Eriez Flotation Division (EFD) has opened a new sales and engineering office in the Surco District of Lima, Peru. This office will support existing customers in Peru and it will serve as the base for executing a number of exciting new flotation projects that have been recently awarded. EFD already has offices in Australia, Brazil, Chile, Canada and the United States.

Jose Giovanni Concha has been selected as deputy director of the Peru office. With a degree in chemical engineering and a master’s degree in metallurgy, Concha brings extensive experience in mineral processing, equipment sales and business administration to the new Peruvian office.

EFD’s products include column flotation technology, a highly efficient, low-energy alternative to conventional flotation machines and other flotation-based technologies for the recovery of ultra-fine and coarse materials. EFD gas sparging systems can be used in mineral processing and hydrometallurgical applications for bubble generation as well as a wide range of industrial gas injection applications.

“We are excited to have a home base for our activities in Peru,” said Eric Wasmund, EFD’s global managing director. “Peru represents tremendous opportunities for state-of-the art flotation technology, expertise and hands-on support.”
