"AFCON, headquartered in Israel, sells their products on a worldwide basis," explained Roy Kok, VP of Sales and Marketing of Kepware Technologies. "After meeting AFCON at SPS/IPC/Drives show Drivers in Germany, we worked with them in evaluating our KEPServerEX product. That quickly led to a reseller relationship."
