Rotork Australia has been appointed the sole distributor for the complete range of Schischek products for Australia and New Zealand. This follows the acquisition of the Schischek group by Rotork P.L.C.
Schischek specialises in the design, manufacture and sale of explosion-proof electric actuators, sensors, transmitters and controllers mainly for the HVAC, chemical, pharmaceutical, shipbuilding and offshore industries.
