Offering benefits to the food & beverage industry

28 February 2013

Leading industrial automation products supplier, Murrelektronik, has announced the appointment of John Price as Food & Beverage key account manager

Price is the latest member of the rapidly expanding UK-based team and, says the company, a further demonstration of its commitment to provide customers with the best possible service by combining industry-specific knowledge, quality German-made products and technical sales support at the highest level. 

"This is a really exciting time to be joining Murrelektronik as the company’s reputation as a trusted manufacturer of electrical equipment goes from strength to strength,” says Price. "With investment into growing the UK team to offer a superior customer experience and a commitment to product innovation, I envisage real benefits for our customers in the food & beverage sector – industry-specific products, excellent logistics for on-time deliveries, reliable system solutions and comprehensive diagnostic options.”

Murrelektronik provides a wide range of connectors that meet the requirements of the food & beverage industry. Metal parts of the connectors designed specifically for the sector have been replaced with stainless steel, ensuring the highest corrosion protection. The light colour connector covers make it easy to notice dirt and mould. Plugs and cables are made of a plastic material that fulfils all demands of the food & beverage industry. 

Murrelektronik recommends the rugged M12 Steel connector for applications with frequent high-pressure wash downs. It has a stainless steel housing, can be washed down with acidic and caustic cleaning agents, and is suitable for a temperature range up to 105˚C. All Murrelektronik connectors for the food & beverage industry are tested according to ECOLAB procedures, so they are guaranteed to meet the highest requirements regarding non-leakage and corrosion resistance.
