TUALATIN, OR - CUI Global, Inc.

The initial agreement between Yokogawa (UK) Ltd and Orbital-UK, announced November 6, 2013, gave increased weight to Orbital-UK’s ever growing versatility and ability to work in new industry areas and with new partners and clients. That agreement called for Orbital-UK to supply various systems encompassing Yokogawa instruments to its customers in the UK.
Now, based on Orbital-UK’s performance and capabilities, that agreement has been formalized and expanded with Yokogawa (UK) Ltd. The expansion of this relationship is a testament to Orbital-UK’s 30 years of experience in providing innovative engineering solutions and its ability to consistently deliver projects on time, within budget and with unrivalled build quality. Those qualities, coupled with Yokogawa’s diverse and large range of high quality products, will ensure that end-users receive an engineered solution to meet their process requirements.
“We are very enthusiastic about our relationship with Yokogawa and their decision to expand the scope of that relationship by appointing Orbital as a system integration partner.” commented CUI Global’s president & CEO, William Clough. “This expansion reinforces our successful commitment to our customers and their individual needs and requirements.”
Neil Stuchbury, Orbital-UK’s sales director added, “This expanding partnership with Yokogawa is an excellent example of our ambition to extend our portfolio in supporting industry-leading clients like Yokogawa (UK) Ltd. The continuing partnership with Yokogawa also emphasizes Orbital’s expertise, ambition and growing reputation.”
“Yokogawa is recognized as a leading supplier of industrial automation solutions including our analysis product range, particularly the innovative GC8000 process gas chromatograph. This exciting partnership with Orbital enables us to provide our customers with enhanced solutions by utilizing the combined expertise of both companies,” explained Peter Cologne, Yokogawa (UK)’s Northern Area Sales Manager.
“This expanded relationship with Yokogawa (UK) Limited demonstrates the continuing value of the Orbital-UK acquisition. We believe that, as we expand Orbital-UK’s global market presence with partners like Yokogawa, along with the impact of the VE-Probe and GasPT2 Technologies, that acquisition will only increase our ability to grow and enhance shareholder value in the future,” Clough concluded.
