Gill Sensors & Controls Expands in North America
Gill Sensors & Controls Ltd. has expanded its non-contacting position sensor product line into North America and appointed a North American business development manager.
Lizzie Phillips, director of Gill Sensors & Controls, said: “Gill has had a long presence in the U.S. market with engine control systems through our Missouri office, and we will be maintaining that office and staff to support our OEM, aftermarket, and distribution customers. In parallel, we have expanded our position sensors product line, having created several custom-engineered sensing solutions for U.S. based OEMs. This restructuring puts in place similar sales, distribution and engineering support for U.S. customers requiring either standard or custom sensing solutions.”
As a part of the sensor market expansion, Gill has appointed Paul Cain as North American business development manager. He maintains a sales and technical support office in Orange County, Calif., and is available for technical support, quoting, and supporting product requirements.
Prior to joining Gill, Cain served as North American general manager for PIHER / Meggitt, a Spanish sensor manufacturer. Previous positions in the industry include director of sales and marketing at BEI Duncan Electronics/BEI Kimco Magnetics and 13 years with TRW, where he worked in automotive electronics with air bag crash sensors and as director of operations for TRW Steering and Suspension in Sydney, Australia.
