transfluid Maschinenbau, based in Germany, recently opened a new subsidiary in Greenville, South Carolina, USA. The company manufactures tube bending and forming machines for hydraulics and other systems.
The USA is an important step for transfluid, said Stefanie Flaeper, Sales and Marketing Director at transfluid. The operation covers nearly 10,000 ft2 (900 m2) in a modern building that includes offices, a warehouse with spare parts and a showroom. All the staff has been trained. Some have been involved with the technology company for decades, with extensive experience in sales and service activities — everything from initial requests to machine commissioning to upgrading equipment in the field.
A number of employees even underwent intensive product and service training at the factory in Schmallenberg. U.S.-based Jeff Gilchrist said he gained insight into the latest software and mechanical developments, strengthened existing relationships with colleagues in Germany and is working to expand the global transfluid network.
