Equalizer International celebrates flange aligning and spreading success with Mexican distributor
David Gallegos Cortés receives World No. 1 Salesperson of the Equalizer Range from Ian McCormick

Equalizer International extended a warm reception to David Gallegos Cortés from Talleres Portátiles S.A. de C.V. based in Mexico during his visit in March, unlike the weather unfortunately. David was visiting Aberdeen not only to learn more about the range of tools but also to be presented with the Equalizer International award for World No. 1 Salesperson of the Equalizer Range by the company's Chairman and Managing Director, Ian McCormick for his outstanding contribution to sales during the period 2013/2014.


David, a firm Aberdeen FC supporter, learns the safe use of the tools by employing best practice methods while being shown how to operate Equalizer’s hydraulic flange aligning and hydraulic flange spreading tools by Equalizer’s Operations and Training Director, Bob Stephen. The FA4TM was employed to align the pipework while the SWi20/25TI was used to spread the two flanges apart on the large diameter, high pressure pipe in the training suite at the company’s HQ.


David also spent some time with Bob using the tools with the Mobile Demonstration Rig which demonstrates the full range of mechanical and hydraulic flange aligning and spreading tools and provides an excellent opportunity for hands on training to end users at customers’ sites throughout the UK. Since its introduction in 2013, the rig has been well received wherever it’s visited and works well to strengthen the company’s reputation as the global expert in flange aligning, flange spreading and flange pulling.
