TEFSA-Group, a leading international designer and manufacturer of industrial dewatering and filtration equipment headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, has formed a strategic partnership with Applied Process Equipment, Inc., a value-added wastewater technology distributor in Scottsdale, Ariz. Under the terms of the agreement, Applied Process Equipment, through its wholly owned subsidiary, TEFSA-USA, will be the exclusive agent for TEFSA-Group’s entire suite of high-performance liquid-solid separation equipment in the U.S. and Canada.

TEFSA currently produces and supplies over 35 different products including chamber and membrane filter presses, belt filter presses, pressure filters (leave, candle, cartridge, mesh and bag types) and vacuum filters (drum and belt types).

“Applied Process Equipment has demonstrated an unparalleled knowledge and experience in the wastewater industry,” said Arnoud Sanz, TEFSA-Group Export manager. “This, together with an exceptional commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, made them the ideal partner for our expansion in the North American marketplace.”

“To take advantage of the opportunity in today’s emerging wastewater treatment markets, it is crucial that equipment suppliers establish industry partnerships to strengthen their competitive positions,” said Applied Process Equipment president Richard Sinclair. “The TEFSA filtration product line positions us as a one-stop resource for packaged dewatering systems including all ancillary pumps, UV devices, clarification equipment, tanks, mixers and controls, to meet our customer’s needs for cost-effective procurement.”

“TEFSA products are engineered to deliver lifecycle economy with long life, low maintenance and simple, automatic operation,” added Rob Wise, vice president of Sales and Marketing for TEFSA-USA. “We are very excited to bring TEFSA’s European technology to the U.S. and Canada.”
