Simon Paulis, Vice President and General Manager of Graco EMEA visits Hyspec Zambia

On July 10th, 2012, Simon Paulis, Vice President and General Manager of Graco EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa) visited Hyspec Zambia. During his Zambia trip, Mr Paulis visited the Hyspec Chingola warehouse, as well as the Hyspec facility at the Solwezi First Quantum Mine (FQM). Mr Paulis was able to see some of the Graco lubrication installations assembled by Hyspec in the mechanical workshops, as well as other facilities which utilize Graco products.
A presentation on new Graco LD Series™ pumps was given to the Hyspec staff on site, and Graco solutions and trainings for the mining environment were discussed between the staff and Mr Paulis.
“I was very impressed with the Hyspec operations in Zambia, and by the conditions in which Hyspec operate” said Mr Paulis after his visit. “Hyspec is one of our official distributors for lubrication equipment in Africa, and is working hard to promote our solutions in the mining industry across the continent. During my visit I met dedicated Hyspec professionals who are keen to understand their customers’ requirements and provide the best solutions available. Having Hyspec as our distribution partner in Africa has proved to be a valuable asset to Graco, and we are very thankful to Hyspec for their hard work and commitment to promote our solutions.”
