New agent for CFT in the UK and Ireland


One of the emerging forces in the bottling, canning and brewhouse sectors, CFT of Parma in Italy, have appointed Richard Portman and his UK based team to drive sales in the beverage industry by appointing him their agent in the UK and Ireland.

Richard Portman commented of the latest agency that he is now representing, "I have been very impressed with both the CFT company and their product range, which I believe will be ideal for this market. I have been in discussions with CFT for some time now and I am pleased to say that we have a significant number of potential clients already, bearing in mind that I only concluded the agency at Brau in early November."

The CFT range of machinery is a great fit for the cider, beer, water and soft drinks industry, and is suitable for both the craft sector right up to the mid-sized firms who are looking for lines up to 32,000 c.p.h. CFT manufacture all of their own equipment apart from labellers, where we will of course include Makro labellers in the lines. With a number of potential clients looking at can lines where they will be labelling their cans, it is a perfect fit for us in this market.

Richard continued, "I have the after sales and service team well established out of our Burton on Trent offices, who will be able to assist in both the installations and after sales and service in the coming months. There are already a number of CFT installations in the UK, which we will be looking after and we look forward to discussing this opportunity with the existing customers in the coming weeks."
