Charlotte, NC (October 28, 2022) -

On September 20, 2022, it was announced that the business agreement between LEAD Technologies Inc and GrapeCity Corporation will terminate. The announcement highlighted LEAD’s history and depth within the Japanese marketplace, as well as the success of LEADTOOLS in the developer community. With the end of this business agreement, GrapeCity will no longer sell LEADTOOLS products.

LEAD is pleased to announce that based on a new agreement with ComponentSource, a sales operation will be launched in the ComponentSource Tokyo office for the Japanese version of LEADTOOLS products as of November 1st, 2022. ComponentSource will sell both the Japanese and English versions of LEADTOOLS on behalf of LEAD as the only distributor in Japan. Under previous arrangements, only past versions of LEADTOOLS were made available in the Japanese marketplace. We are thrilled that under this new agreement, we are now able to deliver the latest versions of LEADTOOLS to Japanese developers.

LEAD has been doing business with ComponentSource for more than 25 years both in Japan and globally overseas. LEAD will continue to leverage the successful partnership with ComponentSource so that customers can use LEAD's products with confidence in Japan.

“We have tremendously valued our longstanding history of success in partnership with ComponentSource, as have many of our global LEADTOOLS customers.” said Moe Daher, Founder and CEO of LEAD Technologies. “This opportunity to merge our Japanese customer base together under one unified partnership, will better serve our customers with more direct access to LEAD’s latest product versions as well as a single representative within these local markets.”
