Lyon Equipment new distributor in United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland

As of the end of January 2013, Lyon Equipment in the U.K. has taken over distributorship of the brands Katadyn, Optimus and Trek’n Eat in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Lyon Equipment is the leading distributor in the U.K. and Ireland of high-quality equipment for mountaineering, caving and outdoor sports. The company has also specialised in safety equipment for work and rescue in difficult conditions as well as in manufacturing of gear for work at heights since it was founded in 1973. Lyon Equipment is known for its speciality ladders for cave exploration. Quality, safety and protection of the environment are for Lyon Equipment a priority in its choice of retail brands. Now, the brands distributed by the U.K. company includes the products of the Katadyn Group that also follow that principle.

“Katadyn and Optimus are arguably two of the outdoor world’s best-known brands, so this is a very exciting partnership”, says Frank Bennett, Lyon Equipment Sales and Marketing Director. “Katadyn is the world’s No. 1 in water purification products; Optimus has been making top-quality stoves for over 110 years; and Trek’n Eat is Europe’s No. 1 freeze-dried expedition and outdoor food brand. Widening our product offering to include the brands of the Katadyn Group is for us and our retailers a huge opportunity. All products of the Katadyn Group can be ordered through Lyon Equipment as of 31st January”.

2012 was another excellent year for Lyon Equipment. The company invested 4 million Euro in a new, state-of-the-art facility it moved into last October. Lyon looks to further strengthen its market portfolio with distribution of the brands Katadyn, Optimus and Trek’n Eat.

“We are convinced we have found a partner in Lyon Equipment that can optimally distribute our brands Katadyn, Optimus and Trek’n Eat in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland”, says Trix Ammann, CEO of Katadyn Products, Inc.
