Finland-based switch manufacturer, Katko, and US-based electrical safety products manufacturers, Grace Engineered Products, have appointed APS Industrial as their national distribution partner in Australia.
The agreement with Katko, that came into effect on July 1, further strengthens APS Industrial’s ability to fully service Australian industry with the broadest portfolio of industrial low and medium voltage electrical and automation products.
Based in Finland and with manufacturing facilities both there and in Poland, Katko is sold in over 70 countries around the world and has around 80 years of experience in designing and manufacturing load break switches, isolators and switch fuses.
“Katko is a world leader in innovation committed to designing products and solutions tailored to a range of industry needs, and these are values that very much align with APS Industrial”, said David Hegarty, managing director of APS Industrial.
“Using these synergies as the foundation of our partnership, we are very excited by what we will together be able to provide Australian industry through this market leading range of switches and switching solutions”, Hegarty said.

APS Industrial has also signed a national distribution agreement with Grace Engineered Products in Australia. Based in Iowa, USA, Grace Engineered Products is a leader in electrical safety product solutions that increase productivity and endeavour to exceed electrical workplace safety standards.
As part of this national distribution agreement, APS Industrial will bring to market a complete range of Permanent Electrical Safety Devices (PESDs) led by the GracePESDs® range of voltage indicators and the GracePort® range of communication ports.
“The Grace Engineered distribution agreement forms a very nice addition to our growing product portfolio and will particularly appeal to switchboard and control panel builders. These quality voltage indicators, test points and combination PESDs promote a safe work environment and save lives,” Hegarty said.
“In addition to local stockholdings we can also draw on the required technical expertise to support these ranges – it’s another exciting outcome that is designed to better serve local customers with highest levels of customer service and delivery”, he said.
