LEADER Electronics Corporation Establishes LEADER Europe Limited
Yokohama, Japan, September 12, 2017 – LEADER Electronics Corporation announces the formation of LEADER Europe Limited as a dedicated business platform for the European region with effect from from October 1st, 2017. LEADER has operated a UK representative office in London since August 2014, managed by Koichi Fukagawa and (from August 2015) Kevin Salvidge, both of whom will continue to develop the European market for LEADER.
“This is the culmination of two years of hard work,” Kevin Salvidge comments. “When we initially discussed this project back in 2015, we hoped to be in a position to propose to Japan the formation of LEADER Europe Limited during 2018. Being able to announce the company’s establishment 12 months ahead of schedule is testament to the skill of the LEADER team in Japan and the engagement of our European channel partners who are actively introducing our products to their customers.”
The formation of LEADER Europe Limited brings added significance for Leader to at the mid-September 2017 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam. LEADER will continue to showcase its innovative approach to test and measurement, including intuitive real-time false colour and graphical displays which ensure that both operational and production staff can maximise the quality of their content. Technicians still have full access to the classic waveform monitoring and vectorscope tools.
LEADER Europe Limited will operate from dedicated offices at First Central 200 in London’s Park Royal, supporting its existing customer base and its expanding team of channel partners throughout Europe.
LEADER Electronics Corporation (www.leader.co.jp) develops, manufactures and sells electronic measuring instruments in Japan and internationally. LEADER products, including 4K HDR waveform monitors and rasterizers, are specified for research, development, broadcast, production and service applications. Since the company’s establishment in 1954, LEADER has contributed innovative measurement technology for sectors of industry such as home appliances, television broadcasting and mobile telephones.
Progressing with measurement technology as the basis of our business, LEADER has evolved its products and supporting services to meet the demands of each era and will continue to pursue various forms of value provision into the future. LEADER test instruments are high-precision, reliable, easy to use, compact and accountant-friendly. LEADER innovations include the world’s first 4K waveform monitor (the award-winning LV5490) plus the intuitive CINELITE® and CINEZONE® monitoring tools which allow creatives to make optimal use of available dynamic range and luminance.
Manufacturing quality is built into Leader products every step of the way. Only the finest parts are used for optimum reliability. At each production run, sub-assemblies are separately tested before they are integrated into the finished product which is then further tested. Less than 0.1 per cent of all LEADER products made are ever returned for warranty repair or adjustment.
