Pyreos, a manufacturer of miniature, rugged, pyroelectric, mid-infrared sensors and detectors which respond faster and minimise power consumption, today announced it has appointed GVZ Components Srl, a leading electronic component distributor based in Milan, as its new Italian-based distributor. The addition of GVZ is part of the Pyreos growth strategy which has expanding distributor coverage as one of its critical elements.

Pyreos is at the forefront of sensor and detector technology, developing market leading products that respond faster, improve responsivity and minimise power consumption for gas, flame, food safety and oil applications. GVZ is a well-established distributor with over 40 years’ experience and a strong business in all markets relevant to Pyreos. Today’s news underscores a steady growth trend for Pyreos and will further accelerate growing sales to this important region. Pyreos recently extended its product line in response to worldwide demand for fast, accurate measurement of gases and fluids in traditional and new applications such as anaesthesia and refrigerants.

“This relationship with GVZ will accelerate growth in our traditional market segments, and also give us access to those customers who already have longstanding relationships with GVZ,” said Keith Pruden, VP Sales at Pyreos. “GVZ’s technical skillset and market knowledge are a perfect match to our needs and that is why we chose them. We’ve already seen revenue growth this year attributed to a stronger and broadened distribution channel and are looking forward to sustained activity in the Southern European region thanks to this new partnership.”

“The addition of the Pyreos portfolio to our line card compliments our entire range and means we can really offer our clients a wide choice of components, regardless of the requirement,” said Dr. Paolo Gariboldi, President & CEO of GVZ Components srl. “Our guaranteed service levels, together with this new product range mean that we are providing our clients with the best technical and commercial support available.”
