Weir Minerals has launched its first service centre in Hungary to provide increased support to its growing customer base in the country, as well as in Romania and the former Yugoslavia.
The centre is in Tatabánya in the north of Hungary, well placed for the motorway network allowing rapid access to customer locations around the country and beyond.
As well as providing a convenient location for off-site repair and maintenance works by a team of engineers permanently based at the centre, the site will also hold strategic stock to minimise delivery times for replacement parts.
The new location also includes a permanent office for the Weir Minerals’ sales team in Hungary.
Weir Minerals’ key customers in the territory include industrial contractor GEA-EGI, ash handling and bulk materials specialist EWB, steel producer ISD Dunaferr and the Mátra Erömü power station.
Ferenc Puskas, Weir Minerals’ sales manager for Hungary, said: “Weir Minerals has been supplying pumps and other equipment to businesses in Hungary, Romania and the former Yugoslavia for two decades and we have built a strong reputation with our customers.
“This is a key region for the business and the new centre will allow us to grow our share of the local market by making the service we provide our existing customers even better and improving our proposition for winning new business.”
Weir Minerals Europe delivers end-to-end solutions for all mining, transportation, milling, processing and waste management processes across a range of industries and in more than 30 different territories.
