Eagleyard Photonics GmbH has severed ties with distributor Market Tech Inc., awarding North American sales and distribution contracts to TeraComm LLC and its spinoff XSoptix LLC. Market Tech has been eagleyard’s distributor in the western U.S. for the past six years, while TeraComm has been its sales partner covering the eastern U.S. for the same period. Eagleyard said it would end its contract with Market Tech at the end of the month, a move it said was intended to “organize our sales channels more efficiently.” Eagleyard develops and produces high-power gallium arsenide (GaAs) laser diodes for applications in aerospace and defense, spectroscopy, medical instrumentation, test and measurement, and material analysis. It is owned by the Toptica Group. For more information, visit www.eagleyard.com.
