WELCOME TO FORENSICS DETECTORS!

 OUR "real" STORY

The FORENSICS DETECTORS' story begins with our chief engineer, Dr. Koz. He began inventing electronic systems since the age of 10 and by the time he was a teenager he was building and selling power supplies to amateur radio operators at flea markets in Melbourne, Australia. 

At the age of 20, while studying electronic engineering, he was invited to become a technical member of the graduate Sensor Technology Laboratory at RMIT University spearheaded by Professor Wojtek Wlodarski.

During his tenure, Dr. Koz designed and developed smoke analyzers, infra-red gas and toxic gas sensors and interlock systems. He continued to invent many sensors and systems during his PhD studies as a senior member of the lab. He garnered the nickname “action man” by Professor Wlodarksi.  The next breakthrough was when Dr. Koz invented and patented the world's first vehicle carbon monoxide sensor system to prevent driver fatigue and suicides. He traveled around the world three times during his PhD studies presenting his inventions and ideas at international conferences and to private industry such as Siemens in Germany and to the Ford Motor Company in Michigan. He was also awarded various scholarships and awards for his novel work during his PhD period developing alcohol breathalyzers, combustion analyzers and ozone sensors that outperformed the world’s best sensors. 

During his graduate studies, on a conference trip in Greece, Dr. Koz met his future wife. They married and settled in Los Angeles, California where soon after he became an engineering professor with the renowned UCLA.  Whilst at UCLA, he developed and commercialized nanotechnology for sensing, communications and computing working closely with the US semiconductor and defense industries.

To much surprise, numerous law firms sought after Dr. Koz for his valuable expertise and began to engage him as an expert consultant on legal cases involving toxic gas detection. While working on various legal cases, he was astounded by the many missing products within the market that could prevent toxic gas exposure injuries.  So in 2017, the "action man" established FORENSICS DETECTORS to offer consumers affordable and innovative gas detectors, meters and analyzers.

Today, FORENSICS DETECTORS designs, develops, manufactures and sources products that meet Dr. Koz's strict technical requirements. The company operates from the lovely Palos Verdes Peninsula in Los Angeles, California where most of the company operations such as design, quality verification, calibration, warehousing and shipping is undertaken.

Dr. Koz loves spending time with his wife and his three children going to the beach and having a beer and BBQing. He is a black belt jiu jitsu practitioner and teaches at South Bay Jiu Jitsu in Hermosa Beach, California.
