Dazor Lighting Solutions extended its international reach recently, finalizing a distribution agreement and strategy with Josef Drastil, Managing Director of Prague-based DREXX, s.r.o. DREXX s.r.o. acquired distribution rights to Dazor’s entire product offering including task lighting and the speckFINDER HD for the countries of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and Hungary.
"Expanding international distribution into this territory is an important addition to Dazor's global growth strategy," said Stan Hogrebe, President and CEO of Dazor, explained that. "These growing eastern European countries are strategically located, have well-developed infrastructures, and skilled labor forces which attracts foreign direct investment by automakers, electronics manufacturers, and many others. There is high demand in this industrialized territory for U.S. products which are known for good quality and advanced technology, so our companies believe Dazor’s innovative line of digital computer microscopes (speckFINDER HD), high efficiency LED task fixtures, and core line of illuminated magnifiers will fill growing marketplace demand for inspection and quality control tools."
Josef Drastil founded DREXX, s.r.o. after a diverse background of operational and sales experience in quality equipment sales. Under his leadership, DREXX has seen strong growth for the past number of years in this territory. Mr. Drastil speaks Czech, Slovak, German, Russian, and English languages and is expanding his network of dealers in these countries.
