AESPUMP Appointed as Sales and Service Partner for Sundyne South Africa
Sundyne, a leading global manufacturer of centrifugal pumps and compressors, recently appointed AESPUMP as the company’s sole authorized representative, distributor, and service provider for South Africa. The company has had operations in South Africa for 40 years. Effective as of May 1, AESPUMP is responsible for sales, maintenance, repair and technical support for all Sundyne products in the country.
AESPUMP was founded in 2012 out of the former rotating equipment repairs division of AESSEAL, a global manufacturer of mechanical seals. The former is currently located in Second, South Africa and specializes in the support of petrochemical refineries and mining operations in addition to API 610 pump repairs.
The appointment came after a comprehensive audit of AESPUMP’s capabilities, which include the following:
- Pump testing facilities
- Level 4BEE certification
- Compliance with ISO 9001, 14001, and OSHAS18001 industrial standards
- merSETA approval for apprenticeship training
- Flame-proofed electric apparatuses for use in explosive gas atmosphere.
"In our search to identify a new sales and service partner for the South African market, we tried to find a company whose business and service model was in alignment with our own," says Colin Guppy, Sundyne's general manger of worldwide sales. "AESPUMP met that criteria."
