AR Europe announces new partnership with
The 41st Institute of CETC, China

24th May 2016

The 41st Institute of China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC41), one of the leading manufacturers of RF & Microwave Instrumentation in China, recently appointed AR Europe as their exclusive distribution partner in Europe (covering the UK, France, Benelux and Germany).

This new agreement follows CETC41’s strategic decision to develop their business outside of China, where they are already a market leader and the only professional Electronic Measurement Institute.

"We are extremely pleased to formally appoint AR Europe as our distribution partner”, said Jianto Dong, Vice Director for CETC41. “AR is a globally recognised brand and one which is associated to quality which we consider to be very important. The strong base and expertise in the key territories in Europe will provide us the opportunity to become a brand which is also well recognised in this market.”

Mark Reeve, Operations Director of AR Europe added, "We are honoured to have been selected as the CETC41 distribution partner in Europe and are very excited to be part of their expansion and growth which entering our market will bring. This is a unique opportunity for us and one that does not come around very often. Their range of instrumentation is perfectly aligned to what we currently offer and gives our European customers another option when considering future investment in RF & Microwave instrumentation”.

AR Europe will offer the range of high quality, precision portable and bench top signal generators, vector network and spectrum analysers covering a broad range of applications all backed by local European support and after sales service from the ARE service centres.
