Metso has signed four non-exclusive distribution agreements in India for its valve products. The agreements with Fluidline Systems, General Energy Management Systems Ltd (GEMSL), SB Enterprise and Proflo Systems expand the coverage of Metso's Neles® and Jamesbury® product families into different regions and industries in the growing markets of India. The distribution network will also provide support in services.
The agreements were signed during 1H17. All the partnering distributors have already received orders for valves and positioners. Distributors will serve pulp, paper and several other process industries, such as refineries, chemical, fertilizer, steel, power and wastewater.
"With the help of these distributors, we expand our coverage throughout India as all the distributors operate in different regions. In addition to Metso's own flow control experts in India who take care of the most demanding customer needs, these distributors have their own role in improving local support and inventories as well as providing fast deliveries to our customers," commented Vinay Pradhan, Director, Flow Control, India Market Area, Metso.
