Extensive Range of Blasting Nozzles
ESCO Hydra has consistently expanded its Hydrablast nozzle portfolio during the past nine years and will soon launch a new Web site to give customers a portal that provides a streamlined system for ordering products.
"Our distributors will save time by accessing a real time enquiry system to check stock availability or progress of outstanding orders," said Tom McShannon, sales manager for the Hydrablast division.
The new Web site is intended to give distributors, who are spread across five continents, more dynamic and updated information. Hydra has also developed a new brochure to complement the Web site.
The Hydrablast line will also be going on the road as ESCO Hydra plans to attend global trade shows to highlight such offerings as the Tungsten Carbide, Silicon Carbide, Syalon 050 and Boron Carbide nozzles.
McShannon said the shows also give ESCO Hydra the chance to familiarize existing customers and potentially new customers with the company’s new structure following the July 2011 purchase of Hydra by ESCO Corporation of the U.S. ESCO, which celebrates its 100-year anniversary in 2013, is a leading global provider of wear parts and attachments for the mining and construction industries. The acquisition brings together two companies with traditions rooted in innovative technology.
Hydra became the only UK blast nozzle manufacturer in 2009 when it acquired Uniblast. McShannon said the expansion of the Hydrablast line since that deal has helped the division experience strong growth during the last two years.
"Our extensive range of high quality nozzles, supported with high finished stocks, enables us to offer an excellent delivery performance to service the on-going needs of our customers," he said.
