Bunting’s Spanish Distributor Visits UK for Training

The Bunting overseas Distributor network continues to grow and last week we were visited by Jordi Castells of SMED Tecnica in Spain.

Jordi’s visit to Berkhamsted was for training and strategic planning.  Business in Spain has been growing steadily and Dave Hills, our Head of Sales, has regularly visited the territory.

“It is fantastic to see Jordi here in the UK,” said Dave.  “Having Jordi in our European headquarters enables us to deliver an intense training programme.  The training covered Magnetic Separation and Metal Detection and included visiting UK customers with our sales team.”

SMED Tecnica specialises in providing solutions and equipment for solids handling (powder, granules, tablets, chips, fibers,  etc.) and slurries.  Many of SMED’s customers encounter problems with metal contamination.  Being able to advise and propose solutions with Magnetic Separators or Metal Detectors extends the service SMED is able to provide their customers.

The company name of SMED refers to a technique used in the food and pharmaceutical industry.   The ‘Single Minute Exchange of Die’ relates to rapidly changing equipment to eliminate downtime between production change such as with recipes and formulas.  The SMED team have the experience and knowledge to help companies improve their processes, achieve higher productivity and reduce manufacturing costs.

“Developing business in any overseas market is dependent upon having well respected and knowledgeable local representatives,” explained Dave.  “Jordi and the SMED team have that presence and have already had great success in developing business for both Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors.  There is huge potential that will be realised by us all working closely together.”

The week long training visit by Jordi from SMED followed the recent announcement of a new distributor being appointed in Denmark.  

“We anticipate announcing the appointment of additional distributors in the near future,” said Dave.  “We are in a period of exciting and substantial overseas expansion.”
