MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Flo Components has received a letter of intent from SKF Lubrication Business Unit (LBU) designating Flo as a SKF LBU System House for both Lincoln and SKF brands. In November, Flo reached an agreement with SKF LBU to become a key distributor of SKF brand lubrication products and solutions for industrial applications in Ontario. Officials say the agreement makes Flo the first official SKF LBU System House to offer the entire spectrum of Lincoln and SKF lube solutions, for all applications including on-road trucks and vehicles and off-road mobile and stationary equipment.
“Over the last 35 years, Flo Components has and continues to set the standard for what a Lubrication System House should be. We look forward to seeing this same level of professionalism, commitment and expertise applied to the SKF brand lubrication products platform,” said Len Shpeley, Ontario district manager for SKF Lubrication Systems. “Over the short-term, the current SKF technical and engineering support team will work alongside Flo to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible.”
President of Flo Components Chris Deckert also announced that Flo has hired an installation technician from SKF to join its current service and installation team.
“Flo Components has been ‘Meeting Customers’ Needs Better’ as lube solutions experts and trusted lubrication advisors with the Lincoln brand of equipment and solutions since 1977, Deckert said. “We look forward to providing the SKF brand customer, with the same exceptional service and support our Lincoln brand customers have come to expect.”
“The ‘SKF branded’ lube product complements the ‘Lincoln branded’ lube product, filling in gaps which existed in the Lincoln line for some special applications,” said Gabriel Lopez, marketing specialist at Flo. “With the addition of the SKF line, we can now offer complete cradle-to-grave lubrication solutions for large operations with several diverse requirements, such as sand and gravel pits, cement plants and paving plants.”
