Simrit’s technically advanced product portfolio offers high-quality sealing solutions that can be adapted to meet specific customer requirements. The extensive offering requires the company’s distributors to have the working knowledge of the products to most accurately recommend customer solutions. To foster this knowledge, the North American program was created to provide Preferred Distributors a variety of educational resources, global support and services.
