SPP Pumps has announced investment into its dewatering division, with the appointment of a new sales manager and a partnership with a new Australian distributor.
Colin Baker has been appointed UK and Ireland Sales Manager, and will hold responsibility for maximising opportunities in the market, growing existing relationships and expanding the company’s customer base in the dewatering sector.
With nearly 20 years in the pump industry, Colin is excited about the challenges that lie ahead: “When I first met with SPP I was impressed with the scale and set-up of the company - the scope of opportunity is immense and I feel really positive about the future of the dewatering sector.”
Colin will be working across the entire dewatering portfolio, promoting SPP’s range of Autoprime pumps: vacuum assisted, self-priming pumps that have become the benchmark for reliable, durable and compliant dewatering applications such as flood protection, ground water control, sewage management and well point dewatering.
In addition to the new appointment, SPP Pumps is teaming up with Australian distributor FITT Resources. The partnership will see SPP’s dewatering range of pumps sold throughout Australia and New Zealand, and an order has already been placed for nearly £200 000 worth of SPP’s Q Series pumps.
FITT Resources specialises in the supply of premium mechanical engineering products, parts and servicing, offering premium pumps across a wide range of industry sectors, including flood protection and water management.
Gregg Fowler, Director at FITT Resources, said: “We’re delighted to be working with SPP. Both our companies operate on the same ethos of putting the customer at the heart of everything we do. We respond to customer needs and provide the best solutions.”
Duncan Jackson, Business Unit Manager for dewatering at SPP, concludes: “SPP has a versatile range of pumps and box canopies that can provide our customers with the pump solutions they need, when and where it really matters. We have the ability to be versatile and responsive, and that is what enables us to be successful. With Colin Baker on board and FITT Resources already working to sell throughout Australia, I’m feeling confident 2016 will be a great year.”
