Flexicon (Europe) Ltd has opened an office in France to provide factory-direct sales and application engineering services to customers and surrounding regions, it was announced by Greg Slack, Vice President Global Sales, Flexicon Corporation.
The new location will be headed by Emmanuel Decoeur, Regional Sales Manager, who holds a degree in Engineering (BTS FEE) from Lycée Hippolyte Fontaine (Dijon) and has served in various technical engineering positions since 2001. He most recently served as Technical Sales Engineer for a major drinks company, managing the development, costing and installation of industrial process systems, and has trained on-site at Flexicon's European headquarters in Kent, England.
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 local Dijon staff will have full access to Flexicon's engineering resources derived from over 22 000 installations worldwide which, together with our lifetime performance guarantee, can take the risk out of purchasing bulk handling equipment and systems," noted Slack.
Headquartered in the USA, Flexicon has been producer of bulk handling equipment throughout Europe since 1974. The company established a European manufacturing and sales office in Kent, UK, in 1989, and in 2002, expanded capacity by 50% with the purchase of an adjacent facility. In 2012, the operation moved to a facility that consolidated and increased manufacturing and administrative space. Demand across Europe led to the opening of factory-direct sales offices in Barcelona, Spain in 2015, Aschaffenburg, Germany in 2016, and the new Dijon office. Other factory-direct sales offices are located in Chile, Singapore and Indonesia.
Flexicon manufactures equipment in the US, UK, Australia and South Africa including: flexible screw conveyors, tubular cable conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag unloaders, bulk bag fillers, drum/box/container tippers, manual dumping stations, weigh batching systems and engineered plant-wide systems integrated with the new or existing equipment or processes.
