Metacon AB signed a non-exclusive distribution agreement in Japan with the company Notes, Nagano for its Combined Heat and Power (CHP) product H2PS-5. The agreement is made through Metacon’s subsidiaries Metacon KK in Japan and Helbio SA in Greece.
Notes is a company active in the electronics and energy sector in Japan. Notes brings valuable experience from relevant high-technology areas such as electronics equipment and manufacturing of small-scale solar power generation systems in Japan.
Notes will take on a key role for Metacon in both selling and supporting the H2PS-5 products after sales in Japan. The agreement follows a longer evaluation and collaboration phase between the companies. A new H2PS-5 unit has been manufactured at Metacon’s Helbio site in Greece and will be shipped to Japan during September for local customer demonstration purposes.
“Notes want to enter the fast-growing hydrogen market in Japan and see great potential for the H2PS-5 product. The fit with growing market needs and our plan to build model cases for energy, targeting hydrogen-based regional development, is excellent”.Ogihara, President of Notes.
“We are delighted to close this partnership with Notes. Japan is one of the global front-line markets in the hydrogen sector and a key market for Metacon moving forward. With Notes, we now have a very competent local partner both for sales and for ensuring quality support and customer satisfaction during market introduction and beyond”.Christer Wikner, President and CEO of Metacon.
