Koji Saeki, General Manager for Shikoku’s Electronic Chemicals Sales Department commented, “We are pleased to align ourselves in North America with a distributor of Insulectro’s stature. In a brief amount of time, our relationship has grown due to our shared vision. I look forward to meeting customers at IPC APEX EXPO in a few weeks and acquainting them with the Shikoku product line.”

In addition to Shikoku, Insulectro is a longtime distributor of Focus Tech process chemicals and control solutions to various manufacturing industries with an emphasis on PCB fabrication and chemical milling operations.
