Colfax Corporation, a global leader in fluid-handling solutions for critical applications, announced it will open an East Coast Repair Center in Norfolk, Va., on May 24, 2010, as part of its growing Colfax Defense Solutions initiatives. With a dedicated, knowledgeable team, the center is capable of addressing a variety of pumping challenges.

Strategically located near the Naval Station Norfolk; Naval Amphibious Base, Little Creek; private shipyards; and Norfolk International Airport, the 3,600-square-foot Colfax facility will serve the US Navy and other defense customers. Repairs can be performed in-house, and experts can travel as needed, ensuring customers' needs are met as quickly as possible. Services provided will include onboard equipment inspections, overhauls, repairs, cleaning, testing, equipment transport and recording data into a ship's aftermarket history database.

"Because of our repair team's extensive experience, dedication and attention to customers' needs, the Colfax East Coast Repair Center is capable of servicing all COLFAX® products and those outside our portfolio," said Clay Kiefaber, president and CEO of Colfax. "We dedicate extensive time to the service and testing of all jobs that come through our repair centers, ensuring our products work reliably in the most demanding environments in which they are placed."

The East Coast Repair Center, part of the Colfax Defense Solutions organization, is the company's second service facility in the United States. The West Coast Repair Center, located in San Diego, Calif., opened in 2007, and has proven to be a success to both Colfax and the customers it serves. Looking forward, Colfax plans to add other strategically located repair centers throughout the country and the world to create better, faster and easier service for all customers.
