Both companies expressed their excitement with the agreement and their expectations for the future. HARTING will provide Heilind’s customers with its world-class connectivity solutions. Heilind will, in turn, increase HARTING’s growth even more through their online sales and industry presence.
“We are very happy with this partnership,” said Jon DeSouza, President & CEO of HARTING Americas. “Heilind has a very dedicated customer base who we are looking forward to supporting with our products. We firmly believe that this partnership will help us reach our goals.”
Present at the event was a selection of HARTING’s world-class connectivity products that Heilind customers can now purchase through the distributor. Some highlighted products were the company’s industry leading rectangular connectors, including the Han-Modular® series, which allows the combination of multiple medias in a single connection point, the quick and easy to install HARTING PushPull, the expansive M8, M12, and 7/8” cordset portfolio, among others.
