Tecate Expands Distribution with Maxwell to Include Asia
San Diego, CA — Tecate Industries, a supplier of ultracapacitors and capacitors, has further expanded its distribution agreement with Maxwell Technologies, a developer and manufacturer of ultracapacitors, which deliver innovative, cost-effective energy storage and power delivery solutions. Already an authorized distributor in North America and India, the new agreement adds the sales and supply chain services for the Far East.

According to the new expanded agreement, Tecate will distribute Maxwell's full ultracapacitor portfolio within Greater China and Hong Kong, along with the ASEAN countries including Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Aside from providing an additional sales channel for Maxwell's ultracapacitors, the contract enhances both Tecate's and Maxwell's ability to offer a complement of design and logistical support to customers in the Americas, in collaboration with their Asian contract manufacturing partners.

Maxwell Technologies' ultracapacitor offering features RoHS-compliant parts in a broad range of sizes and modular configurations. Notably, their Boostcap® Series of cells, modules, and accessories are widely employed in such applications as consumer electronics, hybrid cars, and renewable energy sources. Their power-modules are commonly specified for use in UPS, telecommunications, lighter duty industrial electronics applications, as well as consumer products. Tecate's PowerBurst® ultracapacitor modules, using Maxwell components, will now also be marketed throughout Asia.
