Engineering company Statiflo has expanded its presence in Western Europe with the appointment of new business partners in three countries.

Statiflo has recruited partners in Germany, Italy and the Netherlands to its growing network.

In Germany, Statiflo has appointed BM Technics to cover the west and south-west of the country and Schoeler Engineering to cover the eastern region.

BM Technics is based in Schermbeck in North Rhine Westphalia and also has an office in Weinheim. Schoeler Engineering is based in Blankenhain in the state of Thuringia.

Both are owner-managed businesses with extensive experience of supplying process equipment to a range of industries.

In Italy, Statiflo has recruited Fortek, which is based in Turin. Founded in 1979, Fortek is a growing family-owned company which supplies products to sectors including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, process, food and beverage and cosmetics.

Koster Industrial Services is Statiflo’s new business partner in the Netherlands. The business is based in Kerkrade in the south of the country. The company has 25 years’ experience of supplying large process plants in sectors such as chemicals and food and beverage.

Statiflo, which has its headquarters in Macclesfield, Cheshire, and subsidiaries in Germany and the US, is a world leader in the design and distribution of static mixers and other process equipment.

Its business partners distribute the company’s products and provide advice and support to customers in key markets across a range of industries.

Axel Schmidt, European sales manager at Statiflo, said: “We are thrilled to announce the appointment of new business partners in three key European markets.

“BM Technics and Schoeler Engineering will enable us to increase our market presence in Germany, especially in the process and municipal wastewater sectors.

“Fortek has great expertise and knowhow and will be an ideal partner for Statiflo. Our products are well-suited to the existing wide range of process equipment from well-known brands distributed by Fortek in the Italian market.

“Koster has a very good reputation in the process industry in the Netherlands. It will serve all industries in the domestic market, with particular potential to help us grow our market share in the municipal water and wastewater treatment sector.

“All of our new business partners have an excellent understanding of their local markets and customers, which this is even more important at this time, when travel is so difficult.

“We are confident they will be extremely successful in their relevant markets as we continue to expand our business in Europe.”
