iSiS-Ex is delighted to announce a new distributor agreement with X-Controls, a rugged and explosion proof computer and accessory specialist based in Norway.
And the partnership gets its first outing at ONS 2012, a biennial exhibition for the global energy industry which takes place in Stavanger, Norway, from 28-31 August.
X-Controls will be exhibiting key products from iSiS-Ex’s best-in-class ATEX range of Zone 1 products, and the new ATEX, IECEx and CSA 19” Zone 2, Class 1 Div 2 PC Workstation that was launched earlier this year.
Find X-Controls/iSiS-Ex in Hall B, Stand 290.
Howard Gould, Managing Director of iSiS-Ex, said:
“It’s very important to us to have a strong, on-the-ground presence in Norway, which is a key global hub for the oil and gas industry. The closer we are to our customers, the better we can service their needs, and it also gives new customers the opportunity to discover our best-in-class range. We’re known as an innovator and once people have tried our products it’s hard for them to go back to their old supplier.”
Arve Leren, General Manager of X-Controls, said:
“This is a perfect match: iSiS-Ex are a rugged and explosion proof HMI specialist, as are we. They were looking for a partner with deep industry knowledge and we were looking for a manufacturer that produced something exceptional. We’ll be using our vast experience – both on the technical development and sales side of the industry – to match iSiS-Ex to customers that need the highly flexible and technologically advanced solutions that their products provide.”
X-Controls was established in collaboration with another offshore related product sales company, Exnor in 2010. They specialise in explosion proof and rugged automation products for the Norwegian market.
Arve Leren began his career in the Norwegian offshore business 15 years ago, working on software and control systems for offshore winch and crane applications. But for the last 12 years he has worked increasingly on the sales side, using his technical expertise to understand and fulfill customer needs.
