SALT LAKE CITY July 3, 2006 MasterControl Inc. today announced that it has selected Iperion of the Netherlands and SPEC Control and Automation of Israel as international distributors of the MasterControl™ integrated quality management suite. The two companies were chosen for their expertise and experience in regulated industries.
"MasterControl has enjoyed vast growth in the FDA-regulated sector within the North American market. International resellers allow us to expand that growth abroad," said Greg Beeber, MasterControl's vice president, global alliances. "The ability to leverage existing expertise is paramount to our current and future success."
MasterControl launched a reseller program last year, and Smarttech Consulting Services Ltd. of Cotswolds, U.K., became its first international reseller.
Iperion, based in Vlijmen, the Netherlands, is an international consulting firm specializing in quality management and validation services.

"Iperion's focus on quality processes in regulated industries is strategic for us," said Beeber. "Iperion and MasterControl have a tremendous amount of synergy."
Karel Bastiaanssen, Iperion's managing director, said there is a growing demand for integrated quality management tools in Europe. "With MasterControl we are well positioned to fulfill the customer needs in this area," he said.
SPEC Control and Automation, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, specializes in marketing software tools for the process automation industry, which includes food, chemical, dairy, brewery, pharmaceutical, and other companies with industrial process operations.
"Israel is a market ripe for MasterControl technology. We're confident about SPEC Control's ability to cultivate many new relationships on our behalf," said Beeber.
