A British distribution company is pleased to report record sales last year, which can in part be attributed to a very successful partnership, which was forged at the beginning of the year.
On the 1 January 2019, Somerset based LIMAB UK was appointed the exclusive distributor for LumaSense Technologies, an Advanced Energy Company, for their range of infrared thermometers and thermal imagers for industrial markets in the UK and Ireland.
LIMAB UK is a leading distributor of non-contact laser and optical measuring systems for industrial applications. Their products and services are used by manufacturing companies to improve efficiency, reduce manufacturing costs and improve quality through measurement testing and process control. They have a wide range of laser sensors and measuring systems for in-process measurement of thickness, width, profile and dimensions, used extensively in the steel, sawmills, building materials and other industries.
LumaSense Technologies, one of the world’s most trusted providers of innovative infrared temperature and gas sensing devices was purchased by Advanced Energy in September 2018.
LumaSense Technologies, based in Germany, is a leading manufacturer of infrared thermometers and thermal imagers including the well-known and trusted brands of Impac pyrometers and Mikron thermal imaging cameras.
LIMAB UK, who were already the official distributors for the BETA LaserMike LaserSpeed range in the UK, Ireland and Benelux, NDC Technologies’ NIR moisture sensors and Dynascan’s seal integrity and leak detection solutions, approached LumaSense Technologies at the end of 2018.
LumaSense Technologies, who were at the time deciding whether to open a sales office in the UK or to appoint a UK distributor, decided to proceed with appointing a distributor and the partnership was formed. Peter Harvey, Channel manager at LumaSense Technologies, said: “We were delighted to have LIMAB UK as our distribution channel in the UK and Ireland, they have a track record of supplying precision optical and IR equipment for industrial measurement and understand the technology and the industrial market.”
LIMAB UK now distribute all of Advanced Energy’s Impac pyrometers and Mikron thermal imaging cameras, FurnaceSpection thermal imaging systems as well as blackbody calibration sources, and Luxtron fiber optic temperature probes and modules.
The addition of the LumaSense Technologies/Advanced Energy product range has seen LIMAB UK appoint a new Technical Sales Manager in the form of Jack Miller, who brings with him a wealth of machinery sales and customer service experience, which he developed at the manufacturing company CME. Jack Miller, technical sales manager at LIMAB UK said: “The new range of LumaSense Technologies/AE products was an excellent complement to our existing range of laser and IR measuring sensors and systems. We were delighted to be appointed as distributor back in January and the partnership has proved to be very successful. We look forward to working with LumaSense Technologies moving forward and developing the partnership in 2020.”
