Yokogawa reaches deal with GasSecure
Tokyo, July 6, 2014
Yokogawa Electric Corporation said it has signed an agreement with GasSecure AS for distribution of its ISA100 Wireless-based gas detectors through Yokogawa’s global sales network.
Under this agreement, Yokogawa will distribute GasSecure’s ISA100 Wireless gas detectors through its global sales and service network.
The growing need to improve plant safety by installing more gas detectors and replacing out of date detection systems is driving the demand for wireless gas detectors, which have the added advantage of eliminating the need for wiring and thus are easier to install and cost less.
As such, Yokogawa will be better able to satisfy its customers’ needs by incorporating wireless gas detectors in its field wireless system solutions. At the same time, GasSecure will be able to utilize Yokogawa’s global sales and service network to expand its wireless gas detector business.
With this agreement, Yokogawa gains access to GasSecure’s wireless gas detectors and thereby strengthens its lineup of plant field wireless solutions and enhances its support of health, safety, security, and environment (HSSE) management applications.
This agreement will also allow GasSecure to gain access to Yokogawa’s global sales and service network and thereby boost the sales of its wireless gas detectors.
Commenting on the deal, Masatoshi Nakahara, the director and senior VP of Yokogawa’s Industrial Automation Platform Business HQ, said, “We selected GasSecure, a leading supplier of gas detectors, and believe that their best-in-class ISA100 Wireless solution will allow us to broaden the use of our field wireless systems.”
GasSecure’s CEO Knut Sandven, said: "GasSecure selected Yokogawa for their reliable and high-quality wireless infrastructure. We are very excited about entering into this agreement as it will give us access to Yokogawa’s extensive global sales and service network."-TradeArabia News Service
