I am sure that with the innovative products of Plessey and our deep knowledge of the market we are going to be very successful.”
David Owen, Plessey’s Regional Sales Director, added, “We are very pleased to work with a distributor that entered the lighting market some years ago and therefore has considerable knowledge of the local customer base and what is required to be successful.
