09.07.2018 Process Components opens Kemutec BV in the Netherlands

Process Components, Poynton, Stockport, UK, has announced the expansion of subsidiary company Kemutec in Europe, with the long-established manufacturing brand opening a new office in the Dutch town of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Kemutec enjoys a track record dating back more than three decades in designing and supplying advanced powder processing equipment and components for the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. It specialises in sieving, crushing, milling and mixing equipment and systems, as well as Mucon discharge aids, slide valves and iris diaphragm valves.

The decision to expand into the Netherlands will allow Kemutec to be closer to its growing customer base in Europe, where it will concentrate predominantly on the food sector. Initially it will focus on servicing customers in Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The announcement follows the appointment of Johan Lucas, the new vice president of sales and business development who will head up Kemutec BV. He has been working with the Kemutec brand for over 30 years, with experience of deploying the equipment overseas, notably in South Africa, Philippines, Vietnam, China, and Russia as well as in the UK. He speaks fluent Dutch, English and German. 

Process Components aims to grow organically following the creation of the Dutch office, with plans to hire new staff and expand its European partnerships by the end of 2018. Eventually, the new offices will feature test facilities, provide mobile support, as well as local project engineering and servicing. Tony Goodwin, managing director at Process Components, commented: “Kemutec has always had a large and loyal customer base in the Netherlands and nearby, and we now have a huge opportunity to build on this. The proximity of the new office to the head offices, and research and development facilities, of many multinational organisations means it is the ideal base to expand from. Kemutec also has offices and a technology centre in the USA, located near Philadelphia, PA.
