Elmo Rietschle appoints PSI Ireland as advanced vacuum distributor
Elmo Rietschle has appointed Pneumatics and Sensors Ireland (PSI) as an advanced level distributor in Ireland, to provide expert sales and service support across its entire range of vacuum technology and system products.
Based in Co. Kilkenny, the company has more than 25 years’ experience serving a broad range of customers in the food and beverage, factory automation, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, from small independents through to multi-national manufacturers.
Michael Murphy, Managing Director at PSI explains the reasons behind the addition of the Elmo Rietschle brand to its portfolio. “We have in-depth knowledge of all aspects of compressed air technologies and factory automation and in recent years, have received increasing numbers of enquiries looking for vacuum system solutions as the Irish market continues to grow in this area.
“We already work with many major product manufacturers to offer our customers the latest pneumatic technologies. So, we wanted to be sure that our new vacuum system product offer would meet our customer’s expectations for high quality and reliability backed by rapid parts’ supply and on-site support.
“The Elmo Rietschle brand is renowned within the industry for its durability and performance and is an ideal addition to the range of services and solutions that we can offer to our valued customer base.”
John Fleming, Sales Manager at PSI, who heads up the company’s vacuum systems’ division added: “We can now provide the full spectrum of Elmo Rietschle vacuum solutions, from a single pump through to a more comprehensive system solution, either bespoke-designed or off-the-shelf.
“In particular, we are seeing an increase in demand for oil-free solutions in food and hygiene-critical applications. Here, the new Elmo Rietschle VLR claw pump is proving popular.
“These dry claw pumps run without the need for lubricating oil and offer significant energy saving and high efficiency compared to the traditional rotary lobe blower designs without internal compression.
“We have also invested heavily in our stock levels of vacuum pumps and genuine spare parts, to ensure rapid response to our customers’ demands. This is backed by our two dedicated vacuum engineers serving the whole of Ireland, offering comprehensive service and support packages, backed by the supply of genuine spare parts.”
“Myles Mander, VP Tech Distribution Manager at Elmo Rietschle concludes: “When we select our distributor partners, we naturally expect high levels of technical expertise, product knowledge and the service infrastructure to support customers with their equipment maintenance.
“However, we also want Elmo Rietschle customers to receive the best advice, tailored to their business and this is where the team at PSI have demonstrated their commitment to customer excellence. The team prides itself on developing close relationships and familiarising itself with the unique business environment of each of its customers, before suggesting equipment upgrades; ensuring it provides the best advice at all times.
“We look forward to working in partnership with PSI over the coming years and wish the team every success.”
