"We have chosen to partner with Takebishi as their primary sales channel in the Americas and Europe to offer our customers best of breed connectivity beyond any of the competition."
"ICONICS is a great solution for this strategic partnership as they have a broad reach into the market, offer industry leading support for OPC and have been known as an independent supplier of software since 1986," says Hiroshi Okagaki, Director and Managing Executive Officer – Takebishi. "ICONICS has been delivering other third-party OPC servers for many years, in addition to their own communication solutions.
"As the first company to develop and market an OPC server in Japan, Takebishi has developed multiple OPC Servers over the years, contributing to the spread of OPC technology. We believe ICONICS is the right choice to sell and support Takebishi solutions to the market as a whole in addition to their own solutions."
Adds Thomas Burke, Global Director of Industry Partnerships for ICONICS, "We are very proud to have been chosen to represent Takebishi in the Americas and EMEA markets. These markets have been dominated by only a few other vendor solutions and this new offering will be very welcome to OEMs, system integrators and end-customers across all markets and applications. Takebishi products are known for their high performance and reliable communications, which will support customers in their quest for digital transformation.
"Mitsubishi Electric Automation with ICONICS are very focused on solutions for their customers," he explains. "The Takebishi products provide the foundation for customers to really address their digital journey. Interoperability and being able to provide these products as the data communications strategy is the key to IT/OT convergence. Being able to push data into edge devices and turn it into useful information will provide significant benefits to end-users in terms of increasing their productivity and their KPIs."
