OCTOBER 6, 2008--Adept Technology (Livermore, CA, USA; www.adept.com), a provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, has announced its expansion into the Mexican market for its products and the signing of Automatizaciones Garco S.A. de C.V. of Monterrey, Mexico as an exclusive distributor for Mexico. Mexico currently has a fast-growing food packaging market requiring high-speed automation solutions. The Adept Quattro s650 robot is designed for high-speed manufacturing, packaging, material handling, and assembly applications and is suitable for this expanding regional market.

Under the terms of the agreement, Automatizaciones Garco S.A. de C.V. will be the exclusive distributor in Mexico for Adept's complete portfolio of robotics, controls, vision, and software products.

"Garco is having great success in the food and medical packaging sector where both cleanliness issues and the rising cost of manual labor are forcing manufacturers to seek robotic solutions to historically manual processes," says John Dulchinos, president and CEO for Adept Technology. "With this partnership we will continue our expansion initiative into this region and Garco's customers will benefit by having access to the Adept product line that is ideally suited for the food and packaging sectors."
