Kentec Electronics, a leading manufacturer of life-critical control systems, has employed Johnny Martin to develop new business for Kentec’s new Ekho wireless fire detection systems.

In this newly created role Johnny will educate and support Kentec Installation Partner (KIP) customers about Kentec’s newly added stable of wireless fire alarm systems. Sammy Steel, newly appointed Head of UK Sales, Kentec Electronics says Johnny’s 25-year career in the fire industry with the last 15 years specialising in wireless makes him the perfect fit for this job: 

“I am so very pleased to have Johnny join our team of experienced fire business development managers.” She says. “Johnny brings with him a wealth of knowledge from the detector, and in particular wireless systems side, which compliments the team very well.”

Johnny says he cannot wait to get back out on the road and hopefully it will not be too long: “I am very excited to be at Kentec, a company I have admired for a long time and particularly happy to be able to work with such an incredible product like Ekho, which in my opinion, with its self-healing mesh technology and incredible battery life is the best wireless system on the market today.”  Johnny further adds: “I am very happy to come and see anyone who is looking at wireless fire detection and give them a demonstration on Ekho.”

Ekho is a range of wireless devices, which is backed by approvals from both LPCB and RED (Radio Equipment Directive), that work with both Kentec’s award winning Taktis fire detection and world-renowned Syncro AS fire detection panel. For more on Ekho see
