We are pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with Gastechnika Ltd. for exclusive PLEXOR® distributorship in Bulgaria.

Next to representing various suppliers to the gas industry, the company also has an extensive calibration facility for volume correctors and rotary meters.

Grigor Filkov, Managing Director of Gastechnika adds: ”I am also glad to announce the partnership between Wigersma & Sikkema and Gastechnika. The natural gas industry in Bulgaria is at a turning point, which offers great possibilities. With our network, experience, technical knowledge and the addition of PLEXOR® to our product portfolio we further strengthen our position as a strategic supplier and service company, to both utility companies as well as to other industries. PLEXOR® fits in very well, providing the possibility to introduce uniform inspection procedures with operator-independent measurement results. And, of course, for lowering operational expenses PLEXOR® will be indispensable for further introduction of Condition Based Maintenance.
Jan Sietsma, Commercial Director at Wigersma & Sikkema mentions: “Adding Gastechnika to our worldwide distributor network is another step forward for us. Increasing our presence in Eastern Europe is part of our strategy to further grow the PLEXOR® activity in that area. During a recent joint seminar hosted by Gastechnika and Wigersma & Sikkema it became clear that there are many opportunities. The major utility companies are open to innovation. Next to being our exclusive sales partner for Bulgaria, Gastechnika is also planning to up a service for which they will use the PLEXOR® system to do functional inspections and maintenance for their customers. In this way all potential users can benefit from the advantages our innovative system offers”.
