Tencarva Machinery has opened a new branch office in Columbus, Mississippi.
Trent Unruh will both sell and perform service-related activities on pumps and liquid processing systems at the facility, reporting to Collins Allen, branch manager in Brookhaven, Mississippi.
Tencarva is a distributor specialising in pumps, liquid processing and custom-designed systems. Since 1978, the company has supplied pumps and repair services to both municipal and industrial customers in the southeast United States. Chemical, citrus, paper, textile and power are just some of the industries which Tencarva has worked with.
Don Wirth, vice president of Greensboro, North Carolina headquartered Tencarva, said in a statement: "This new branch has everything to do with the significant industries located in the 'Golden Triangle' area of Mississippi, which includes Starkville, Columbus and West Point, and the need to be closer and more active with them on a day-to-day basis. Having this office and Trent operating out of it, we’ll be able to take care of these customers better."
Wirth continued: "The project began at the urging of Jason Rowland, branch manager in Jackson, Miss., in early 2015. The impetus was all about taking care of these local customers with better response time, local strategic inventory and quicker service. The result should therefore be increased sales as well as increased service opportunities for our Columbus and Brookhaven, Miss., and Memphis, Tenn., service shop locations."
The new facility used to be a storage university, and covers a total floor space of 1,800 square feet. The statement from Tencarva claims it will offer the company a more focused and consistent presence in the Columbus market place.
