Jun 13, 2008 — by Eric Brown — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

MontaVista Software has signed up a value-added distributor to expand its sales and support organization in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Asia) region. Its deal with embedded supplier ANTYCIP will especialy strengthen MontaVista's presence in France and Spain, says the Silicon Valley-based vendor of Linux distributions and development tools.

Based in the Parisian suburb of Argenteuil, ANTYCIP distributes hardware and software throughout Western Europe and Scandinavia. However, the MontaVista deal focuses on expanding sales and support for embedded developers in France and Spain. ANTYCIP will sell MontaVista products and offer technical support, with assistance from MontaVista's office in France, and from Captura Electronica, MontaVista's distributor in Spain. ANTYCIP's customers are said to include companies that design and develop equipment and devices for communications, medical, military, industrial, and multimedia applications.

Stated Sou Bennani, EMEA business development director for MontaVista, “We have seen increasing demand for embedded Linux software and support from France and Spain over the last year, and are convinced that ANTYCIP will be able to help MontaVista respond to this growing demand.”

Stated Daniel Ait Akkouche, director of real time systems activities at ANTYCIP, “We have sought to provide our customers with the most comprehensive embedded Linux development solution, and MontaVista is clearly the leader in the industry today.”

This is MontaVista's second European sales and support expansion this year, following a similar deal with Karlsruhe, Germany-based Hitex Development Tools.
