Ion Science Reveals European Expansion
Oct 22 2015
As part of a long term growth strategy to further expand its operations in Europe, leading manufacturer of gas detection instrumentation for occupational health and environmental monitoring, Ion Science (UK) has opened an office in Italy in conjunction with existing partner in the country, LabService Analytica. The company has also appointed Xavier Zinsch as Territory Manager for France.
This move represents a logical next step given Ion Science’s rapid expansion and growing customer base in both countries. The new Italian office has been established in partnership with LabService, Ion Science’s long-standing and highly successful Bologna-based distributor.
“Our expansion in Europe is a major development for the company. Although we have already been doing a meaningful amount of work in Italy and France, this latest initiative will enable us to better serve our customers in these key territories and help to further build our business,” explains Duncan Johns, Managing Director at Ion Science.
Spearheading Ion Science’s efforts in Italy will be Massimo Albertazzi and Dr Ilaria Tramelli, both formerly from LabService.
Ilaria comments: “We are very excited to have this opportunity to lead Ion Science’s expansion into the Italian market. It had recently become apparent that customers would prefer to interact directly with Ion Science as a specialist manufacturer, rather than via a distributor.
“We are confident that the company’s advanced gas detection instrumentation, along with our ability to develop highly successful sales and support strategies, will enable us to provide significant value to businesses in the industrial hygiene, occupational safety and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring sectors.
“Indoor air pollution in particular has been recognised as a significant health issue on a global scale. For this reason, we believe that Ion Science Italy will be a new and highly effective presence for the Italian market,” Ilaria concludes.
Both Ion Science Italy and Xavier will sell and support the full Ion Science portfolio of cutting edge products, including the popular and well proven handheld Tiger PID for reliable and accurate monitoring of VOCs; newly launched TigerLT entry level PID, which offers worldwide Intrinsic Safety (IS) certification for use in potentially explosive atmospheres; TVOC fixed PID detector; Mercury Vapour Indicator (MVI) and range of GasCheck gas leak detectors.
