AUMA is continuing to expand its global sales and service network. The foundation of AUMA Iberia S.L.U. on 1 April 2021 strengthens the group’s presence on the Iberian Peninsula. AUMA Iberia looks after customers in Spain and Portugal from offices in Vila-Seca (Tarragona), Madrid and Lisbon.
“By establishing AUMA Iberia as an AUMA subsidiary we want to continue the successful work of our former representatives to best support our customers in Spain and Portugal,” says Ferdinand Dirnhofer, Chief Sales Officer of the AUMA Group.
AUMA has been active in Spain and Portugal for more than 50 years. Up to now, the company has been represented in Spain by local agents IBEROPLAN, S.A. and SERTEMO, S.L. Thanks to these successful cooperations, AUMA is today one of the leading electric actuator suppliers on the Iberian Peninsula.
The team members who have been taking care of AUMA customers at IBEROPLAN and SERTEMO have now joined the AUMA Iberia team. “We are very happy to be starting the new company with an experienced team,” says Hans van Middelkoop, Managing Director at AUMA Iberia, who himself has 20 years of experience in the actuation industry. “For our customers this means a seamless transition, and we can continue to support them with all our competence as usual.”
25 team members offer comprehensive support for all aspects of AUMA actuators, from consulting and project planning, through supply, assembly and commissioning to maintenance and repair. AUMA Iberia also operates a valve automation centre where actuators are mounted to valves and tested.
Van Middelkoop sees enormous market potentials in Spain and Portugal, in particular thanks to the presence of major local valve manufacturers and engineering companies with a strong international focus. “With AUMA Iberia we are ideally positioned to further strengthen our market position,” he says.
