SPX Flow appoints new Food & Beverage channel partner in Egypt

SPX Flow has named Petroconsult as a new channel partner for its Food & Beverage and hygienic applications business in Egypt.

Cairo-headquartered Petroconsult already supports the SPX Flow ClydeUnion Pumps, Bran+Luebbe and Johnson Pump brands across the oil, gas and petrochemical sector in the region.

Now this new agreement, a new Petroconsult subsidiary will provide additional support for Anhydro, APV, Gerstenberg Schröder, Seital Separation and Waukesha Cherry-Burrell brands.

“This new partnership will offer tremendous benefits to our customers in the dairy, food & beverage and other hygienic processing industries in the region with enhanced local support and rapid spares deliveries,” said Tom Cork, channel manager at SPX Flow. “Petroconsult has a strong presence in Egypt, with multiple warehouse facilities. It will hold local stock of many common parts and components as well as acting as a distributor for APV, Seital Separation and WCB product lines.”

Petroconsult’s warehouse facilities are located in Alexandria’s free trade zone, enabling the company to serve a wider region, including Jordan and Libya, without additional import/export duties.

Hazem Elleithy, CEO at Petroconsult, said: “This is an exciting diversification for our business. We already have a long and successful relationship with SPX Flow for its process pumps and have the logistical network in place to serve the sanitary business sectors with the additional product ranges. Alongside rapid delivery of products and components, we will be developing a service network into 2020 to support SPX Flow customers across Egypt.”

The new Petroconsult partnership with SPX Flow will operate alongside existing sales agents in the Middle East, notably CT Group of Egypt.
