Milford, Mass. – THAT Corporation, a leading provider of high-quality ICs for professional audio, has appointed Microtek Inc. as THAT’s new distributor in Japan. With offices in Tokyo, Osaka, and Kanagawa, Microtek serves a broad cross section of Japan’s electronics manufacturers, including many of the best-known audio companies.

“THAT Corporation’s highly regarded audio IC products are a strong addition to our distribution portfolio,” said Jun Iizuka, President, Microtek. “THAT’s focus on professional audio will help us expand our complementary products in this market segment, while increasing THAT’s penetration within Japan’s world-famous pro audio companies. Microtek is well positioned to provide local support throughout Japan for THAT’s customers, new and old.”

In order to insure a smooth transition, Sadao Honda, founder and director of THAT’s previous distributor, MON-SMC, will continue to offer technical support to existing customers and Microtek.

“Our IC sales are growing worldwide,” said Marv Hahn, THAT Corporation’s IC Sales Manager. “For the Japanese market, we sought a distributor with the resources and relationships necessary to support both existing and prospective business.”

Les Tyler, President of THAT, added, “Several of THAT’s latest pro audio ICs have resonated with Japanese pro audio manufacturers. Microtek is the right partner for us to help leverage THAT’s strength into a larger share of the Japanese market.”
