Aerco has been appointed as the sole UK strategic distributor for Hypertac, a brand of Smiths Connectors, and has increased its commitment to the assembly of Hypertac products. Aerco assembles a wide range of rectangular, PCB mount connectors, notably the popular range of two-part, PCB connectors in two and three row formats that comply with BS9525-N0001 and BS9525-F0016 as well as MIL-C-55302/159 to 164.
Under the terms of the new contract Aerco has increased its capability by assembling shrouded versions of the two-part, PCB connectors and versions with tin dipped contacts. Tin dipped versions will now be available on a two-week delivery, representing a major improvement for customers who had previously experienced deliveries in excess of 12 weeks.
Graham Dowle, global distribution director at Smiths Connectors, said: “Aerco is best positioned to serve as Hypertac’s sole UK strategic supplier as our companies are focused on a common market place and Aerco demonstrates a strong technical acumen and true value added capability. The appointment recognises Aerco’s commitment to value-added assembly, stock holding and technical support. The strong partnership between our two companies ensures that our customers will receive the best possible service.”
