“We service local companies from various industries such as wastewater treatment, fruit growers, sugar, timber, food processing and the heavy-duty industry. One of our strengths has always been our wide range of products.

“During these difficult times where customers need to ramp up and make up for lost time quickly, we want to be there for them. The last thing they need is a production line standing still due to a lack of spare parts or delayed product supply, and this is where we come in. We have developed an impressive local supply to meet the market demand,” Broglia said.

The company can also take on more complex jobs that require additional design and engineering, allows it to provide full plug-and-play solutions.
