While AFT has been active in Russia for about 30 years, strong growth in recent years led to the decision of opening our own sales representative office to better meet the needs of our clients.
The new location in Saint Petersburg will strengthen AFT's presence and position in the Russian and CIS markets for pulp and paper wear parts and equipment, as well as allow us to explore these markets for new opportunities. The Saint Petersburg team is led by Roman Smorgunov, Sales Manager and Julia Babenko, Head of Administration, who will be responsible for managing all operations and support functions.
As we aim to further expand our presence in the pulp and paper industry in Russia, the new office will provide better service to our existing clients as well as boost AFT sales on a global scale.
AFT is a global supplier specializing in stock preparation, screening, refining and paper machine approach flow systems. With over 110 years of experience in manufacturing and supplying tailored solutions, we respond to the needs of our customers and help improve performance with trademarked advancements such as Finebar ultra low intensity refining, Powerwave energy efficient screening, POM wet end systems, and more.
