Oxalis acquires hazardous equipment company

The Oxalis Group has acquired specialist hazardous and industrial equipment supplier EMC Ex.

Through this acquisition, the Oxalis Group intends to achieve two objectives.

First, it intends to expand the group’s Electrical Division to include expertise in customising and assembling Ex d and Ex e control and installation systems for use in hazardous areas. 

Second, the acquisition will bring specialist sales and technical expertise in the aviation industry to further develop the Oxalis portable and flexible lighting ranges for aircraft manufacturers, airlines and maintenance operations. 

The Oxalis Type 200 portable, compact, fluorescent range is already being used by Airbus in Toulouse and Oxalis Lineglow flexible LED lighting systems are now being used by Airbus UK.
