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.”
