LAKE FOREST, Calif., Feb. 6, 2008 - Wonderware announced that InSource Solutions, an independent Wonderware software distribution partner, has signed a new distributor agreement and will conduct business as Wonderware Southeast.

Headquartered in Richmond, Va., InSource has been a Wonderware distributor for 11 years.

"Wonderware has developed new, high customer value technologies in the last few years and we anticipate even more industry advancements in coming years," said Aaron Evans, InSource Solutions vice president.

"This agreement is the next major stage in the development of our long-standing relationship with InSource," said Norm Thorlakson, Wonderware vice president of North American sales.
