PORTSMOUTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE, USA – October 3, 2017 – The Micronics Engineered Filtration Group (Micronics Filtration Holdings, Inc.) is very pleased to announce that it has signed an exclusive distributorship agreement in Chile with Ultrapoly S.A., a leading provider of products and services for the mining and mineral processing industry based in Macul, Santiago.
The signing of this distributorship agreement underscores Micronics’ confidence in Ultrapoly as a strategic partner and is an important action to secure a stronger and deeper position in Chile for Micronics’ industry-leading filtration products and services.
South America and Mexico have been and continue to be important, long-standing markets for Micronics’ filtration products and services including filter cloth, Micronics-brand filter presses, Ishigaki-brand filter presses, filter plates, and a full range of spare parts and services used for liquid/solid separation in the mining and mineral processing and other demanding markets.
Chile is the top copper-producing country in the world and mining of natural resources like copper, gold, silver, molybdenum, iron and coal are important industries in Chile.
The new agreement with Ultrapoly covers distribution of Micronics’ wet filtration products and services in Chile as well as distribution of Micronics’ air pollution control products and services for baghouse dust collectors.
“We are very pleased to partner with Ultrapoly S.A. in further developing the market in Chile for Micronics’ full range of liquid and dry filtration products and services,” according to Micronics’ President and Chief Executive Officer, Bernard C. Faulkner.
