Finland’s Flowrox has set up a new subsidiary, Flowrox GmbH, in Ratingen, Düsseldorf, Germany.

“For years we have been operating in Central Europe through representatives. Our offering has recently expanded, and we also provide complete industrial solutions.

Dirk Otto has joined Flowrox as managing and sales director, Central Europe. Otto has a background in process technology and solid-liquid separation having worked for companies including Larox, Clear Edge Filtration and Ipsen International.

Flowrox, which specialises in flow control, process automation, environmental and solid-liquid separation technologies, now has 10 subsidiaries in Australia, Chile, China, Finland, Germany, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Sweden and the US, as well as more than 230 sales representatives in over 80 countries.
