Signal transmission systems company Belden has selected Ellisco as a local distributor for its Hirschmann industrial applications and Ethernet offerings.
Ellisco is an Auckland based specialised supplier of electrical and mechanical engineering equipment.
It joins two other local distributors including Maser who look after Belden cable and Soanar who distirbute Hirschmann connectors.
Belden's ANZ regional manager Adam Callender says New Zealand is an important market and it selected Ellisco due to its technical expertise.
“We wanted to partner with a company that has the technical background to support products such as switches, firewalls and WiFi. Ellisco is also a dedicated distributor with national coverage, which was an important prerequisite in their selection,” he says.
Ellisco national sales manager Douglas Oliver says it will offer support to customers and sell Hirschamnn with similar products from vendors including Cavotec and Pilz.
