TALIS collaborates with Ernest Lowe in South Africa
TALIS appoints Ernest Lowe as sole distributor for South Africa for the Mining and Industrial markets. Ernest Lowe’s CEO, Mark Tarboton, commented: “Ernest Lowe has now been associated with TALIS for little under one year. We are the sole distributor in Southern Africa for the complete TALIS range. The relationship is growing from strength to strength to the extent that Ernest Lowe has set up a full repair shop for the repair and refurbishment of TALIS valves. We have sent our technician for one-on-one training in Germany to further improve our offering to the market. Our concentration is in the mining and industrial market, slightly different to the traditional TALIS markets. This is opening up several new opportunities and applications for TALIS as well as giving us a stronger product offering to new markets. We foresee a substantial growth in these markets due to our extensive branch coverage of all major mining and industrial centres. We are encouraged by the support from TALIS and trust that this partnership will grow the TALIS footprint in Southern Africa”.
TALIS are pleased at the synergy that has been developing between the companies, particularly in the Mining and Industrial sectors of the market in South Africa. Customers can be assured that Ernest Lowe offer exceptional customer service, backup and after-market service and we are convinced that customers will appreciate this high level of service and support.
“We are glad to have a like-minded distributor on board working together with TALIS, to achieve our goals. With their broad knowledge and a wide customer base, we look forward to continued growth into these market sectors” said Brian Hardie, the International Sales Manager for English Speaking Countries in Africa.
The Mining and Industrial sector is an important growth market for TALIS, and in tandem, with Elco, we are ideally positioned to take advantage of all opportunities that arise.
