Universal Instruments has announced the appointment of Silgal-Sociedade Internacional de Importacoes to handle its sales and support activities in Portugal. This addition further extends the corporation's infrastructure across Europe; a strategy designed to augment Universal's own sales force and global services network.

Founded in 1985 by Jose Madureira, Silgal is dedicated to the electronics manufacturing industry and supplies assembly solutions from consumables to complete production lines. The company already represents principals in the screen printing, soldering, inspection, handling and materials sectors, employing a dozen people in sales, service and technical support roles. Besides expanding the range of support services currently offered by Universal, the new appointment will serve to locate support staff closer to customers in Portugal.

Silgal boasts an enviable list of blue chip customers in many sectors of the Portuguese electronics market, particularly automotive – the primary electronics industry in the country. Silgal is ISO9001 certified.
