Solukon, Augsburg, Germany, has announced new distribution partners to strengthen its market position in the US, reported to be one of the company’s core business areas alongside central Europe. The new US partnerships consist of five US companies, dividing the sales area by states.

All US Solukon distribution partners will report to Michael Sattler, Global Sales Director at Solukon who is also responsible for the global reseller network. “As pioneer and market leader in depowdering it is important to us, that customers and prospect receive the best possible consulting service wherever they are located in the world. Partnering with DMARK, Hartwig, MAHAR, Phillips and BahFed will not only eliminate the time shift effects but gives every US prospect a regional depowdering contact person nearby”, shared Michael Sattler.
