SKF Lubrication Systems is appointing HES LubeMec, a new division of GroupHES Ltd, as an authorised distributor. HES LubeMec will specialise in the design and supply of SKF's VOGEL lubrication components as well as stocking a limited range of products from SKF VOGEL's extensive catalogue. These products are currently being supported from the Group's Gloucester head office and will be rolled out through its branch network in Leeds, Birmingham and Durham over the course of the next few months.
SKF's close relationship with HES LubeMec means the new distributor can now offer the complete SKF Lubrication range of products as replacement components, as well as being able to offer a full design consultancy, a build capability and complete lubrication system installation on turnkey projects
The SKF VOGEL range includes: grease and oil pump units that can be hand-, air- or electrically-powered; feeder blocks for single-line systems, dual-line systems and the innovative progressive feeder-type systems; and a comprehensive range of accessories, grease-filled pipe and fittings. SKF VOGEL products are suitable for a diverse range of applications, including heavy and light industry, on- and off-road vehicles, paper and steel mills, machine tools, construction plant and food and beverage. In reality they can be used across all industrial applications where components require a measure of lubrication.
Additionally, HES LubeMec will also offer SKF's range of Finnish-made lubrication products used extensively across the paper industry and many other such heavy applications, the SKF Safegrease 2 and Multilube range being the major products in this area.
This new Group HES division will draw on the expertise and infrastructure of its established sister companies, including Hydraulic Equipment Supermarkets Ltd and Branch Hydraulic Systems Ltd, to offer a comprehensive service including distribution, kitting, turnkey design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of complex power packs and recirculation oil systems, on-site service, repair and maintenance.
