GEA in Ireland Offers a Single Source For Aseptic and Hygienic Process Components

GEA Process Technologies Ireland, based near Dublin, part of GEA Process Engineering has restructured its components department to bring together technology-leading brands, to strengthen the company’s service offering and provide a single source for hygienic and aseptic components for customers throughout Ireland.

For over 30 years GEA Process Technologies Ireland has served the liquid processing needs of the country’s brewing and beverage, dairy, food, chemicals, pharma and environmental protection industries. The recent restructuring brings together the sales and back-up services for GEA’s world famous brands – GEA Pumps, GEA Tuchenhagen (pumps and valves), GEA Aseptomag (the Swiss technology leader for aseptic valves and systems), and GEA Breconcherry (CIP systems) – into a single offering that provides a seamless service for the company’s wide range of clients.

GEA Process Technologies Ireland will now supply a much wider range of components and back-up services in Ireland. “There are distinct benefits in combining the brands into a single offering,” explains Paul Kenny, Components and Spare Parts Manager. “We can now offer a service that provides quotations, after-sales and product servicing from one central point of contact. This means cost savings and quicker response times for customers from experienced engineers who have good local knowledge and are familiar with plants and processes. It’s now possible for a single engineer to maintain equipment from all four brands.”

Combining supply and service for all four brands is also more efficient for customers. Now customers can order from a single source, have one point of contact for after-sales requirements, one contract and lower-cost, more efficient administration. “Because engineers are working more closely with customers, on a range of equipment, they have a much more holistic view of the plant and its production needs,” says Paul Kenny. “It means that we can be true partners for all our clients’ hygienic and aseptic component needs and be much more proactive in helping them maintain maximum plant efficiency.”

GEA Process Technologies Ireland also maintains strong links with other GEA companies including GEA Diessel for electromagnetic flow meters and GEA Wiegand for jet pumps that provide hygienic and aseptic components to the processing industries. The company believes that it offers the most comprehensive range of components and services in Ireland for this competitive sector.
