In 2005 the gas ignition systems division of Kigass Electronics, also based in the UK, was added. As well as spark electrodes, Kigass has over a number of years, developed and produced electronic spark generators together with other electronic gas sensing equipment. This operation was transferred to Thailand and merged with Derlite during 2006.
