Martyn Hanks has joined Hochiki Europe to lead sales across Africa. Driven by the economic growth especially in Rwanda, Tanzania and Mozambique, the Hochiki Europe expansion recognises the increasing importance of the market to the fire and safety systems industry.

Bolstered by this appointment, Hochiki Europe has also created an online portal specifically for the African market to ensure local protocols, standards and experience can be accessed quickly for customers.

Graham Lowe, sales director Hochiki Europe, said: “With growing importance being placed on life safety systems across many countries in Africa and the reliance on Europe and America to support with initial standards, Hochiki Europe saw to bolster its 20-year commitment to the continent.

“Hanks has extensive experience working in the sub-Saharan region and will be perfectly placed to support the requirements of the market as it continues to develop.”

He has already formed good working relationships with Hochiki’s existing customers in Africa, helping to secure contracts on a number of refurbishments and new builds in the region.
