Based on its recent analysis of the North America liquid/solid separation technology market, Frost & Sullivan has recognized Huber Technology, Inc. with the 2018 North America Product Line Strategy Leadership Award.
“Capitalizing on growth opportunities, Huber is investing in a new manufacturing facility and regional campus in North Carolina to support future operations and deliver an enhanced product line developed specifically to address the unique market needs in North America,” said Seth Cutler, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “North Carolina, with competitive tax rates and a labour force populated by graduates from local engineering universities, is an attractive manufacturing location. It will mitigate the logistic challenges inherent in importing products as well as enable the company to pursue new product development activities that are relevant to the region.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that develops a comprehensive product line that caters to the breadth of the market it serves. The award recognizes the extent to which the product line meets customer base demands, and the overall impact it has in terms of customer value and increased market share.
“Apart from its superior portfolio, Huber offers customer-centric service and fosters long-term relationships with clients. It partners with customers from the initial concept stage to project fulfillment and after-sales service stages. Furthermore, it does not commit to a product idea unless there is a proven customer need for it,” noted Cutler. “Overall, due to its reputable brand, commitment to high-quality solutions, comprehensive portfolio, superior customer-centric service, and a robust growth strategy, Huber Technology richly deserves the Frost & Sullivan 2018 Product Line Strategy Leadership Award.”
For instance, in response to the current surge in membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology in North America, Huber created solutions that protected MBRs that were vulnerable to fouling.
Huber USA collaborated with its experienced teams in Germany and the United Kingdom to come up with reliable criteria to apply two millimetre and one mm Rotamat MBR screening solutions – eventually, coming to own the largest installed base of reliable screen technology with the ability to protect all major brands of MBR.
Some of Huber’s more popular products are the MAX family of screens, which include Rotamat, EscaMAX, RakeMAX, CurveMAX, CenterMAX, and the range of step screens as well as different sizes and variations of its Wash Press WAP for washing screenings.
