Atkin Automation has now appointed a Latvian agent - Machinery Latvia - based in Riga. Machinery Latvia is a subsidiary of a large Finnish company which also operates in Lithuania and Estonia. With a wealth of knowledge and experience of the Latvian metal industry, it will be responsible for the sales and marketing of the Shung Dar and Atkin/BHP products and automation solutions throughout Latvia, which is one of the EU countries with greatest growth potential. As well as installing and commissioning new equipment, Machinery Latvia’s engineers will provide a technical support service to ensure users gain the maximum production benefit from their investment. Atkin Automation’s international reputation has been built over many years around its manufacture of the Atkin and BHP range of specialist, high performance coil handling and processing products and equipment. The Shung Dar products sit comfortably alongside its existing range and enable the company to offer highly cost effective equipment options which reflect individual application feature and performance requirements.

Atkin Automation Managing Director Chris Ward sees the development of successful sales agents across Eastern Europe as being key to the company’s growth strategy, saying: “Huge investment is being made into the economies of those former Eastern Block countries which have recently joined the EU, and this is already starting to create major sales opportunities for our products and solutions.” He continued: “We shall now be working closely with Machinery Latvia to help it achieve early sales success, and I hope to be able to announce further agency appointments in Eastern Europe very shortly.” Photo caption Atkin Automation Managing Director Chris Ward.
