Variosystems, Switzerland, Acquires Manufacturing and Distribution Rights for The Universal Walkway Tester.
Variosystems is a Switzerland-based electronics manufacturer serving such customers as Siemens, Daimler Benz, and Honeywell. The company employs over 500 people in their European, Asian and U.S. facilities.
This acquisition comes shortly after several recently released studies, including that by 3M Worldwide which demonstrated nearly identical results to the current industry standard James Machine. However, unlike the James Machine, the UWT is portable, therefore allowing for on-site or "real-world" testing of walkways making it an ideal auditing tool for property owners and insurers.
Variosystems has chosen to work with a partner company solely dedicated to servicing, distributing and supporting the Universal Walkway Tester in the United States. This newly created company has been established under the name "Universal Walkway Testing, LP" (UWTLP) and is based in Southlake (Dallas), Texas. UWTLP's General Manager, Larry Gallant, anticipates a Feb. 2005 launch of the American made UWT.
"Variosystems" is a world-class engineering and manufacturing organization which has earned an international reputation for manufacturing products to world class standards. The UWT is a unique testing instrument that they believe will be playing a major role in the insurance and legal industries to which slip-and-fall lawsuits continue to be a problem.
