Tuesday 27 March at the International Tube & Pipe Fair in Dusseldorf marked a significant day for both Thermatool and Western Metal Products Company limited (WEMPCO) of Nigeria, in association with Salzgitter International, as an agreement was signed for the future supply of 22 Thermatool high frequency induction welders.
Mr Lewis Tung, managing director of WEMPCO, Mr Walt Albert, president of Inductotherm Heating & Welding (Thermatool’s European headquarters) and Mr Theobald Albrecht, director of business Africa, Salzgitter – are pictured with members of their staff at the Inductotherm Group Stand in Dusseldorf.
Mr Tung, having already taken consideration from the operation and service of a Thermatool Alpha Shear System and Welder installed in 2011 expressed his future intention to use European built Thermatool equipment in his tube, pipe and profile production.
This considerable investment will span a five year plan for which Thermatool have committed to provide complete support, service, spares and on-going training of the WEMPCO personnel in their Ikeja and Ibafo factories.
The first of these welders are scheduled to be delivered later this year.
