OEM Automatic now supplying AGRO cable glands

OEM Automatic is announcing a partnership agreement with the Swiss company, AGRO AG. This partnership opens up a new area of business for OEM, enabling the company to represent the wide range of AGRO cable glands in the UK.

Christian Hochstrasser, Export Manager for AGRO AG says: "AGRO has chosen OEM Automatic because the company has an extensive product portfolio which fits perfectly with our cable glands. OEM also benefits from a professional sales network covering the whole of the UK's industrial automation sector and we are convinced that mutual co-operation will be beneficial for both companies."

Founded in 1953 in Switzerland, AGRO boasts more than 60 years of technical expertise. In 1955 the company achieved the first ever patent for a cable gland product and is now a market leader in cable gland manufacture supplying the renewable energy market, shipyards, oil refineries and food processing industries.
