Solex Thermal Science, a global leader in thermal and bulk material engineering solutions, announces a significant investment that will expand its brand globally.

The Canadian-headquartered company recently finalized agreements with representatives in Asia-Pacific, Australia, and North and South America that will bring its proprietary heat exchange solutions to several emerging markets.

"As we continue to expand our solutions into new regions and new applications, it’s vital that we also look at our presence globally to make sure customers have ready access to the resources they need to be successful,” said Solex Thermal Science chief executive officer Lowy Gunnewiek

"Our boots-on-the-ground expertise has always represented an essential part of our customer-centric DNA. It is what helps set us apart. From concept to completion, we are focused on guaranteeing the kind of results and service that can only come from being engaged in your success.”

The recent investment expands Solex’s existing global network of 22 additional representatives that are currently located across Africa, Europe, FSU, Asia-Pacific, and North and South America.

"The decades-long relationships that we have with many of our representatives shows our ongoing commitment to providing customers with best-in-class service and technical support,” said Gunnewiek.

Solex Thermal Science is a global market leader and developer of high-efficiency, indirect heat exchange technology for the heating, cooling, and drying of free-flowing granular materials such as solid granules, pellets, beans, seeds, and particles.
