KATKO Appoints APS Industrial Sole Distributor in Australia

Since the late 1980’s KATKO has supplied Australian industry with switching products under the NHP brand. In the last 30 years hundreds of thousands of these products have been installed in various sectors of Australian industry and they have stood the test of time, with great success. In our next chapter those same products will be solely distributed to the Australian market through APS Industrial under KATKO’s own global brand.

The APS promise is to provide Australian Industry with a new choice. The promise is to listen and to serve customers, professionally, flexibly and comprehensively by providing cutting edge technology and expertise.

Our goal at APS is to support Australian industry to operate safely and to optimise productivity by providing the most advanced technology with the highest quality available in the world. That’s why Katko is a perfect partner for us”, David Hegarty – Managing Director APS Industrial.

KATKO endorses this message and along with APS promises that Australian customers who have trusted KATKO manufactured products for years and years will continue to have access to the products that they are used to, as well as to the broader KATKO global product portfolio. Moving forward these Products will be found in stock at APS Industrial and their partners nationwide.

The decision to partner solely with APS is a major one, has been made with a view to the future sustainable business of Katko and our customers in Australia. The Values of APS Industrial and KATKO align, which is a very important factor for a family owned company. We are extremely excited to strengthen our already close relationship with APS as we start this new chapter. A company is the sum of its people, and the people of APS are truly customer focused, motivated by growth with a high sense of integrity”. Markus Hyryläinen, CEO.
