Hansford Sensors opens new US office

Hansford Sensors, the leading UK based manufacturer of industrial accelerometers, has announced it is expanding itspresence in the US by opening a joint sales and service operation, based in Texas.  This new office will be the latest addition to the Hansford group of wholly or partly owned subsidiaries in Poland, Australia, Germany and India plus an extensive sales network of over 30 independent Hansford Sensors distributors around the world.

The new company in the United States will be a joint venture between Hansford Sensors, Reliability Direct and STI and will be headed up by Dave Gallagher of Reliability Direct, who has many years’ experience working with condition monitoring across a wide range of industrial sectors.

Managing Director of Hansford Sensors, Chris Hansford, remarks: “This is a significant step for Hansford Sensors.  We have been selling into the North American market for some time now and it feels like the time is right for us to open an office and increase our presence there.  The shift from preventative to predictive maintenance in many industry sectors means that the global condition monitoring market is expected to grow significantly and as a company we have an ambitious growth strategy to meet that.  This new operation is an integral part of our programme of developing a strong network of local sales and customer support centres in key locations on each continent.  It is important to us to be able to offer excellent and local customer and technical support for our products.”

Hansford Sensors manufactures an extensive range of industrial accelerometers, including 4-20mA transmitters, AC vibration and velocity sensors, switches and switch modules, plus enclosures, connectors and cables. Many of these are engineered to meet the needs of individual customers or specific applications, with all products being backed by comprehensive customer and technical support services.
