Prerov based Bukacek Electro will undertake the service and support for all the Shung Dar and Atkin equipment and systems sold by B & B Industry in both countries.

The company’s engineers will play a vital back-up role, installing and commissioning new machinery as well providing comprehensive service and technical support to ensure the highest levels of production output. 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 establishment of sales and service networks which can work with the metal industry in those countries which have recently joined the EU as a major business opportunity, saying: “My recent visits to Eastern Europe have shown me that there is a huge need for reliable, cost effective metal handling equipment. As well as working closely with our agents in the Czech Republic and Slovakia to help them exceed their sales targets, over the next few months we shall also be working in countries such as Hungary and Latvia to identify companies which have the right profile to act as our agents.”
