Contec, one of Germany’s leading solution provider of innovative filtration and separation systems has announced that they have signed a representation and distribution agreement with Marty Hendrickx of Component Specialists in Roscoe, Illinois to better meet the increasing demand for the Contec Oil Mist Separators (COMS) in the US.

Contec plans to develop operations and projects in the US were initiated by visits to various trade shows as well as increasing requests for Contec Oil Mist Separators (COMS) directly from the US.

The new distribution cooperation, which includes after-sales services and direct delivery of spare and wearing parts within the US, will be the company’s second representation outside Germany.

With Marty Hendrickx Contec continues to strengthen its sales on the US market. Marty has been very successful in sales for years and has more than 25 years of experience in sales, marketing, and engineering of components for the commercial vehicle and power generation industry.

This new cooperation and representation will allow Contec to better serve, market, and commercialize its products on the US market. The company has recently set up a new distributer in Hyderabad, India, as well.

Managing director of Contec Jochen Lehmkuhl said:"The new distribution agreement and representation in Roscoe, Illinois is an important step towards realizing our sales targets outside Germany.

"This new representation is the first of many important changes for the company in 2013. It will help us to provide a better and quicker service and thereby further grow the business that we currently enjoy in the US."

The new direct contact in the US will primarily handle Contec’s flagship product Contec Oil Mist Separators (COMS).

The power generation as well as oil and gas industry has undergone significant changes after Fukushima towards a mix of conventional but more efficient power technology and the renewable energy.

Beginning in 1987 a filtration system for the extraction and filtration of oil mist was developed by Contec in close cooperation with one of the customers.

This was the starting point of Contec Oil Mist Separators (COMS), which was awarded the Environmental Technology Award in 1990. The filter system has recently been adapted for the extraction and filtration of oil mist on the Celebrity Silhouette, which is the fourth of five ships for the shipping company Celebrity Cruises.
