The directors of Temperature Controls, Les Friend and Andy Brown, are proud to announce the acquisition of the local South African company, Extech Safety Systems.
In March 2005 Extech was sold to Temperature Controls, already one of South Africa's most successful companies in the temperature and process industries. The decision was made when the managing director of Extech, Andrew Jaworski, decided to retire.
Temperature Controls already represents MTL in several product categories, those being surge protection, fieldbus power supplies and wiring accessories, and process I/O.
Extech Safety Systems has been the agent for the UK-based company, MTL, for almost 25 years, and has successfully marketed and sold the range of zener barriers and intrinsically safe isolators, which form the bulk of the Hazardous Area Business Unit. A major advantage for the change in management is that the existing staff from Extech will stay with the revamped operation, and Andrew Jaworski has offered his services in a consultancy capacity to ensure proper and adequate training for the Temperature Controls external and internal sales team.
Initially Extech will remain a separate company from Temperature Controls; however, they will operate from the same premises. Les Friend and Andy Brown are now the directors of Extech Safety Systems, and K.V. Dahya will remain as the technical manager. Trevor Fletcher will take up the national marketing manager position. Chandrika Vallabh will handle all Extech accounts and Thea Schroder will be involved in internal sales.
Both companies have much in common, not just on the products side, but also in their internal and external business dealings. Temperature Controls and Extech have joined forces to create a powerful representation for MTL products in South Africa.
