Flamgard has appointed a new Brazilian distributor, in response to a growing number of inquiries for its damper products from South America.

A world leader in high performance fire dampers and blast dampers, Flamgard supplies its products globally to a wide range of customers for installation in everything from industrial plants and power stations, to offshore exploration rigs and ships of all types. All of the products are manufactured in Pontnewynydd, Pontypool by the company’s skilled engineering workforce.

“We are delighted to have agreed terms with our new man in Brazil, Paulo Lima,” said Flamgard managing director Steve Edwards. “Paulo is ideally situated to help us secure more business from potential clients across South America, an increasing area of focus for our business.”

Flamgard employs more than 50 staff at its premises in Pontnewynydd, and continues to invest in the latest laser cutting and CAD facilities. The company has recently had its latest fire damper model tested to resist a 1,300 deg C fire for two hours, a unique performance that ensures its products can be used in the harshest of environments.
