Explosion protection specialist Pyroban invests in its French operation to enhance the support provided across the region.
With a new management team in place, a fresh approach to customer service and an improved technical centre, Pyroban France is growing its customer base across the region.
The centre, based in Lyon, provides technically advanced explosion-proof conversions for any forklift brand and associated dealers across France.
Philippe Cren, Sales Manager at Pyroban France, explained: "Pyroban equipment is used throughout the chemical supply chain and related industries where flammable material is handled, such as paint, food, drink, waste, bottled gas and logistics. Additionally, the new added safety system for vehicles, Gascheka duo™, is available for local installation on customer sites in France".
They also provide hazardous area consultation and training services nationwide in support of companies complying with European and local legislation, under the new focus of Maxime Buffetrille, Technical and Training Manager.
Mark Towell, Global Commercial and Business Development Director for the Pyroban Group said: "We now have more field service engineers strategically placed close to key industrial zones across France to support planned and unplanned maintenance, as well as additional sales strength to further develop the relationships with our customers."
Pyroban is a global market leader for the explosion proof conversions of forklift trucks and mobile equipment so that they can be used safely and legally within hazardous areas. Conversions are ATEX 94/9/EC compliant and are carried out in the two main facilities located in the UK and The Netherlands.
Pyroban has been present in Lyon for more than 12 years and has a history in France that stretches back to the late 1980s with roots in Paris. "We are in the business of safety and it is important as a global company, to provide a sustained local service in the local language and culture," concludes Mark.
