Kentec appoints business development manager to support Ekho Wireless sales

26 April 2021

KENTEC ELECTRONICS, the manufacturer of life-critical control systems, has employed Johnny Martin to develop new business for the company’s recently-launched Ekho wireless fire detection systems.

In this newly-created role, Martin will educate and support Kentec Installation Partner (KIP) customers about the company’s stable of wireless fire alarm systems.

Sammy Steel, herself recently appointed as head of UK sales for Kentec, believes that Martin’s 25-year career in the fire industry – with the last 15 of them spent specialising in wireless solutions – makes him the perfect fit for this business development role.

“I’m so very pleased that Johnny has joined our team of experienced fire business development managers,” enthused Steel. “He brings with him a wealth of knowledge from the detector side and, in particular, the wireless systems side of fire protection which compliments the team very well.”

Speaking about his new role, Martin told Fire Safety Matters: “I’m very excited to be at Kentec. It’s a company I’ve admired for a long time. I’m particularly happy to be able to work with such an incredible product as Ekho which, in my opinion, is the best wireless system on the market today. I’ll be very happy to chat with anyone who’s looking at specifying wireless fire detection and offer them a demonstration of the Ekho solution.”

Ekho is a range of wireless devices backed by approvals from both the Loss Prevention Certification Board and the Radio Equipment Directive that work with both Kentec’s Taktis fire detection solution and the Syncro AS fire detection panel.
