Steelbro has expanded its network in Argentina with the appointment of Flowbox S.A as Sales and Service agent for Steelbro Sidelifters in Argentina. Flowbox will be customers primary point of contact in Argentina for Steelbro sidelfiter products.
Flowbox S.A relationship with Steelbro began in 2007. Flowbox identified a need to bring containers and mobile offices to the doorstep of their clients. The search for a flexible discharge and load solution for both empty and full containers led them to purchase the first Steelbro Sidelifter for use in Argentina in 2008.
Steadily the service was introduced into the market and the flexible and reliable use of the Steelbro Sidelifter permitted Flowbox to extend their logistic services to events like the international competition for motor bikes – E-formula, Mega Concerts, events like the Dakar rally. Usually the equipment for these events are packed in containers and the Steelbro Sidelifter concept permits operations in areas and surfaces not suited for heavy machinery or mobile cranes.
This way, many experimental logistic operations have been carried out.
The Steelbro units lead the way for logistic inland and transfer stations without the need for costly investments in complex machinery and special surface treatments.
Flowbox CEO Mr. Paul Braeken is truly excited by this appointment. He foresees that in a sparsely populated country like Argentina with many activities in isolated areas like mining, oil & gas, there is a need for flexible and reliable equipment as provided by the Steelbro side lifter.
