Flexicon (Europe) Ltd has opened a new office in Barcelona, Spain to provide factory-direct engineering services and technical sales support to customers throughout Spain.
“The Barcelona location, coupled with our new Spanish language website, will fuel Flexicon's rapid growth in the region by providing a dedicated Spanish-language staff with full access to corporate resources," explains Keith Bourton, managing director.
The Barcelona office is headed by Víctor Zamora Gómez, regional sales manager. He holds a degree in Electronic Engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, and previously served as project manager for a bulk solids consultancy where he managed mechanical and electrical aspects of small to large bulk handling projects.
At Flexicon, he will be responsible for building relationships with plant managers, engineers and other decision-makers in facilities that handle bulk solid materials across the food, pharmaceutical, mineral, and general chemical industries.
"The Barcelona office will have full access to Flexicon's engineering resources, including details on more than 20,000 installations of Flexicon bulk handling equipment worldwide," said Bourton.
Flexicon is a world leader in bulk handling equipment including: mechanical conveyors; pneumatic conveying systems; bulk bag filling, unloading, and conditioning machinery; box, drum, and container dumpers; manual dumping stations; weigh batching systems; and automated plant-wide bulk handling systems integrated with new or existing process equipment.
Flexicon (Europe) Ltd is located in Kent, England, and is a fully owned subsidiary of Flexicon Corp. of Bethlehem, PA. In addition to the Kent manufacturing location, Flexicon Corp. owns and operates manufacturing facilities in Brisbane, Australia, and Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and maintains factory-direct sales offices in Santiago, Chile, and Singapore.
