AI2C will now act as Pyroban's European Parts Distribution Centre
Safety company Pyroban has appointed a distributor for its parts in Europe to optimise the logistics process following Brexit. AI2C, based near Marseille in France, has been selected as Pyroban's European Parts Distribution Centre.
The appointment enables EU customers to buy Pyroban-approved parts directly from AI2C which holds stock locally of all fast-moving Pyroban parts to allow rapid shipment.
AI2C will also take care of the import of bespoke and non-stocked parts from Pyroban's manufacturing facility in the UK and handle onward shipment to the customer.
Steve Noakes, managing director of Pyroban, says: "We have listened to our European customers and the problems they (have) experienced with some Pyroban parts orders, extended shipping times and payment difficulties since Brexit. Establishing an EU parts distribution channel is another milestone in the range of services we now offer to support our customers."
Customers now have the choice to either purchase replacement parts from Pyroban UK or through AI2C.
"AI2C has a good position in the market with experience in Ex applications and also serves the same end-users as Pyroban's customers," says Noakes. AI2C also represents Pyroban's sister brand Pyropress and other well-known brands.
The move comes after Pyroban announced improved lead times and simplified shipping arrangements for entire forklift conversions. Pyroban is now providing a complete EU transport service for forklifts coming from the EU to the UK for ATEX conversion, and then returning again to the EU.
