Gareth Rowlands is the new president of KNX UK, the association representing UK manufacturers, integrators and training establishments associated with KNX technology.
The KNX standard is a system for building and home control and automation which is fully compliant to EN 50090, the European standard for building and home electronic systems.
Rowlands works for ABB and has been involved with KNX for over five years. He says he is enthusiastic about the opportunities the technology brings to the UK electrical market - especially in the field of assisted technology and its benefits to people with disabilities.
'My colleagues and I will be working hard towards giving KNX an improved positioning in the UK building industry. Although KNX is still in the early adoption phase in the UK, all the key signs are positive for the future.'
Two further board members Colin Price of Ivory Egg and Eric Anderson of Siemens have also been elected to KNX UK.
