Filtermist International Limited is delighted to announce that it has appointed Bucharest-based Klarwin as the official distributor in Romania for its UK manufactured oil mist collectors.
The two companies first met at EMO 2019 following a visit by Klarwin employees to Filtermist’s stand. This timing proved extremely auspicious as International Distributor Manager Richard Smith had already planned to meet with potential distributors in Romania the following week. Richard takes up the story, “I met with Klarwin in Bucharest in September and then in December Adrian Dobre, Klarwin’s founder and CEO, visited our Telford site. The relationship progressed when two Klarwin engineers visited us earlier this year (pre-COVID!) for technical training so we are delighted to be able to cement this partnership formally.”
Home to European production facilities for many multi-national manufacturers due to its reputation for supplying quality components at a relatively low cost compared with neighbouring competitors, Romania offers substantial potential for Filtermist. “Awareness of the need for effective oil mist removal is beginning to increase amongst manufacturers in Romania,” continues Richard, “and it is almost inevitable that tighter indoor air quality regulations will be introduced in the foreseeable future.
“Every business has a duty to protect workers from exposure to airborne hazards in the workplace – and that includes oil mist particles. If left in the atmosphere oil mist can cause a range of respiratory diseases including Occupational Asthma and Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis so it is vital that effective extraction is used in all manufacturing applications where coolant is used and oil mist is generated.”
Klarwin, a trademark of Process Engineering SRL which was established in 2004, specialises in technical consultancy, systems and services for filtration in industrial applications. The company works with some of Romania’s leading manufacturers in a range of industries including food, automotive and pharmaceuticals, and partners with a number of global technology providers.
“Klarwin is an excellent fit for Filtermist. The management team is extremely motivated, and the company already has an extensive client base including major accounts in key industries. Its technical and service-based approach mirrors how we work in our most successful markets and is something we are working at replicating worldwide. Klarwin does not provide products – it provides solutions. This is a very attractive proposition for customers and has certainly been a winning formula for the company to date. We are very much looking forward to developing our relationship with Klarwin to ensure Romania’s manufacturing community has access to the best methods of oil mist extraction on the global market,” concludes Richard.
“For us, mainly for our Klarwin Automotive and Industrial Technology division, the partnership with Filtermist represents an important pillar in our strategic business development towards Fluid Perfection - our brand promise. Filtermist products and their professional team of specialists are an excellent completion for our portfolio of elite technology suppliers. I am sure that together, we will support our industrial business partners to improve in a cost-effective way cleanliness and safety in their production plants”, says Adrian.
