Pneumofore has installed its vacuum pumps at an Angolan glassworks.

Pneumofore had previously installed its air-cooled vacuum pumps at other glass plants in Nigeria, Ethiopia and South Africa where they have been in operation for more than 10 years without any problems.

The company said: “Good references are our first and best sales tool, these distant customers are satisfied, even though there is no local service centre.

"Training about ordinary maintenance is given to the customer during the commissioning phase, so that he can operate and service independently.”
