Lukanov, who graduated from Sofia University and the Hamburg Business School is fluent in both German and Russian. He has considerable experience in fire detection, extinguishing and emergency lighting, having worked for some well-known companies in Germany and Bulgaria. On his appointment Lukanov said: “I’m excited to be developing more business for Hochiki in what can be fairly difficult markets, but I’m hoping that my experience will be evident very quickly”.
Another addition to the team, and to further enhance commitment to its FIREscape emergency lighting offering, Hochiki Europe has announced the appointment of Ian Watts as Emergency Lighting Manager. He has many years’ experience in both the emergency lighting and fire detection sectors.

Commenting on both appointments, Graham Lowe, sales director of Hochiki Europe said: “These two senior appointments are a key indication that our business is expanding. Europe is a very important region for us and since we added our award winning FIREscape product to our portfolio back in 2010, it has opened new markets for us.”
