APS Industrial appointed sole distributor of KATKO

APS Industrial (APS) has announced that its existing Australian national distribution agreement with Finnish company KATKO has been changed to sole distributor status.

The original national distribution agreement with KATKO dates back to July 2018.

“KATKO is a world leader in innovation, committed to designing products and solutions tailored to a range of industry needs, and these are values that very much align with APS Industrial,” said David Hegarty, Managing Director of APS Industrial at the time.

Speaking of the upgraded arrangement, Hegarty said: “In 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. 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.”

KATKO’s switching solutions range from isolating switches for distribution boards and solar applications through to load break switches up to 800 A to support local switchboard builders.

“There is no denying the new choice that APS has brought to the Australian industrial electrical industry since their launch in 2018,” said Markus Hyryläinen, CEO of KATKO. “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.

“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.”
