Yokogawa Electric Corp. will acquire 100 percent of Ando Electric Co. Ltd shares through a stock swap on October 2002. In relation to this, the two companies have entered into an alliance agreement to reorganize their companies by unifying their businesses and sharing their respective strategies and resources.

Previously, the two companies have jointly been developing products, integrating Yokogawa's device technology with Ando's communication testing technology. In 2001, Yokogawa and Ando introduced to the market an optical communication test equipment using a 40Gbps module developed by Yokogawa. The collaboration in this project reduced manufacturing costs when Yokogawa's just-in-time production method and one-by-one electronic parts procurement system were integrated into Ando's manufacturing lines.

Under this structure, they claim that Yokogawa and Ando as a group can extend a wider range of products and solutions to customers in the field of device test to communication test.
