Pelian Joins AFC-Holcroft
June 30, 2010—
AFC-Holcroft, one of the largest manufacturers of industrial heat treating equipment in the world, announces the signing of an agent in Poland. IndProTech (Industrial Process Technology) deals with the production of new heat treatment equipment, along with services for the repair, modernization, and supply of associated equipment and spare parts, as well as subcontracted labor. IndProTech is headed by Piotr Pelian, who has over 15 years of experience in the heat treating industry. This experience is comprised of more than eight years as a designer and a sales specialist for a large heat treating manufacturer, and several years as technical director for another furnace company before starting InProTech in 2007. Pelian holds an engineering degree from University of Zielona Góra, specialized in automation and organization of production processes. He is fluent in Polish, Russian and English.
Pelian explains his decision to sign the agreement with AFC-Holcroft. "My strategy for expanding this business is based on cooperation with partners such as AFC-Holcroft who have a strong position in their local markets and who are interested in increasing their presence in Central Europe. I am convinced this cooperation will not only reach out to more potential new furnace customers, and also opens the door to IndProTech's labor subcontracting support."
Adds Marc Ruetsch, director of European operations for AFC-Holcroft, "Having someone with the depth of experience as Piotr Pelian, owner of IndProTech, is a real advantage for AFC-Holcroft. Not only is he knowledgeable of the technical workings of heat treating furnaces, but he is also experienced in the total project life cycle - from consultation to engineering, design, construction, and logistics. AFC-Holcroft selects partners carefully, based on their ability to meet our stringent quality standards and we are delighted to welcome IndProTech as our agent in Poland."
