Links between Spice Application Systems and its new Canadian trading partner ARBO Engineering, received a major boost last week when product manager David Gicza and service engineer George Apostol arrived at SAS’s Oxfordshire base.
The pair spent the week with SAS managing director Peter King, visiting SAS clients in the UK and Europe and undergoing product training.
Speaking afterwards, Gicza said: “It was a really valuable few days. SAS’s electrostatic equipment is already attracting a great deal of attention among our clients in Canada and the US and this was an excellent way for us to add to our product knowledge and take that back to our team.
“To see the equipment in action and hear first-hand from manufacturers who are reaping the benefits of electrostatics was extremely important and really demonstrates the huge impact which the equipment is set to have in the US snacks market.”
Peter King added: “Although the ARBO team was aware of the benefits that can be achieved with electrostatics, it’s not always until you see something operating and talk to the people who are using the equipment every day, that you fully appreciate what a difference it can make.
“It was a great opportunity to show David and George around and for them to meet some of our valued customers.”
