Vesconite Bearings has opened an office in New Zealand to assist customers and resellers with their Vesconite low-friction no-grease-required polymer bearing and wear-material requirements.
Vesconite Bearings has also appointed Eddie Swanepoel as Vesconite Bearings New Zealand’s COO.
Swanepoel brings a wealth of experience to the position. He is knowledgeable about a variety of industrial polymers and their applications, and has been employed in the industry, including for Vesconite Bearings’ South African branch, for 10 years.
The new New Zealand company builds on Vesconite Bearings’ plans to expand the brand’s share of the niche thermopolymer industry.
Swanepoel will build on the existing New Zealand client base in conjunction with resellers and particularly concentrate on New Zealand’s agricultural and marine industries, which have been identified as under-serviced potentially-high-value markets.
Vesconite Bearings has warehouses in the US, UK, Netherlands, South Africa and New Zealand, with stocking distributors in Argentina, Australia, Dubai and Singapore.
