Smith Flow Control (SFC) signed a new distributor agreement with Econosto to provide technical and commercial support locally in the UAE, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia (KSA) and Egypt.
Mike Fynes, SFC’s sales and marketing director, comments, “Following our recent sales tour to the Gulf Region, we are thrilled to partner with Econosto. The company has vital in-depth knowledge of markets across the Gulf and a vast number of established relationships with EPCs, contractors and end users, which will only help to enhance and support our plans for 2014.”
Econosto has grown from strength to strength in the Middle East since its first efforts in 1983. The company’s headquarters are in Dubai and has regional offices and partners across most of the Gulf countries. Plans are already in place for SFC to undertake regular sales tours in the Middle East, in conjunction with Econosto, showcasing the full range of interlocks and valve management systems, most notably the EasiDrive portable valve actuator, an alternative to permanent dedicated valve actuators.
Fynes adds, “The proposed sales tours will only help to strengthen and further enhance the relationship with Econosto and we are looking forward to seeing the relationship evolve.”
