Hakusan, Japan, February 16, 2016 – EIZO Corporation (TSE: 6737) announced today that Tech Source, Inc., an EIZO group company specializing in ruggedized graphics and video products and based in Altamonte Springs, Florida, USA, is changing its name to EIZO Rugged Solutions Inc. The new name and a change in the web site address to eizorugged.com will take effect on April 1, 2016.
The name change reflects EIZO’s commitment to driving new business in the global rugged COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) market as outlined in its mid-term business plan. EIZO Rugged Solutions will continue to develop, manufacture and sell high quality, safety-critical and mission-critical graphics and video solutions but will also offer other high end display solutions from the EIZO group into this core market.
EIZO acquired Tech Source in 2007 to gain a foothold in the air traffic control (ATC) market. Since then EIZO has become an established name in the ATC market and in other specialist vertical markets.
“EIZO has a global reputation for developing high quality display solutions for several vertical markets,” said Selwyn L Henriques, president & CEO of Tech Source. “Changing our name to EIZO Rugged Solutions will enable us to leverage that brand as we continue to grow our market share and expand our offerings in graphics boards, video encoders, recorders and other solutions for rugged environments.”
EIZO Rugged Solutions will continue to manufacture its core MIL-STD-810 graphics and video products in the USA from its manufacturing facility in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
“This is an exciting opportunity for the Tech Source team as we build on almost three decades in the graphics and video market,” added Mr. Henriques. “It’s also a great opportunity for growth as we plan to offer products from other EIZO group companies to our existing customers in the defense, security, aerospace, avionics, transportation, maritime and industrial markets.”
