Solid State plc

("Solid State", the "Group" or the "Company")


New Power Solutions distribution franchise won


Solid State plc (AIM: SOLI), the AIM listed manufacturer of computing, power and communications products, and value added distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce a distribution franchise for VPT, a leading global provider of power conversion solutions for the rapid deployment of critical power systems in avionics, military and space applications.


Solid State Supplies has been chosen by VPT due to its extensive military and aerospace knowledge, its certification to AS9120, its existing industry client base and value added distribution capabilities.   The franchise is for exclusive rights to UK and Ireland and includes the transfer of the existing client base.


VPT has been selling into the UK market for 18 years to a loyal client base.  Its products do not overlap with the current Solid State Supplies range giving the opportunity to develop and expand the client's reach and product representation into relevant markets.

John Macmichael, Managing Director of Solid State Supplies, commented:

"The VPT product range complements the existing Solid State power operations.  They are an innovative, high quality supplier where we are confident that our approach will increase sales beyond the current run rate and broaden the customer base."
