APS Industrial appointed sole distributor of KATKO

The existing national distribution agreement between APS Industrial (APS) and switching solution manufacturer KATKO has been strengthened, with APS now the sole distributor of the company’s products in Australia.

The announcement builds on an agreement that saw APS gain national distributorship of KATKO switching solutions in 2018.

“In early 2018, APS opened a new channel to market for KATKO’s switching solutions and matched the first-class product offering with the highest level of service and support,” said David Hegarty, Managing Director of APS Industrial.

“Building on the strength of that foundation, APS are very proud that KATKO have now chosen us as their sole channel to market. All of the team are excited by the opportunity to service more of the market through this streamlined distribution model that makes us the true home of KATKO.

“We understand that there are customers who have previously relied on channels outside of APS to access the KATKO products. Our message to these customers is simple — we will work tirelessly to become a trusted partner for your switching and project needs. Put us to the test!” he said.

From isolating switches for distribution boards and solar applications, through to load break switches up to 800 A to support local switchboard builders, KATKO has marketed itself as the manufacturer of choice for Australian industry for decades.

“There is no denying the new choice that APS has brought to the Australian industrial electrical industry since their launch in 2018. We were a proud foundation manufacturing partner and today’s announcement is a clear statement of our intent to grow alongside APS as we together support Australian industry,” said Markus Hyryläinen, CEO of KATKO.

“First and foremost, this decision makes it easier than ever before for customers to access our switching solutions. Moving forward, it also enables us to further develop our switching range and explore new product development areas with APS,” he said.
