Contel and Kepware have been working together for almost 15 years, during that time Contel had performed dozens of control & automation projects that rely on Kepware’s solutions and uses them in order to easily communicate between the software level and the PLC and automation level.

Recently, the two companies agreedto expand the services and products offered in the Israeli market, as a result of that Contel has become the local distributor and will provide a full range of services regarding Kepware’s solutions such as presale support and evaluation support, sales, project service and more.

Additionally, Contel will hold several professional training courses a year at Contel’s training center. Courses dates are published in our website (

Sales Channels and System Integrators

All of Kepware’s products are available for download in the company’s website ( in an evaluation version that allows 2 hours of use in order to supply enough time for the evaluator to get a proof of concept.

Contel supports each evaluator during the evaluation process (end-user or SI) and will provide the appropriate services in order to assist him with a POC.

Contel is distributing Kepware’s solution to system integrator as well as to end-users.
to avoid competition, we created a special program for system integrators that is available to any SI who would like to resell Kepware’s solutions and is qualified to do so.
