TR sets up UK operation

German shaft encoder and digital measurement system manufacturer TR Electronic has opened a subsiary in the UK – TR Controls – located in Great Dunmow, Essex.

The company will be headed by Alan Goodworth, formerly sales manager with Hengstler Industries, and with a background of many years experience dealing with encoder products. He comments: `Now is an opportune time for TR to open up in the UK. The market is developing towards more advanced high specification devices to meet the needs of increasing sophistication in automated manufacturing.’

TR has built a world wide reputation on its high quality shaft encoders, with particular emphasis on absolute and fully programmable models. The company is also heavily engaged in encoder systems linked by fieldbus to its range of industrial PCs and PLCs, and can supply all the components needed for a complete system.

TR Electronic was formerly represented in the UK by Sensor Consultants, who will now act as a major distributor for the new UK company.
