Spee-Dee Packaging Machinery Forms Strategic Alliance with Selo UK Ltd

February 16, 2011
James P. Navin, president of Spee-Dee Packaging Machinery Inc., announced that an agreement has been formed with Selo UK Ltd to distribute and service Spee-Dee equipment throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.

“This partnership enables Spee-Dee to achieve the objective of expanding our customer base into Europe efficiently, cost-effectively, and within a condensed timeframe,” said Navin.

Timm Johnson, vice president, sales/marketing, explained that the European market has always presented significant opportunities for growth. However, as a company strongly committed to providing timely and professional service, Spee-Dee was challenged to locate a local resource that could provide the same level of exemplary support. “The experienced Selo UK engineering team will receive extensive training in the operation, maintenance, and repair of the entire Spee-Dee product line, enabling them to knowledgeably resolve application questions via telephone or through a service call,” Johnson stressed. “Selo guarantees on-site service within 24 hours of request and the company is committed to maintaining an extensive inventory of spare parts. This ensures customers will experience maximum system uptime when addressing existing or new production requirements.”

Selo UK Ltd is an international branch of Selo Group, a provider of food processing and packaging systems based in Oldenzaal, The Netherlands. Other countries served by Selo Group include Germany, Belgium, Denmark and France.
