News: Pyronix relaunch in Portugal


Rotherham-based security experts, Pyronix, has appointed a new authorised distributor as it re-enters the Portuguese market.

Based in Hellaby, Pyronix is an award-winning manufacturer with an extensive range of electronic security equipment for intruder alarms.

Sanco, a Porto-based family-run business, managed by brothers Nuno Lapa and Sergio Lapa, was officially launched as the latest authorised distributor by Pyronix international sales manager, Kelly Bard, at Segurex 2015 in Lisbon, the biggest exhibition taking place in Portugal targeting security and safety sectors.

Sanco, who have just celebrated their 40th anniversary, originally started as an installation company in 1975, but due to difficulties obtaining security products in the north of Portugal, they decided to address market needs and start a distribution company (Sanco) in 1993. Boasting coverage across Portugal, they have their own in-house and external sales reps, as well as an excellent technical support staff who are all fully trained on the Pyronix range.

Pyronix believes that Sanco was looking to establish a strong and long-term partnership with a new supplier and chose them as it's a brand they trust; thanks to the reputation of producing reliable, high quality products.

Kelly Bard, international sales manager at Pyronix, said: "This is an exciting time for us at Pyronix as we relaunch into the Portuguese market and introduce our latest innovations with the PyronixCloud enabled panels.

"Sanco are the perfect choice as a distributor and it's such a pleasure to be working with them. I'm looking forward to a long and successful partnership between our two companies."

The PyronixCloud is the latest technological innovation from Pyronix, that continues to invest in R&D in Rotherham. Utilising the latest advances in IP technology, the system and app enables the remote control of the home security system from anywhere in the world.

Pyronix is continuing its expansion in Rotherham having acquiring a further 18,000 sq ft of space at Hellaby. A 14,500 sq ft extension of existing premises is also being realised to meet future demands. More of the high end manufacturing is being brought back from China.

The firm sells around £11m worth of products to the UK market and new markets export markets such as Italy, Russia and Poland have been identified where the aim is to replicate the sales success.

Employing 155 staff in the manufacture, sales, production and distribution of high quality security alarms, and with turnover around £22m, the firm exports to over 70 countries worldwide.
