Finland-based Flowrox has strengthened its operations in Central Europe by opening a new subsidiary, Flowrox GmbH, in Ratingen, Düsseldorf, Germany.
Jukka Koskela, President & CEO of Flowrox, said the new subsidiary was of strategic importance to the flow control, process automation, environmental and solid-liquid separation technology specialist.
“For years we have been operating in Central Europe through representatives,” Koskela said. “Our offering has recently expanded, and we also provide complete industrial solutions. That is why we feel it is crucial to be close to customers in this major market. By setting up a local operation in Central Europe, we can better support our customers and representatives with local projects, sales and services.”
Dirk Otto has joined Flowrox as Managing and Sales Director, Central Europe. Otto has a strong background in process technology and solid-liquid separation, according to Flowox. Before joining Flowrox, Otto worked with leading companies in the field such as Larox, Clear Edge Filtration and Ipsen International.
With the opening of this new branch, Flowrox now has 10 subsidiaries located in Australia, Chile, China, Finland, Germany, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Sweden and the US, as well as more than 230 sales representatives in over 80 countries.
