Wimesure has agreed to work with the retiring distributor IC Mesures for a transition period of at least six months. Jacques Maye (IC Mesures) will be working as a consultant with Wimesure, having distributed Penny + Giles products in France since 1995.

Commenting for Wimesure, which has a network of 12 regional distributors throughout France, managing director Christophe Bracon says: “As a technical distributor we are keen to expand our portfolio and Penny + Giles was identified as offering a broad range of high quality products that complement our existing range.

“We received full product training from Penny + Giles on its range of joystick controllers, solenoids and sensors, which has equipped us to offer specification and application advice to OEM’s.”

Welcoming Wimesure to its distributor network, a spokesperson for Penny + Giles says they are delighted with the company’s industry experience, knowledge and enthusiasm and look forward to a long and successful relationship.

Wimesure exhibited at the MesurexpoVison 2011 trade show in October, where they used the stand to promote the Penny + Giles range of joystick controllers, solenoids and sensors.
