Beneq and America II Electronics enter a distribution agreement for Lumineq® displays
As Beneq continues to expand its business of Lumineq® displays for extreme conditions, there is a growing need for wider distribution of the company’s rugged thin film electroluminescence (TFEL) displays as well as the fully transparent TASEL® displays, which have a substantial installed base and range of interesting future applications in the defense, transportation outdoor instrumentation and medical electronics markets.
To bring the uniquely rugged characteristics of TFEL displays and the magic of the transparent TASEL to a wider audience, Beneq has selected America II Electronics as a new distributor. America II will represent the full range of Lumineq displays. The company will also provide customers with local expertise and support in matching the right display for the needs of each specific application.
