Meet KLINGER’s Sales Partners!
The majority of our customers have already been in contact with our sales partners: Those are the companies who support us in marketing our products and promoting our services. All of them act as resellers, providing expertise and onsite services. Still, some of them go far beyond that, and market products they diligently manufacture under the KLINGER license. In this series, we bring a few of our international sales partners out from behind the curtain – to give you an idea of the important work they do.
International sales partners mean many advantages for our customers:
shorter delivery routes
local production, cutting or assembly as a sustainability measure
reliability even in times of global supply bottlenecks
Since 1992, this company made sure that KLINGER products are used at the hot spots of the Hungarian industry.
Soltész + Soltész started out 30 years ago as a domestic resale company in Hungary for KLINGER’s industrial fittings and flat gaskets, expanding its portfolio step by step.
Today, the company proudly offers the full range of KLINGER products produced within Europe, catering namely to the oil and chemical industries and to energy providers.
Generally, Soltész + Soltész has a very strong presence in the oil refinery sector:
The MOL group, with headquarters in Budapest, is one of their biggest customers. Apart from being an energy supplier, MOL also owns more than 2,000 filling stations all over Central and Eastern Europe. Soltész has been an important supplier of valves to them. In fact, this business relationship was kicked off by KLINGER products with the KLINGER KVN piston valve and KLINGER ball valves, used by MOL. In 2021, more than 50 percent of Soltész + Soltész’s sales were still made in the oil, gas, and petrochemicals sectors.
„Special requirements, toxic media, explosion hazard – that’s where we do best with KLINGER products. Our customers know they can trust the brand.“
György Soltész, founder and CEO of Soltész + Soltész
Delivery within two days
Being the exclusive KLINGER-‘dealer’ in Hungary, Soltzész + Soltész mostly caters to national companies. Says Soltész: “To make sure we can deliver to Hungarian customers within two days, we have everything in stock at all times. Goods are sent from Gumpoldskirchen to our inventory in Budapest every week, each delivery consisting of 1.5 – 2 tons of goods.”
Continuity in unpredictable times
György Soltész has seen many companies come and go. “The world of work has changed. People switch jobs faster, you always meet new people at distributors, and of course COVID and currently also the war in our neighboring country have an effect on the market. Still, we have had this stable partnership with KLINGER for 25 years.” Soltész has worked with KLINGER for almost the entirety of their 30-year existence and has never looked back. “In times like these”, Soltész adds, “continuity is something you can’t express in numbers.”
