HIMA and Hima-Sella extend successful partnership to 2013

Stockport-based systems integration specialist Hima-Sella has renewed its partnership with Germany’s leading independent designer of automated safety solutions, HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH + Co KG, for a further three years up to summer 2013.

First appointed exclusive UK & Ireland agent for HIMA’s range of safety systems in 1983, Hima-Sella has always enjoyed a close working relationship with HIMA, the European market leader in safety-related process automation and ranked among the top three worldwide.

Since the management buyout of Hima-Sella in 2007 by Ian Wright, Eddy Turnock and John Blackwell, the relationship between the two firms has flourished.

Using HIMA’s intelligent and innovative control technology Hima-Sella delivers flexible solutions, in programmable and non-programmable formats, providing protection up to SIL3, to its UK process industry customers. Complementing the HIMA range of HIQuad, HIMatrix® and Planar 4 controllers, Hima-Sella launched HIMax® in the UK in 2008 and in September 2009 successfully installed the first HIMax® programmable electronic system in the UK for a major refinery.

Hima-Sella’s managing director Ian Wright comments, “We’re delighted to have renewed our partnership with HIMA. We both value integrity and expertise and share an uncompromising focus on personnel and plant safety. Growing our business in the UK depends on us having the industry’s proven, most reliable safety systems, backed by the quality of support that HIMA offers all its international partners. With two new offices opening in the East Midlands and in Scotland this summer Hima-Sella is in a very strong position to move forward as planned.”

Steffen Philipp, Managing Partner at HIMA comments,” We’re happy to renew our partnership until 2013. With the opening of two new offices, we’re looking forward to supporting Hima-Sella and realising the opportunities for growth in the UK.
