Tokyo-based manufacturer of extruding machinery Japan Steel Works (JSW) has signed an agreement with a Dutch company to help it improve servicing on its extrusion equipment in Europe.

The company is working with the asset management unit of Stork, a company based in Stork, the Netherlands, which specializes in overseeing large assets by the oil and gas, chemical and processing industries.

Initially, the contract will focus on Western Europe.

JSW made the deal, it said in a news release, to formally set out the most appropriate framework conditions for smooth servicing on JSW extrusion equipment in Europe.

The first phase of the agreement encompasses all technical activities in conjunction with servicing, overhauling, modernization and enhancement of existing JSW extrusion equipment.

It will eventually also cover the installation, commissioning and maintenance of JSW’s new TEX generation of extruders.

“Our extensive workshop, located in the centre of the port of Antwerp, combined with our expertise in on-site mechanical services, provide us [with the ability] to deliver fast response times and impeccable maintenance, overhauling and other services for JSW extrusion equipment,” said Jan Vandenbroucke vice president of Stork.

Tadashi Gion, JSW Europe, said: “Stork and JSW are on the same wave length when it comes to understanding customer-relevant assumptions such as competence and performance in given industries, sectors, branches, technologies, not forgetting geographical regions in which we are traditionally active and present at well-known customers”
