New Vulkan Subsidiary Established in Australia

Press Release
Wednesday, February 20, 2013

The Vulkan Group of companies has established a new fully owned (100%) subsidiary company.

 

With effect from 1st January 2013, Vulkan Australia PTY LTD (VA) has been representing all three Divisions of the Group - Vulkan Couplings, Vulkan Drive Tech and Vulkan Lokring.

 
Following several years of successful presence in the Australian market through the branch office of Vulkan Industries Far East Pte Ltd. - which has its head office in Singapore - Vulkan wanted to reinforce its sales activities in Australia.

 

By doing so, the enterprise is responding to increased demand, primarily in the field of marine and industrial drive technology. The new subsidiary company is located in a strategically favourable site in Gosford, near Sydney. This is where the former branch office was also located.

 
The Managing Director of the new subsidiary company is Stephen Samson, who has been working in the industry for more than 20 years. Prior to joining Vulkan, Mr Samson was, among other things, CEO for Asia at Drivetrain Power & Propulsion. "It goes without saying that people like me, who have been active and operating for some considerable time in the field of drive technology, sooner or later come into contact with the market leader for highly flexible couplings" explained Mr Samson as he became acquainted with life at Vulkan.  "The challenges posed by this new job have stimulated me from the very outset" explained the graduate in business administration, who perceives his strengths as in particular being in the fields of business development and acquiring new markets. "As far as the future of Vulkan Australia is concerned, I shall focus on the growing business in marine couplings and the increasing demand in the Vulkan Lokring business Division. Moreover, I would like to launch the products of Vulkan Drive Tech for industrial drive technology in the Australian market - primarily in the sectors of underground and surface mining."


"I am pleased that we have been able to gain an internationally successful expert in Stephen Samson for Sales and Marketing who clearly understands the requirements of our customers based on his several years of experience in diverse roles and his comprehensive technical expertise. He will provide a new impetus to our business in Australia." stated Dieter Klitzke, Sales Director of Vulkan Couplings.
