Partnership between EPE and RedWave brings the world’s fastest-growing FTIR-based chemical threat identifier to Australia and New Zealand

After a year of unprecedented demand for RedWave Technology’s chemical threat detection products in the US, RedWave has appointed EPE as their exclusive distributor in Australia and New Zealand.  The partnership is part of RedWave’s rapid expansion into the international market outside of the US.

RedWave selected EPE for its expertise in chemical threat detection, known in the Australian and New Zealand markets for the technical support they provide, integrity, and proven commitment to protecting the first responder community.

ThreatID HAZMAT ID Portable Gas, Chemical, Narcotics and Explosives Identifier - EPE. Trusted to Protect

Jon Frattaroli, CEO of Redwave Technology commented, “We have seen incredible demand in the US for our ThreatID chemical identifier as it is the only analyser that is capable of identifying thousands of gas, powder, and liquid threats all in one device.”  Frattaroli continued, “Its ability to identify 5,500 gases and vapours and over 22,000 powders and liquids represents a leap forward in protecting our first responders from chemicals, narcotics, and explosives.”

‘EPE is confident that the ThreatID will provide a much-needed capability enhancement in the field-based identification of gas compounds for our first responder community in Australia and New Zealand’, commented Dave Byrne, EPE’s specialist CBRNe Capability Manager.
