BHS Filtration Technology strengthens presence in Iran by forging cooperation with new sales partner Faris International Co.
The Filtration Technology division continues its global expansion by strengthening its local presence in Iran. The renowned company Faris International Co., based in Tehran, was gained as an exclusive sales partner for the Iranian market in April 2016. By stepping up its sales activities, BHS Filtration Technology is responding to the increasing demand for its solutions in the Iranian market, in particular, in the oil and gas sector. This increased commitment in Iran will allow BHS-Sonthofen to improve customer service and project management in the region.
Iran controls the fourth-largest oil and second-largest gas reserves on the globe. As international trade sanctions are relaxed against Iran, opportunities for investing in new projects as well as modernizing existing facilities in the oil and gas sector have arisen. In this area, BHS-Sonthofen offers turnkey systems for clarifying filtration of process liquids, for example, for use in amine and MEG processing plants.
Faris International Co., with company headquarters in the Iranian capital Tehran, was founded in 1991 and is led by Managing Director Yashar Tavakoli in the second generation. Over the years, the company evolved into a leading sales partner of well-known European manufacturers focusing on plant components for the oil and gas industry, the petrochemical sector, wastewater processing and the steel industry in Iran.
BHS-Sonthofen Managing Director Dennis Kemmann and Sales Engineer Tim Ochel, the partner liaison, expressed their satisfaction with the new sales partnership during their visit to the Iran Oil Show in Tehran: “By joining forces with Faris International, we have built a strong network and significantly strengthened our presence in the Iranian market. Our core concern is to provide our customers with direct, local support as a gateway to forging close business ties. The solid reputation and rich experience of Managing Director Yashar Tavakoli and his employees weighed heavily in favor of our decision to enter into this exclusive sales partnership with Faris International Co.”
