DTx became a Contec Group company at the end of 2012 when it was acquired by Contec Co., Ltd. (Contec) headquartered in Osaka, Japan. Prior to the acquisition, Contec USA was the sole entity responsible for marketing and selling Contec’s industrial control technology products and services in the America’s. In January, all Contec USA business will transition to DTx. DTx’s official company name will become CONTEC DTx INC.
“The alliance between Contec and DTx is a natural fit. Over the past year we have focused on integrating our business operations and exploring how we can best leverage the strengths of each organization,” commented Todd Stirtzinger, DTx President & CEO. “By synergizing DTx’s existing strengths in systems engineering, integration and life cycle management with Contec’s extensive portfolio of industrial control technology products and services, we are able to support our clients with a broader set of capabilities and solutions. We now offer more complete & unique solutions beyond the processor-based systems and custom displays.”

In 2013, DTx added the Contec product line which includes industrial computers, wireless network,data acquisition (DAQ), and control & measurement products.
The transition of the Contec USA business to DTx will greatly expand the support available to existing Contec USA clients. Our goal is a smooth and successful transition for our Contec USA clients, said Stirtzinger, who touts an expanded US-based support team, broader range of product & services, and expanded US production and logistics facilities as some of the benefits our Contec USA clients will experience as a result of this change.
