"We also have at our disposal worldwide resources, including more than 2,000 associates, engineering professionals and technical facilities in Colfax offices in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region. Whether our customers are focused on capacity expansion projects, reducing operating costs of current installations, meeting environmental requirements or moving crude oil of varying viscosities, the Colfax team in the Middle East can provide a complete portfolio of pump technologies, application expertise and the brands that customers can count on for years of service in the harshest environments."
