22.07.2019 Flender and Wikov enter into service cooperation agreement

Flender GmbH, Bocholt, Germany – a Siemens company – and Wikov Industry a.s., Prague, Czech Republic, have announced a comprehensive service cooperation which includes gear units from other manufacturers. Both companies anticipate a long-term and sustainable partnership. Plant operators are expected to benefit from Flender's and Wikov's comprehensive service portfolio. The key objective is to provide customers with a one-stop-service, globally.

Plant availability is the key driver of economic success across many industries. Frequently, components from multiple manufacturers are deployed in a single application, which increases complexity of maintenance for operators. Flender's and Wikov's cooperation will enable their customers to benefit from this combined service. Both companies are leading gear unit specialists, and well known for their comprehensive and competent service portfolio.

As a result of this combining of resources, customers of both companies are expected to benefit from Flender's service network with more than 50 repair centres globally. "Our global set-up enables us to serve customers fast, and exactly according to their needs. This is key to further increasing our customers’ plant availability." said Nevzat Özcan, general manager Flender customer service.

Wikov has extensive, long-term experience regarding spare parts for gear units from other manufacturers. "Our engineering know-how enables us to offer customers our comprehensive service portfolio for all gear units, irrespective of the manufacturer." commented Antonín Růžička, managing director of Wikov.;
