About Murray Percival Company

Murray Percival Company was founded in 1960, and incorporated in the state of Michigan. Percival was approached by the Electrovert Corporation, a company they still represent today, to sell printed circuit board wave soldering equipment. At that time, the use of PCBs was still relatively rare, and the foresight to enter this business was not without risk: the industry had yet to emerge. Today, circuit boards are crucial components of everyday life, used in automobiles, medical equipment, military equipment, avionics, communications, computers, appliances and entertainment products. Electronics are ubiquitous, increasingly mobile and growing every day. 59 years ago, the Murray Percival Company was a pioneer servicing an emerging industry, one that has become a key component in the worldwide market of today’s manufactured goods. The Murray Percival Company is now a leading supplier to the Midwest’s electronics industry and offers literally thousands of products, many of which can be purchased directly from their website.

BPM Welcomes James Cawkell, Global Sales Director at The Adaptsys Group

BPM Welcomes James Cawkell, Global Sales Director at The Adaptsys Group

James Cawkell, Global Sales Director with the Adaptsys Group in the UK stopped by the BPM Microsystem’s offices today on his way to the SemiCon West Trade Show. James has worked with BPM for over 15 years. He spent the morning golfing with some folks from BPM in a classic July 4th battle of the UK vs. the US (3 against 1 best ball– almost fair). In the afternoon, James spent time with several departments to discuss opportunities in Europe. James will be at SemiCon West on July 9 thru 11, 2019 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. If you’re at the show, be sure to stop by booth 5472.

Global Partners Set Sales Records in their Territories

James Cawkell, Global Sales Director for the Adaptsys Group receives the Global Sales Award from James Holava, Global Account Director for BPM Microsystems at the recent SMT Connect Trade Show in Nuremberg, Germany

BPM Microsystems, the global leader in automated programming systems recognizes the 2018 contributions of three of their Channel Partners, with Adaptsys Group receiving the Top Global Partner Award. “Adaptsys has a long history with BPM and epitomizes what we look for in a channel partner,” says Don McMahan, Global Sales Consultant. “I have spent most of my professional career growing sales through channels, and it’s rare to see an outside organization with the entrepreneurial spirit mixed with a great ground-game like the guys at Adaptsys,” says McMahan. The Adaptsys Group is headquartered in the UK, with sales and support personnel covering most of Europe.

The Adaptsys Group has partnered with BPM for over 15 years. James Cawkell, Global Sales Director at The Adaptsys Group, comments on their partnership with BPM: “Whether it’s working Electronica (a huge trade show in Munich) with BPM, consulting together on a new project, or installing the latest Automated Programming System, it’s always enjoyable to work with folks who work as hard (and smart) as we do!”

“We not only wish to celebrate Adaptsys as number one last year globally,” says McMahan, “but two other partners in strategic regions for BPM as well and I personally want to congratulate Interlatin for Latin America and iNETest in Asia. As the details below highlight, we are delighted and honored to have such great partners around the globe. Thank you all.”

Best in Regional Sales for 2018 in Latin America/South America is Interlatin. Although only working together for a little over 2 years, Interlatin has distinguished themselves in several ways. They were founded in 1999 and today have almost 500 employees, including sales, field engineers and service delivery in major manufacturing cities in Mexico: Guadalajara, Reynosa, Matamoros, Monterrey, Queretaro, Chihuahua, Ciudad del Juarez, Tijuana, etc. The local support presence means parts, service, and support are available 24/7/365. Having that level of support has made the difference in at least one recent deal, where the facility in Mexico went with a “different” supplier than their European parent company.

“This organization embodies the BPM reputation for service, and they work hard to please our customers as if it was their own brand,” says Armando Garcia, Regional Account Manager for BPM. “We are very fortunate and pleased to have Interlatin as a member of our team!”

Weiming Chin, BPM Sales Manager, and Dragon Zhang, BPM Regional Sales Manager, present the award certificate to Boey GP, iNETest General Manager, and Jessen Hoe, iNETest Sales Director.

Earning the honor of Best in Regional Sales for 2018 in Asia is iNETest, located in Penang, Malaysia. According to BPM Regional Manager for Asia, Dragon Zhang, “BPM has partnered with iNETest for over 12 years mainly because of their single-minded focus on the customer. It’s their belief that their growth as a company is entirely based on a high level of customer satisfaction. iNETest has the fastest response times in the region, with dedicated personnel that handles customer service, repairs, and technical inquiries.”

Zhang adds that “I love working with the team at iNETest; these guys share our goals and are relentless in making sure their customers get the best solution, with the best service, for the best value. Together, we have grown for more than a decade, along with our customers.”
