Scottsdale, Ariz. – (Feb. 16, 2016) – NKK Switches today announced organizational changes that have added localized resources throughout the Americas in order to better serve the needs of the entire switch market. The shift in structure is in direct correlation with the company’s desire to better service customers in markets that it currently serves and new markets that it looks to address.

“We want to further understand the needs of switch customers, so our focus is to develop meaningful relationships in localized markets to identify product needs and wants,” said Laurence Sweeney, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, NKK Switches. “Expanding our team to include regional design support and custom engineering capabilities is effectively investing in our future on behalf of the customers.”

Additionally, customers using custom solutions will be provided access to value-added design services to help them get an advantage over their competition and differentiate their products.
