Burkert appoints PRTS as its distributor for North Queensland

Bürkert has appointed Pacific Rim Technical Services (PRTS) as its distributor for North Queensland (NQ), based from Townsville.

PRTS was founded more than 20 years ago as an engineering consultancy and distributor of instrumentation and control equipment to the local sugar and mining industries.

The new distribution partnership with Bürkert corresponds with the move by PRTS into newer and larger premises.

“We were actively seeking new opportunities to match our expanded capabilities,” said Greg Fitzgerald, Managing Director of PRTS.

“Closer partnership with Bürkert will deliver the best of both worlds – local partnership, service and responsiveness for NQ businesses, backed by the resources of an international company.  It’s win-win.”

Headquartered in Townsville and serving the coastal and inland NQ region, PRTS has three sales engineers, all of whom will be actively selling Burkert products.

Bürkert Managing Director Chris Hoey noted that the complementary expertise of each company makes the distributor alliance an ideal fit for serving this market.
