Polymer bushings and wear material producer Vesconite will be visiting Italian pump manufacturers in early June to introduce the companies to Vesconite’s bushings and wear rings that are used globally to increase the operating life of vertical turbine, canister and sump pumps.
Vesconite intends to visit eight companies in one week, and will travel from the south to the north of the country to establish relationships with pump companies, offer prototype testing and answer technical queries.
“Italy is an important location for pump and valve businesses,” reports Phillip de Villiers, who is championing sales to the pump industry in Europe.
Vesconite is committed to expanding its presence in Europe and sees the outward-focused Mediterranean country as an important one in which to establish itself.
Vesconite has translated its pumps manual and its industrial design manual into Italian in preparation for the trip.
