DARLINGTON, U.K. – Vortex Global Limited, a solids and bulk handling components company, has appointed Alpha Engenharia as its representative agent in Portugal. This partnership allows Vortex to formally extend its products and services to reach new markets, as the company has not previously held representation in Portugal.

A subsidiary of the company Ana Beco Malheiro, Lda., Alpha Engenharia began activities in 2015. Its main objective is to provide technical and commercial assistance across industries in regards to automation, instrumentation, valves and accessories. Through a selection of equipment from various suppliers, Alpha Engenharia’s dynamic and competent team ensures the best solutions for use in industrial applications.

By offering technical support and after-sales service, Alpha Engenharia seeks to establish strong relationships with Vortex customers from day one.

“We have worked with Alpha Engenharia in the past on other projects in the Portuguese market,” said Laurence Millington, managing director of Vortex Global Limited. “They have proven to be an active sales group that fits very well with Vortex’s ongoing vision for expanding services across Europe. Our expectation is Alpha Engenharia will grow Vortex’s core and engineered business in this promising Portuguese market.”
