Barcelona, 7 June 2017:

Tech Data Europe has today announced a new Europe-wide distribution agreement with EpiSensor, a specialist manufacturer of sensors and related systems for Industrial IoT environments.

EpiSensor is now part of Tech Data’s growing SmartForce IoT offering from its Smart IoT Solutions practice. The SmartForce offering comprises a portfolio of validated end-to-end solutions for systems integrators, value added resellers and service providers, providing them with the tools they need to deliver solutions and products quickly to the emerging IoT market.

Victor Paradell, vice president, Tech Data Smart IoT & Analytics, EMEA, said: “Tech Data is committed to providing our customers with all the building blocks they need to quickly build and scale reliable Industrial IoT solutions.
