AMETEK Land award consignment stock agreement

AMETEK Land award consignment stock agreement

Thursday 3rd October 2013

AMETEK Land, the world leader in design and application of infrared temperature measurement for industry, has awarded Thorite a major consignment stock agreement for the supply of pneumatic and process products.

Thorite won the agreement in the face of heavy competition from over a dozen competing pneumatics suppliers and will now provide the majority of Land's requirements, centred on a wide range of high quality products manufactured by Festo, Norgren and Burkert.

Phil Wilson, Land's Contracts Manager, is delighted with the new arrangement and said: "There are two major benefits behind the implementation of this consignment stock agreement with Thorite, which is the UK's biggest independent distributor of pneumatic products and process systems. The first relates to the most keenly priced supply of leading pneumatic components that we can incorporate into our internationally acclaimed product range, ensuring we can maintain our competitive edge within the market. The second ensures zero downtime, enabling our infrared instruments to be delivered on time, every time. I look forward to working closely with Thorite's expert personnel and am confident the agreement will be mutually successful."

Land is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., based in Dronfield near Sheffield specialising in infrared temperature measurement and combustion & environmental monitoring. The company's products are used extensively in applications as diverse as steel, glass, aluminium, mineral processing, power generation, utility and aircraft gas turbines and many other industries. AMEKTEK, Inc. is a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices & motors.
