SPX FLOW, Charlotte, N.C., added a new distribution center to its North American network to better serve customers of its Hankison, Deltech and Pneumatic Products brands.

Based in Long Beach, Calif., the new center will particularly benefit all channel partners based in Western United States, Canada and Mexico.

The SPX FLOW dehydration portfolio includes desiccant compressed air dryers, refrigerated compressed air dryers and other air treatment products used in a wide range of industrial applications, including food processing. The main purpose is to ensure a constant supply of clean dry air by removing water vapor, dust or other contaminants that could compromise human health, end-product quality or the lifetime of process equipment.

“Availability and consistency of supply are key for our customers, many of whom are working to tight margins and even tighter deadlines,” says Brian Wood, vice president of sales for dehydration Americas, SPX FLOW. “The new distribution center is part of a strategic network to improve logistics and leverage SPX FLOW’s global capabilities in order to better serve our customers’ needs. It will deliver genuine lead time reductions on our comprehensive range of dehydration equipment, and improve parts availability for the service and maintenance of installed dehydration systems.”
