Through this agreement, Strata Worldwide will now bring this innovative technology directly to mines in the States.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Trolex to offer this technology in the United States markets,” commented Mike Berube, President and Chief Operating Officer of Strata Products Worldwide. “It has been Strata’s vision to offer completely wireless, battery-powered and intrinsically safe atmospheric monitoring systems, which include the additional safety benefits of post-accident monitoring and data revival.”
