We are delighted to announce that we will be working with Aquamec, our agent in Brazil, to assemble, distribute and support Selwood pumps in South America.
We have jointly set up a logistics, maintenance and assembly centre in Brazil, aimed to centralise the distribution of Selwood pumps in Latin America.
The pumps will be packaged at the Aquamec plant in Brazil, located in the city of Itu, near São Paulo. This 12,000 m² site will be used for storing parts and to keep a stock of equipment ready to be shipped, both for sales and rental, to end users and distributors alike.
This strategic move will bring logistical advantages for both Selwood and Aquamec, adding readiness to a line of business that has grown for both companies in the past years.
Mark Page, Managing Director of Pump Sales, said: “We are very pleased to further our partnership with Aquamec and look forward to this successful business venture. Aquamec’s knowledge of the South American market is second to none and we are excited to give our customers added value and an enhanced service.”
Marco Formicola, Aquamec’s Executive Director, adds: “We believe that this move will bring new business opportunities for both Selwood and Aquamec, especially in the rental markets, where the local contents added to Selwood’s packages will greatly improve on the cost-effectiveness of our products, bringing readiness to the supply chain, as we no longer will depend on importation for some important parts of our pump sets”.
Selwood manufactured pumps, synonymous with quality, longevity and reliability, are operating across the world in some of the most challenging environments and demanding of projects. Our range includes the world leading Seltorque brand for handling solids, our own automatic self-priming Selprime system and our Spate products for the environmental clean-up industry.
With decades of experience in the design, manufacture and rental of pumps for the water, environmental and construction sectors, Selwood has a full product range for all applications including solids handling, high volume drainers, high head, hydraulic submersible, chopper and positive displacement pumps.
