Nyco appoints Pexa as an official distributor

pexa_logo_new_200_200Nyco, formed in 1929 is a global leader in the development and manufacture of lubricants. With its HQ in France, Nyco is the only European producer of aviation lubricants and high performance ester fluids. Nyco’s product ranges include oils and greases for every aerospace application. Nyco’s worldwide network covers over 100 countries and Nyco has now expanded its network with the appointment of Pexa as a distributor.

Pexa, based in Halifax UK, is the leading distributor of surface finishing materials to the aerospace industry and is expanding its product range to include lubricants. Pexa is a fellow member with Nyco of the Aerochemicals Alliance (, therefore a partnership with Nyco was the obvious choice for Pexa’s manufacturing partner in the lubricant market.

Jim Rowbotham, Managing Director of Pexa said, “when we add a new product group to our range we always look for a global technology leader and a partner that can offer real differentiation combined with excellent service. Nyco fits the bill perfectly as they have excellent technologies and a huge range of approvals that our customers will appreciate. We look forward to discussing Nyco technologies with our aerospace customers and allowing them to benefit from our already excellent delivery and technical support services. We intend to keep a tailor made stock on hand at all times to service customers with rapid lead times and small quantities should they need them”.

For Nyco, Arnaud Radigue, Defence & Turbine Business Director, added, “Nyco wants to have the most comprehensive distribution network in the aerospace and defence industry. Adding Pexa as a distributor strengthens the network, adding a distributor with an excellent reputation for technical support and service. As fellow members of the Aerochemicals Alliance we have the opportunity to maintain excellent relations with Pexa and we look forward to working together for many years to come”.

Pexa expands into Spain

Pexa, the UK’s leading distributor of aerospace surface coatings and high tech materials is continuing its expansion into international markets with the opening of new premises in Spain.

Established in 2002, with UK offices based near Halifax, West Yorkshire, Pexa has expanded exponentially and now turns over in excess of £8m. Pexa created its first base in Europe in 2005 when it launched its French operation.

Spain was on the horizon, being one of Europe’s most important aerospace economies and one of Airbus’ home manufacturing markets. Growth in the aerospace industry, particularly in production of commercial aircraft is forecast to increase by 25% by 2023* and to support the subsequent demand for associated products, dedicated facilities in Spain became a high priority.

The new Spanish office has not only created new employment, but the forecast uplift in sales has also increased employment opportunities at its UK headquarters.

Arantxa Sanchez de Rivera has been appointed as its Sales Executive for Spain based in Madrid but working from Pexa’s business address in Barcelona. She will be supported by Pexa’s multi-lingual customer services team in the UK. Arantxa will be responsible for business development throughout Spain. Arantxa has worked for Boeing in Spain for the last 3 years and brings significant experience of the aerospace industry.

With dedicated facilities in the UK, France and now Spain, Pexa is positioned to not only expand further into Europe, but to enhance its excellent customer service from ground level across its entire international operations.

Arantxa said “I am very pleased to be joining Pexa at such an exciting time in the company’s development. I can’t wait to meet Pexa’s customers throughout Spain and to see how we can help them to accomplish their objectives”.

Jim Rowbotham, Pexa MD commented, “we are really looking forward to building relationships with our customers in Spain, we have exported to Spain for several years but setting up our own operation there will offer our customers an excellent service and we are sure they will respond to that by choosing Pexa for their surface technology products. We are the acknowledged experts in paints and related surface coatings and we know that we can offer an unrivalled level of service and support. That is why major brands like AkzoNobel choose Pexa as their preferred distribution partner”.”

In line with Pexa’s international growth, the use of country specific domains has become ever more complicated. Therefore Pexa has now acquired the global domain providing a unified and simple international address for all of its online communications.
