The demand for optical and acoustic signal devices in the UK has increased steadily in recent years. WERMA products are no strangers to the market place having been available from a number of distribution sources for the last five years. The new facility based in Kettering Northants will enable the company to react quickly and efficiently to customer demand and offer also a complete technical service from the experienced local team.

The aim of “getting close to the customer”, a key objective for WERMA, thus becomes a reality. This aim is not just a question of WERMA jumping on a customer service bandwagon – it reflects, in fact, the very essence of the corporate objectives of the parent company, developed and honed over years of experience in the market place.

A competent team with years of experience
The team in Kettering is led by Simon Adams, who, together with the National Sales Manager Pete Osborn, have many years of experience in the UK signal technology market. They are assisted by Christiane Kundt who will run the office and Martin King in charge of the warehouse.

A worldwide competency in quality and innovation
In addition to the newly opened subsidiary in the UK WERMA, with its head office in Rietheim, South West Germany, has sales offices in Switzerland and China. Agents and Distributors in a further 35 countries assure worldwide coverage for its products.

With over 50 years specialist experience in signal technology, WERMA rightly considers itself to be a leading trendsetter and innovator in the industry. All WEERMA products meet recognised international standards and are manufactured under the recognised quality management system DIN EN ISO 9001: 2000.
