Vuzix Corp., a Rochester supplier of smart glasses and augmented reality technology, has signed a distribution agreement with Capestone bv, a Netherlands-based distribution company. Vuzix has received its first stocking order for smart glasses from Capestone for immediate delivery.
Capestone has offices in the Netherlands and Germany and is a leading distributor within the Benelux Union in Europe. The company provides 4G/5G hardware and related mobile solution technologies to telecoms and IT resellers, system integrators, service providers and manufacturers within Europe and elsewhere.
“Vuzix smart glasses are complementary to our current portfolio of mission-critical communications and wireless WAN solutions. Vuzix mobility solutions are highly applicable in the industries in which we operate and also ensure that we can tap into a new market of AR technology,” said Capestone Sales Manager ATEX & Rugged Devices Patrick Eijsackers. “We optimally support our customers to get the most out of technology and we see an increasing demand for augmented reality in the workplace and for use in enterprises. Capestone is looking forward to starting the distribution of Vuzix smart glasses and expanding sales all over Europe.
The companies did not disclose the size or dollar value of the order.
“Our distribution agreement with Capestone further strengthens our presence in Europe, a region which offers solid growth opportunities for Vuzix smart glasses across many industry verticals,” said Vuzix President and CEO Paul Travers. “Vuzix looks forward to an expanding distribution relationship with Capestone that spans all of our current smart glasses products and accessories, as well as future ones.”
