Patol, the Reading-based specialist in industrial fire safety equipment and systems, has strengthened its team with the appointment of Ian Avanzo as Regional Sales Engineer.
Ian brings more than 12 years of experience in fire and security to his new role, most recently having worked for electrical product wholesale company Rexel UK where he was a Sales Engineer. Commenting on his appointment Ian said – “At Rexel I was responsible for designing fire and security systems, selling products within the range and also for training. I’m looking forward to the challenges at Patol and, having already undertaken training on the Patol systems, I’ve been impressed by the technology.”
Ian will be working across the whole Patol product range of specialist fire, heat and smoke detection products, including linear heat detection cable (LHDC), fibre optic linear heat sensing, aspirating smoke detection (ASD), infrared heat and flame sensors, and thermal imaging heat detection.
Patol Sales Director Kelvin Miller comments “Ian joins us at an exciting time for the company as we extend our product offering with the addition of thermal imaging cameras and a fibre optic option for our heat detection cable. His experience in the industry will be a real benefit as we look to further develop the wide-ranging applications in which Patol systems are used, from power generation, heavy industry and conveyors to food processing, waste recycling plants and petrochemical facilities.”
