Burkert appoints Fluid Controls as its South East of England distributor
31 August 2010
Burkert is strengthening its position in key markets, such as pharmaceutical, oil and gas, food and beverage and semiconductors, with the appointment of Fluid Controls, a specialist in these sectors, as its distributor for the South East of England.
Fluid Controls was founded in 1988 as a distributor of high quality pressure control equipment to the oil and gas industries. Since then the company has grown considerably, establishing itself as one of the UK's leading distributors for pressure control equipment, and as a preferred supplier to many leading manufacturers and blue chip companies.
The new distribution partnership with Burkert corresponds with the move by Fluid Controls into newer and larger premises, which give the company greater facilities to expand its activities. “We were actively seeking new opportunities to match our larger capabilities, when we came into contact with Burkert,” says Richard King, managing director of Fluid Controls.
"Burkert’s reputation goes before it as an industry-leader in process markets, as well as a highly respected worldwide brand. What we found was that our operations were a perfect strategic fit with those of Burkert, and that their plans and new product introductions were firmly aimed at the markets we are already serving or are seeking to penetrate.
“In our distribution partnership with Burkert we will be focussing on high purity markets where hygiene is essential. Burkert is a leader in these market segments and has recently consolidated its position with a number of new products, amongst them the ELEMENT range, which sets a higher benchmark in process measurement and control.
“To support our sales activity, and to ensure that our customers receive fast efficient service, we will also be holding a substantial stock of Burkert products. Our commitment in this area can be judged from the fact that we already hold £400,000 worth of stock to support our existing market-leading brands.”
