IN-Circuit Design Pty Ltd , the Mentor Graphics PADS distributor in Australia, has been awarded two distributor awards by Mentor Graphics, Board Systems Division.
Jim Martens, Manager, Product Marketing, PADS Solutions Group, Mentor Graphics Corporation presented Barry Olney with two awards: Top 2005 Asian Distributor Marketing and Top 2005 Worldwide Distributor Marketing.
The awards were presented to Barry Olney at the annual sales kick-off meeting this year in Macau, China.
Mr Olney says the awards are a sign of the acceptance of the new PADS product line and the exceptional growth in business in Australia over the past year.
In early 2004, the PADS and HyperLynx products were virtual unknown in Australia as they had never been promoted to any great extent.
In-Circuit Design took over the distributorship in May 2004 and both product awareness and sales have improved dramatically since. In 2005 the company experienced a 138% growth in business,
As the industry standard, Mentor Graphics PADS remains the number one PCB design system in the world. It provides everything needed to complete the most complex designs simply and quickly in a flexible design environment.
"These awards are a testament to In-Circuit Design's knowledge of the EDA marketplace, and specifically, the Australian marketplace," said Mr Martens.
