The Canadian-headquartered company recently finalized agreements with representatives in Asia-Pacific, Australia, North America and South America that will bring its proprietary heat exchange solutions to the front door of several emerging markets.
“As we continue to expand our solutions into new regions and new applications, it’s vital that we also look at our presence globally to make sure customers have ready access to the resources they need to be successful,” says Solex Thermal Science Chief Executive Officer Lowy Gunnewiek.

The recent investment expands Solex’s existing global network of 22 additional representatives that are currently located across Africa, Europe, FSU, Asia-Pacific and North and South America.
“The decades-long relationships that we have with many of our representatives shows our ongoing commitment to providing customers with best-in-class service and technical support,” says Gunnewiek.
