This question was answered on 23rd November 2020

We are concerned about the credible reports of human rights violations and abuses in Xinjiang and continue to raise these concerns with the Chinese authorities and Chinese companies as necessary. We also advise UK companies with business operations in Xinjiang to conduct appropriate due diligence to satisfy themselves that their activities do not support, or risk being seen to support, human rights violations or abuses.

Pyronix has stated publicly that neither its equipment nor technology were sold to China after October 2019.
