UNTERHACHING, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 13, 2018--, a supplier of module-based solutions for power electronics, staged a charity Sudoku challenge at the PCIM Europe show in support of Plan International Deutschland e.V.

The company is proud to announce that visitors stepped up to the challenge, racking up around €11.3K during the fair’s three days. Vincotech matched all contributions.
