EPTDA expands membership in Western Europe

Brussels, Belgium – Three leading distributors and two manufacturers in the power transmission and motion control (PT/MC) industry have joined the European Power Transmission Distributors Association (EPTDA) recently. They include four new Italian members (distributor companies V.B. Moto-Transmissioni SNC and ATI Morganti, and manufacturer companies UNIMEC and MecVel) and one Scottish distributor (R+M Bearings).

EPTDA’s already consolidated presence in Italy is now getting even stronger, with 17 distributors and also 17 manufacturer member companies. “Italian companies in the PT/MC industry have a long history of producing and providing high-quality products and services for the European PT/MC industry and this can only make EPTDA’s position stronger in Italy now [by] adding these new member companies to its membership base,” said Hans Hanegreefs, EPTDA’s executive vice-president.

EPTDA is also strongly embedded in the UK, one of EMEA’s leading countries in the PT/MC industry, with the arrival of R+M Bearings taking the number up to 38 member companies in this country.

In total, EPTDA is present in 33 countries in the Europe, Middle East and Asia (EMEA) area and beyond, and is looking forward to developing its vast network of representation in many more countries. At its 2015 Annual Convention in Barcelona (taking place September 23-25), EPTDA expects more than 300 delegates from its member companies to join the association for three days of networking, productive talks and events. More than 250 delegates had registered by early July.
