HUDSONVILLE, Mich., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ESPEC North America Inc. (ENA) and Qualmark Corporation (Qualmark) today announce the combining of their respective sales groups to form one team. As the only two North American sister companies in the ESPEC Group, this strengthens support for both customer bases for their respective test chamber products.
In 2015, Qualmark became part of the ESPEC Group of companies as a wholly-owned subsidiary of ESPEC Corporation, headquartered in Osaka, Japan. ESPEC North America has been a part of this group since 1989. Since the addition of Qualmark to the group, the two companies have taken a collaborative approach to delivering the best environmental and accelerated test systems to the marketplace. The combination of the sales groups is a natural extension of this close working relationship. Both the ESPEC and Qualmark brands will continue to be offered.
The combined sales group will be comprised of six sales regions in North America, primarily with the same independent sales representatives attending to customers. Alignment of world-wide sales channels is also taking place. A full list of sales representation can be found on our websites at espec.com and qualmark.com.
"This one team format will offer the Environmental Testing and Design/Reliability Engineering communities unprecedented value by integrating the portfolio and capabilities of ENA, a highly respected industry leader, with Qualmark's proven technology and line of Combined Environment Accelerated Testing systems," said Ms. Cami Page, Qualmark's Global Marketing Manager.
