Burckhardt of Switzerland, a third-generation family business, is expanding its North Ameircan sales, service and distrubtion network for its industry-leading line of perforating machinery. This expansion will allow the company to offer enhanced support to existing customers while also providing locally available sales specialists to a wider range of industries and areas.

The new organizational structure includes Teknoweb NA, Loganville, GA who will be the master distributors of parts stocking and service. Teknoweb will be assisted by Wending Associates in the mid-Atlantic region; Darrel Johnson and Associates in the mid-west, ODT Global in New England, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia and New York and Shurtz Enterprises in California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.
 
Burckhardt is already well known in the U.S. for its quality perforating equipment. Company president Teddy Burckhardt says, “With our strong local presence, we are now better positioned in the U.S. market and can reach closer to the customers. A central distribution and support center with the experienced resources of Teknoweb NA combined with our veteran team of representative organizations gives us the best possible fit and ensures that we stay on the leading edge of the market.”

Adding the line of Burckhardt perforating machinery adds additional value to Teknoweb’s current product and service offerings. “Our experience with precision converting equipment matches up perfectly with Burckhardt’s products,” says Carl Cucuzza, president of Teknoweb NA. “Partnering with them allows us to use our knowledge of supporting technically-advanced equipment to the benefit of Burckhardt’s current and prospective customers in the U.S.”
