Horsham, England, UK – March 31, 2015: DeTect, Inc. (www.detect-inc.com)
celebrates the third anniversary of opening of its European Division Office to meet growing demand for its radar products in the United Kingdom (UK), European Union (EU), and the Middle East. The DeTect Global Ltd. office is located in Horsham, West Sussex near London-Gatwick Airport.
“Over the past five years, DeTect has experienced a significant increase in its overseas business, particularly for projects in western Europe, Asia and Africa and this new office allows us to maintain the high level of customer support and response that has been a hallmark of DeTect’s success”, said Gary W. Andrews, DeTect’s CEO. In 2014, the Company saw its sales increase by over 20% driven primarily by international orders. “Export orders have continued to increase despite the global recession”, said Mr. Andrews, adding, “while other American businesses have cut back, we elected to push forward, increase internal investment and subsequently have gained market share that will position us for even more growth as the economy rebounds at home and abroad.”
Four staff members have been transferred to the DeTect Global office which is headed by Edward ‘Zak’ Zakrajsek, a founding member of DeTect.
