MUNICH - From August 1, 2008, the distribution of machine vision software products of MVTec Software GmbH (Munich) in the UK and Ireland will be performed by MultiPix Imaging Ltd (Petersfield, UK). Furthermore, MultiPix will provide technical support of MVTec’s products HALCON and ActivVisionTools. Throughout the world, MVTec software users benefit from excellent sales and technical support via local distributors. As part of this strategy, MVTec has won back MultiPix as their distribution partner. MultiPix has already been MVTec’s distribution partner for the UK and Ireland until 2005.

"The UK is one of the most outstanding industrial markets in the world", says Dr. Olaf Munkelt, MVTec’s managing director. "Thus, MVTec wants to expand its sales activities in this market. We are sure that MultiPix will meet our requirements in the future in a same highly qualified and exceptional way as we already know it from the past."

The distribution channel transition is carefully chosen to prepare the launch of the new HALCON 9.0 version at the beginning of 2009.

"MultiPix Imaging Ltd is delighted to be working alongside MVTec Software GmbH again", says Peter Hunt, managing director of MultiPix. "We look forward to selling and supporting HALCON and ActivVisionTools machine vision software along with the complementary products currently offered by MultiPix Imaging."
