IAR Systems has signed an agreement with Kitron to become an IAR Systems distributor for Norway. With an experienced team of development engineers, Kitron can undertake assignments ranging from simple development work to complete product packages. Kitron supports its customers from concept to volume production in one of its manufacturing plants.
