Hannover - Toulouse - Detmold – April 15th, 2005 –

WEIDMÜLLER and the IGE+XAO Group announce that they have signed a worldwide strategic partnership during the Hannover Fair.

This partnership covers both technical and commercial issues. The first issue is to develop data exchange between WEIDMÜLLER's and IGE+XAO's products. In so doing, Weidmüller's "RailDesigner" (terminals configuration software) and "PrintJet" (labelling printer) and IGE+XAO's Electrical CAD packages "SEE Electrical Expert" and "SEE Electrical/CADdy++" will communicate.

Second, the two companies will team up worldwide in order to conduct cross-selling and marketing operations. Together, the two companies cover 70 different countries in Europe, America and Asia/Far-East.

Thomas H. Hagen, WEIDMÜLLER's Chairman quotes: "With this cooperation, we enable users from the machine tools and plant engineering fields an easy and fast access to our products range." For Alain Di Crescenzo, IGE+XAO's CEO: "This strategic partnership between two key global players represents a strong added value for customers, as well as a major competitive advantage for both groups".
