Avire’s brands bring with them successful histories in various territories across the globe. In 2012 Memco, TL Jones and E-Motive were brought together, with Janus joining shortly after. In 2013 the company became Avire.
In 2017 Microkey was acquired by Halma plc as a valuable addition to the Avire portfolio. With this acquisition has come a product range which Avire is bringing to new markets (DCP and accessories) and a wealth of knowledge regarding M2M technology and GSM/GPRS product which brings exciting prospects to our product roadmap.
AVIRE is part of Halma plc, a global group of companies providing life-saving technology.
Celebrating 50 years of Memco!
Memco is synonymous with trust, reliability and exceptional quality. Renowned amongst lift companies for light curtains such as Panachrome and Pana40+ and emergency telephones such as Memcom+ and the Digital Communication Platform (DCP). Memco has a history of creating products that meet and exceed industry standards and provide reliable and trusted technology to customers.
Memco brought Panachrome and its patented technology to the marketplace but it was initially a medical equipment company! The original founder moved away from the medical industry and into developing elevator light curtains where he saw an opportunity in the market.
