in Asia. SchmidtRFID has the experience and the resources to bring this unique technology to large manufacturers in greater China and other countries in Asia." "With this new addition to our product line we now have the ability to offer end-to-end RFID solutions, starting with closed-loop factory automation and later expanding into global supply chain applications. The first phase of RFID implementation includes the ability to track, trace and control all materials and tools on the shop floor. This will significantly increase quality, reduce costs, and accelerate the deployment and the ROI for our customers, while providing a roadmap to extend RFID applications from the production floor to the warehouse and the supply chain."

Francois Monette of Cogiscan Francois Monette, vice president sales and marketing for Cogiscan: “This is a very important and strategic partnership for Cogiscan. We know that there is a strong need for our technology in this market, but we also recognize that the large manufacturers in Asia prefer to buy this type of system from a large and well-established local system provider. Considering their long history of success in selling assembly equipment and data acquisition systems in this market, SchmidtRFID is clearly the best partner to accelerate our revenue growth in Asia.”
