FLONIDAN starts smart gas meter production in the UK
First delivery from the factory in Coventry has already been made.
As UK energy suppliers speed up the national smart meter roll out, the demand for high volumes of smart gas meters increases. To meet the growing demand FLONIDAN is expanding production to UK soil.
”The british gas utilities need smart gas meters now and although we expect to double the production capacity in our existing production setup, we still aren´t delivering as much as requested”, says COO Anders Hornshoej.
Earlier this year FLONIDAN opened their first UK-based office in Cambridge and now production follows.
"We are truly pleased to inform our british customers, that we have entered an agreement with George Wilson Industries (GWI) to produce additional meters at their UK manufacturing centre in Coventry", says Anders Hornsnhoej.
First shipment of G4 smart gas meters was made start June and Flonidan expects to reach a monthly capacity of + 40,000 smart gas meters out of the factory in Coventry already before year end.
GWI is owned by Apator Metrix and has many years of experience in production of diagphram gas meters and domestic pressure regulators. GWI meets the same high standards of quality, information security, environment and work environment as FLONIDAN and the british gas utilies will be getting the exact same quality product from Coventry as other FLONIDAN production facilities.
Due to the increasing demand for smart gas meters in UK FLONIDAN expects considerable growth in both sales and results for the financial year 2016/2017.
