Posi Lock Puller has announced today the opening of its European warehouse and showroom in Brussels, Belgium. The company is an award-winning global manufacturer of gear and bearing pullers, and produces mechanical pullers ranging from 1 to 40 ton capacity, hydraulic pullers from 5 to 200 ton capacity, and specialty tools and accessories.
Getting closer to distributors
By the opening of a warehouse in Brussels, Posi Lock Puller wants to consolidate its presence in Europe and make its range of products physically and easily available for distributors.
“Posi Lock has been a member of the EMEA Power Transmission Distributors’ Association (EPTDA) since 2007 and has served several European and international companies successfully. Building on our strong brand awareness, international reputation, and a legacy of innovation, we want to invest more in our European network and get closer to our distributors,” said Tamara Somerville, Chief Executive Officer of Posi Lock Puller, Inc.
“Importing from the USA has been cited as an obstacle to trade by some of our trusted advisors and partners. We are removing that barrier immediately by starting a permanent European base. This expansion will provide our distributors and customers shortened delivery times as well as the unique opportunity to be able to walk into the showroom and view our entire product portfolio including the 100-ton hydraulic puller,” added Somerville.
Safe maintenance challenges
Posi Lock Puller was founded in 1978 by Dean Somerville and is headquartered in Cooperstown, North Dakota, USA. With its patented “Safety Cage” design, Posi Lock has set the standard for safety, durability, and simplicity of use. Designed for use in any industry where equipment and machinery pose tough maintenance challenges, Posi Lock enhances safety and efficiency while reducing downtime and cost.
Posi Lock is committed to increasing its global presence and supporting its customers around the world. Its European warehouse and showroom is the first step in providing the caliber of service Posi Lock’s customers expect. The company is looking forward to expanding its presence in other global locations in the future.
“I am looking forward to meeting our European distributors at the IAMD Hannover Messe, in April 2019, and revealing some exciting new developments at Posi Lock,” added Somerville. Posi Lock will exhibit at the Joint Pavilion of EPTDA-PTDA, Booth 23, Stand B35 in Hall 24.
