Afrox has announced that it has moved its gas equipment manufacturing operations to Europe. According to a statement issued by the company, although the manufacturing plant has moved, there is still strong after-sale service and technical support offered through the local Afrox Research and Development Department.

Afrox moves gas equipment manufacturing to Europe“The recent decision by Linde to move the manufacturing of Afrox’s gas equipment from South Africa to Europe will guarantee that Afrox customers will receive the best possible quality products,” Roberto Dionisio, Head of Research and Development at Afrox Integrated Customer Solutions, says. “Innovating for customers is a core value for Afrox and the Linde Group, as together they continually improve on their reputations as high performance organisations by ensuring they supply world-class products and services that meet customer needs in an ever changing business environment.”

The Afrox gas equipment that is now being manufactured in Italy includes single-stage and multi-stage regulators.

Testing and repairs are still being carried out in South Africa and the products are held in stock locally for expeditious delivery and exchange if under warranty. Afrox is still responsible for all research and development activities around Afrox gas equipment products, with components meeting the approval and high testing standards set by the Afrox Research and Development team before being sent for international certification, Dionisio explains. With the relocation of the manufacturing plant to Italy, these products have been re-certified to ISO2503.

“Quality of equipment and compliance with global standards are two areas that Afrox is not prepared to compromise. We strive to deliver high quality and safe gas equipment to the market based on research into the needs of our customers,” Dionisio says.
