Zircon Corporation, manufacturer of the original StudSensor stud finder, has announced the launch of its new affiliate, Zircon Corporation Ltd, a UK Corporation.
The company has been engaged in the UK for over a decade and has an established customer base in the tool, hardware and home improvement sectors. The creation of Zircon Corporation Ltd reinforces Zircon’s goal to increase its footprint in the UK and, through this expansion, enables customers to work directly with the company’s local affiliate.
“After years of growth, both with our business partners and with direct sales, now is the time to have an organisation in place for an active local presence and leverage our global position in the category,” stated Ennis Pipe, Zircon’s EVP of Global Sales and Marketing. “We are fortunate to have Andy Vaughan managing the new operation.”
Andy Vaughan, Head of Zircon’s European Sales Division, brings more than 25 years of experience in managing sales organisations. Vaughan and his sales team will be based in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire. To expedite order fulfillment and logistics, the Corporation is partnering with ProLog based in Annesley, Nottinghamshire.
“The UK is a fast-growing and dynamic region within the DIY and contractor trade marketplace. Zircon Corporation Ltd is committed to expanding international availability of Zircon products and providing UK customers with the correct products to complete their projects, whether DIY or Professional in nature,” said Andy Vaughan. “Through our ProLog logistics partnership, Zircon Corporation Ltd can quickly fill both our retail customer and on-line orders with next day turnaround times while also optimising the product mix for each specific retail location.”
An international company, Zircon was established in 1975 in the heart of the Silicon Valley.
The company designs, develops, and manufactures electronic stud finders, metal detectors, and electrical scanners for professional contractors and home improvement enthusiasts worldwide.
