Specialist supplier of explosion protected connectors, cable glands and enclosures, Hawke International, is expanding its operations in the Asia Pacific region. A subsidiary of US based Hubbell Corporation, Hawke are joining with other group companies to provide a unified service for all Hubbell hazardous area products. Contractors in oil and gas exploration, production and processing in the region will benefit from a single point of contact with expertise over the whole product range.

The new Hubbell Electrical Products (HEP) operation is based in new premises in Singapore and is headed by Hawke's former UK marketing manager Mike Connelly. Mike leads a specialist team of 16 who will handle cable glands and other products from Hawke; industrial lighting from Chalmit and conduit connectors, hubs and device boxes from Killark. The new premises will also provide space for Hubbell Lighting and Hubbell Power Systems.

Hawke managing director, James Phillips commented, "Over the last five years Hawke has experienced a three-fold increase in business from the Asia Pacific region. We are sure that there is further potential. By combining forces with other Hubbell group companies we hope to leverage the strengths of the individual brands and provide customers with a more complete service."

Hawke products have been tested and certified by test houses throughout the world. The new Singapore operation will provide a local assembly operation, taking components from the UK, this will give a speedier service for the Asia Pacific market allowing equipment to be marked with relevant local approval stamps.
