News from the US

The response from our US customers about the changeover in distributorship is very positive. We got lots of supporting comments from existing customers, while going through the current dispute with AR, encouraging us to restart business in the US as soon as possible. Customers are very happy with EM Test equipment and, of course, they are interested in using it further. We are very optimistic that this case will be settled soon. In the meantime we will fully support all customers directly from Switzerland.

Some customers are questioning about the economic influence to the EM TEST business. Our answer is a simple one: No need to worry about EM TEST!
2005 was the most successful year in the history of EM TEST. Growth in incoming orders was 25% compared to 2004 (which was the best year we ever had so far). And this was reached despite sales in the US was low already in 2005. 2006 has started with even better figures than we had seen at the end of 2005. EM TEST business is extraordinary good in Europe and Asia.

We will keep you informed about the progress in this matter.

Change in the distributor network of North, Central and South America

Amplifier Research has decided to design their own products and to build up a competitive product line against EM TEST. EM TEST has terminated the agreement for distributorship by November 30, 2005.

For unexplainable reasons AR refuses to accept the termination but continues insisting instead on their exclusive rights. AR still wants to control the sales of EM TEST products, probably due to the fact that they have not yet finished the design of their own product range. EM TEST was forced to court therefore. So far AR’s motions have been denied upon EM TEST’s opposition thereto and it seems that everything will turn out well.

The case is not settled yet. Nevertheless, EM TEST feels obligated to now restart supreme sales and after sales service together with a new sales partner in the above mentioned territories.

For a short while, until negotiations will be accomplished, EM TEST offers best possible support from Switzerland. We invite our esteemed clientele to contact us directly when ever we could be of service.
