Katko, Grace appoint APS Industrial as national distributor

Switch manufacturer Katko has appointed APS Industrial as its master national distribution partner. The agreement, which came into effect on 1 July, further strengthens APS Industrial’s ability to fully service Australian industry with a broad portfolio of industrial low- and medium-voltage electrical and automation products,.

Based in Finland and with manufacturing facilities both there and in Poland, Katko’s products are sold in over 70 countries (and six continents) around the world.

David Hegarty, Managing Director of APS Industrial, said Katko is committed to designing products and solutions tailored to a range of industry needs, and these are values that very much align with APS Industrial.

“Using these synergies as the foundation of our partnership, we are very excited by what we will together be able to provide Australian industry through this market-leading range of switches and switching solutions,” said Hegarty.

Separately, US-based Grace Engineered Products, a provider of electrical safety product solutions, has also appointed APS Industrial as a national distributor.

The deal will see APS bring to market a complete range of permanent electrical safety devices (PESDs), led by the GracePESDs range of voltage indicators and the GracePort range of communication ports.

“The Grace Engineered distribution agreement forms a very nice addition to our growing product portfolio and will particularly appeal to switchboard and control panel builders. These quality voltage indicators, test points and combination PESDs promote a safe work environment and save lives,” said Hegarty.

“In addition to local stockholdings we can also draw on the required technical expertise to support these ranges — it’s another exciting outcome that is designed to better serve local customers with highest levels of customer service and delivery.”
