By CT2 Staff12 March 2019
Cook Compression has announced two new authorized service partners certified to provide local compressor valve and packing case repairs. Fancraft (Pty) Ltd. serves South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique and Botswana, while WoodServ covers the Middle East and Pakistan.
“We are proud to be expanding our authorized service partner program,” said Dean Lewis, Cook Compression VP Aftermarket, Europe & Russia. “Last year, we saw strong adoption of the certified valve and packing case repair services offered by our inaugural partners in Europe, and we are confident in the high quality of support that we are helping our newest partners deliver to end users in Africa and the Middle East.”
Cook Compression said its authorized service partners have passed a rigorous audit of their processes and equipment, are held to strict quality standards and guarantee their work for warranty periods established by Cook. Service capabilities apply to any brand compressor valve or packing case. Further, each valve that leaves the partners’ facilities is quality tested using a specially designed Cook Compression valve air test bench.
