MEGTEC Systems has signed an agreement with Furnace Engineering Pty Ltd , an Australian company, to be the exclusive sales representative for its air pollution control products in Australia and New Zealand.
Furnace Engineering will represent MEGTEC in the following industries: metals, mining, pipe and wire production, pharmaceutical production, chemical production, automotive parts and accessories, hardwood veneer and plywood manufacturing, furniture manufacturing, paint, coatings and engraving.
The agreement includes provisions that will allow the eventual manufacturing of MEGTEC’s regenerative thermal oxidisers at Furnace Engineering facilities.
“The goal of the partnership is to use the relationships Furnace Engineering has in markets where MEGTEC is not actively participating, as a way to promote our air pollution control products,” said Gerald Norz, director of service for MEGTEC.
“We currently sell to the printing and mining markets in the region, but want to expand into the metals and automotive sectors, as well as others. This partnership will enable us to do that.”
Furnace Engineering is based in Melbourne and has sales and service centers in both Sydney and Adelaide. It is a designer and manufacturer of heat processing technology.
Whether the need is for a single furnace or total turnkey system, the company has established itself as a single source for heat processing and plant construction expertise.
“Furnace Engineering and MEGTEC Systems are both committed to producing quality products and leading-edge technology that provide unique benefits to our customers,” said Richard Simpson, managing director of Furnace Engineering.
“MEGTEC’s product range complements our products. Coupled with this is our ability to offer manufacturing and service support that could assist in local projects requiring thermal oxidisers.
“Each of these aspects serves to benefit customers and that’s why this partnership is so appropriate.”
MEGTEC customers in Australia and New Zealand are supported through its office in Melbourne, which is staffed with four service technicians, sales personnel and office staff.
Round-the-clock service and availability are key components of MEGTEC’s corporate values and mission.
“When you pair the commitment to quality that both of our companies share, it creates an exciting opportunity for us to work together in bringing state-of-the-art emission control innovation to the marketplace,” Mr Norz said.
Because of its commitment to high quality in both design and manufacturing, Furnace Engineering has earned the Australian Standards ISO 9001 Quality endorsement.
From conceptual design to fabrication, installation and testing of sophisticated control systems, the company¹s attention to detail has proven to be a major contributor to its excellent record of product reliability.
Its product categories include heat-treating, metal melting, metallurgy, ovens, induction heating and induction melting.
