Analox Military Systems, based in Stokesley, North Yorkshire, works with Beijing Huaputai Science and Technology
A LIFESAVING firm providing global naval fleets with vital equipment will supply a powerful Asian military.
Analox Military Systems (AMS), in Stokesley, North Yorkshire, has signed a deal with China-based Beijing Huaputai Science and Technology (BHST).
Bosses say the distribution agreement will increase AMS sales across China, building on BHST's established position as a medical and military sector supplier.
The company has ordered a number of AMS' products in the past, and will now market an analysing system, which help crews when submarines are in distress, and is the only product of its type to meet Nato standards.
It will also distribute AMS' atmosphere monitor system, which measures oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, and pressures and temperatures.
The deal comes as AMS, which began trading above a shop 30 years ago, works on a contract to supply the Norwegian Navy with two pieces of carbon monoxide monitoring equipment for its six submarines.
It is already a trusted supplier to the British, US, Dutch and Canadian navies, and is adding five members of staff to the group's 46-strong workforce to maintain its growth.
Jo Burke, AMS account manager, said: “This is an exciting opportunity us because we have no established contacts in the Chinese military, so this agreement opens up a new marketplace for us.
“We have known BHST for a few years, and have built up a strong relationship. “With this partnership now formalised, we are confident that this will prove successful for both companies.”
YongChao Yu, BHST general manager, said AMS had a strong reputation, which the company was keen to use to its advantage.
He said: “Their products constantly receive excellent feedback, their staff are highly-skilled and professional, and the customer service and after-sales support are exemplary.
“Now we are formally an AMS agent in China, we are putting our efforts into substantially growing this area of our business.”
Last year, AMS supplied life-saving monitoring equipment for a major submarine rescue exercise.
It made emergency atmospheric monitors for submarine rescue vehicles, which measure levels of CO2 and oxygen, as well as air pressure and temperature, for Nato's Exercise Bold Monarch 11 operation.
The event saw 2,000 personnel and 20 countries convene off the southeastern coast of Spain to increase international co-operation in submarine rescues.
