Flexicon Ltd (flexicon.com) has opened a new office here to provide factory-direct engineering services and technical sales support to customers throughout Spain, it was announced by Keith Bourton, managing Director.

 "The Barcelona location, coupled with our new Spanish language website, will fuel Flexicon's rapid growth in the region by providing a dedicated Spanish-language staff with full access to corporate resources," says Bourton.

The Barcelona office is headed by Víctor Zamora Gómez, regional sales manager. He holds a degree in Electronic Engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, and previously served as project manager for a bulk solids consultancy where he managed mechanical and electrical aspects of small to large bulk handling projects.

At Flexicon he will be responsible for building relationships with plant managers, engineers and other decision-makers in facilities that handle bulk solid materials across the food, pharmaceutical, mineral and general chemical industries.

"The Barcelona office will have full access to Flexicon's engineering resources, including details on more than 20,000 installations of Flexicon bulk handling equipment worldwide," says Bourton. 

Flexicon is a world leader in bulk handling equipment including: mechanical conveyors; pneumatic conveying systems; bulk bag filling, unloading and conditioning machinery; box, drum and container dumpers; manual dumping stations; weigh batching systems; and automated plant-wide bulk handling systems integrated with new or existing process equipment.

Flexicon (Europe) Ltd is located in Kent, England, and is a fully owned subsidiary of Flexicon Corporation of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA.
