Announcing the development, Keith Bourton, managing director, said: “The Barcelona location, coupled with our new Spanish language website, will fuel Flexicon’s rapid growth in the region by providing a dedicated Spanish-language staff with full access to corporate resources.”
The Barcelona office is headed by regional sales manager Víctor Zamora Góme, who holds a degree in electronic engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, and previously served as project manager for a bulk solids consultancy, where he managed mechanical and electrical aspects of small to large bulk handling projects.
At Flexicon, Góme 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 Barcelona office will have full access to Flexicon’s engineering resources, including details on more than 20,000 installations of Flexicon bulk handling equipment worldwide,” noted Bourton.
UK-based Flexicon (Europe) Ltd is a fully owned subsidiary of Flexicon Corporation of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA. The parent company also owns and operates manufacturing facilities in Brisbane, Australia and Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and maintains factory-direct sales offices in Santiago, Chile and Singapore.
