SKF has announced a strategic partnership with SPP Pumps that will see all five SPP UK Service Centres given official accreditation as an SKF Certified Pump Rebuilder. The move underlines SKFs commitment to providing the best pumping solutions to customers through close relationships with service centres.
“There is real synergy between us and SKF,” said John Morgan, Service Centre Aftermarket Business Development Manager for SPP. “We both operate on a global scale, we’re both committed to providing proven quality products and solutions, and we both want to maximize opportunities that will better our businesses as well as our customer support.”
SKF operates the Certified Rebuilder programme on a worldwide scale, and SPP’s key locations around the globe will further support the programme at an international level.
SPP’s development in aftermarket support will also be enhanced with the opening of a number of new manufacturing and service centres.
SPP Pumps has had all five UK centres accredited, with SPP Engineering Services in Hyde being the first. It was followed by Coleford, Northern Ireland, Eastleigh and Glasgow. An SKF employee will also be appointed to work directly with SPP Pumps.
“Through our conversations with SPP Pumps and seeing their facilities first hand, we have full confidence that this partnership will prove fruitful for both parties,” said John Mason, Area Sales Manager Aftermarket North and programme manager for SKF. “We see the UK being the testing ground, following which we intend to expand the partnership programme worldwide.”
