DSE strengthens in cooperation with Virinco

DSE enters into strategic cooperation agreement with Norwegian Virinco AS, thereby strengthening its position as the leading manufacturer of test systems and solutions on the Scandinavian market.
DSE A/S in Horsens has recently entered into strategic cooperation agreement with Norwegian
Virinco AS concerning their well-known WATS statistical software.

WATS is a statistical programme that can be interfaced to an already existing test platform to
extract essential reports such as yield reports, and perform test step analyses. It represents an
important statistical tool for companies using test equipment in their production, in research and
development, and in laboratories.

By entering into this cooperation agreement with Virinco, DSE gets access to the best products on
the market. The products are web-based and designed especially for manufacturers who are
moving from local to global production. "This means that our customers in Scandinavia can now
extract statistical information directly from their production in, for example, China – and get access
to it from the internet", explains Jørgen Kjærsgaard, Sales Manager at DSE. And he continues:
“This makes the WATS product unique and ideal for large, international manufacturers".

At present, DSE is a market leader in test solutions in Denmark, and they are about to gain a
strong foothold in the other Nordic countries as well. Virinco is a market leader in Norway, and as
both companies specialise in TestStand, they can now supplement each another as total systems
suppliers of test-related software and hardware. It is the future intention that DSE's Test Engine be
capable of logging to Virinco's WATS.

"With this cooperation we are making our sales apparatus in Scandinavia stronger", states Tom
Andres Lomsdalen, Design Engineer at Virinco, and the continues: "We look very much forward to
cooperating with a professional, Scandinavian-based player on the market. We can strengthen
WATS's position in Scandinavia and in the electronics market in general, offering even better and
fully optimised test solutions", concludes Tom Andres Lomsdal.
