In the latest of a string of export deals for the North Yorkshire sensor and analyser firm, Total Lab Systems will be supplying clients with gas monitoring equipment to ensure sound health and safety practices in their workplaces.

Total Lab Systems Ltd has been established in the country for more than 20 years, building strong relationships within the scientific industry and supplying high-quality products for use in research, clinical and industrial applications.

The company will be supplying Analox’s Technology’s range of equipment designed for gas-monitoring in laboratories, including the Ax50 carbon dioxide alarm and the O2NE oxygen depletion monitor.

Mark Lewis, managing director of Analox Sensor Technology, said: “Total Lab Systems has similar business values to ours, focusing its efforts on supplying the most appropriate solutions to issues faced by its clients.

“It prides itself on its efficiency, and exceptional service, as do we at Analox.

“This makes it a great pairing and we’re very pleased to have the distribution deal in place with them.”

The agreement represents the latest in a series of export successes for the Stokesley-based company, with deals also being drawn up for India and Ireland in recent weeks, meaning the 32-year-old company’s products can now be found almost everywhere in the world.

The firm’s other division, Analox Military Systems (AMS), is also continuing to thrive, after securing a six-figure contract to supply the Norweigian Navy with two carbon monoxide monitoring systems for ULA-class submarines.

The next two months will likewise create further opportunities for expansion as AMS launches two new products at the DSEI and Pacific exhibitions.

Analox, which currently employs 47 people, last year reported turnover of �4.8, slightly down from 2011.

However, management are confident the remainder of 2013 will see further improvements in the company’s fortunes.

Julia Greeks, marketing manager for Total Lab Systems, said: “Working with Analox Sensor Technology is really exciting for us and our clients.

“We are now able to supply our clients with high-calibre gas-monitoring equipment to ensure health and safety in their work places.

“This is an exceptionally valuable addition to the range of products we supply.”
