Larox says that the new Moscow-based subsidiary will allow it a local presence to develop the new filter sales and the after-sales markets in Russia.
Larox has been active in Russia for some time, with customers in the mining, metallurgy and chemical process industries. “We have been supplying filters, filtration solutions and after-sales services to Russian customers for decades,” explained Mr. Topi Karppanen, president and chief executive officer of Larox Corporation. “Russia is a very important market for us, and we believe there is great potential for Larox's products and services. Demand for efficient solid-liquid separation solutions is continuously growing as process industry companies look for ways to reduce their operating costs and environmental impact. Larox's strategy is to grow globally by developing a local presence and offering local customer services.”
