Atlanta-based Radiant Systems Inc., a producer of computer hardware and software for the retail and hospitality industries, has reached an agreement with a Shanghai-based distributor that will broaden its presence in China.

Radiant, which already has manufacturing operations in the Asian nation, will allow Rinpak Technology Ltd., a branch of Rinpak Technology Holdings Ltd., to sell and support Radiant’s solutions to China’s rapidly growing restaurant and hotel market.

“China represents a major opportunity for Radiant and our customers,” said David Griffin, Radiant’s vice president for international business. “Securing the right local partner is critical to our growth in the region.”

Rinpak, which has served multiple firms in many Chinese cities since its inception in 2001, will not only help Radiant with its new customers, but it will also provide support to Radiant’s existing customers in China.

Since its founding in 1985, Radiant has accumulated more than 85,000 clients in more than 100 countries.
