Anglia is significantly strengthening its offering of solutions for the HMI (Human Machine Interface) following its appointment as distributor by Swiss owned EAO, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality switches, keyboards and other control elements.
Anglia will be stocking the most popular EAO switch and indicator families in its UK warehouse, and offering them through Anglia Live. Products covered include panel indicators, robust industrial switches, emergency stop buttons, panel mount switches, keylock switches, panel mount buzzers, vandal resistant switches, indicators and selector switches. Many can be specified to incorporate illumination, legends and other customisation options, and these are fully available to customers within the relationship.
Commenting, David Pearson, technical director of Anglia, said: “EAO has a heritage in the transportation industry, which demands solutions that are high quality, suitable for high levels of repeated use, completely safe and reliable. These are also characteristics sought by many of our industrial and machinery customers, and we are anticipating a great fit in many applications. The HMI is a key design area for many of our customers, and we look forward to working with them to create solutions that are innovative, intuitive and reliable.”
Alex Grout, managing director of EAO Ltd, added: “Anglia has an extremely strong design team, and has a culture of selling a solution rather than a product. They share our passion for and fascination with creating solutions that address the needs of the people using the system, support the functions of the machine and respond to the requirements of the environment. We believe that we have a strong partnership that will work together for the benefit of the customer.”
