During June 2014, James Fanshawe, Area Sales Manager for Europe participated in a two day seminar and networking event organised by Permastore Distributor, Prostream in Devin, Bulgaria.

Prostream are a relatively newly appointed Bulgarian Distributor who specialise in the water sector in Bulgaria.

The seminar, which took place at the Persenk Hotel in Devin, a mountain town in southern Bulgaria, was attended by 105 delegates.  These 105 delegates were made up of Independent Water Treatment Project Designers and Representatives from Municipal Water Departments, Water Engineering Companies and the Central Bulgarian Water Association.

The seminar featured a presentation from James where he presented the numerous Features & Benefits of the PERMASTORE® Product and of Glass-Fused-to-Steel Tanks & Silos as it is common place to use concrete tanks in the Drinking water industry in Bulgaria.  James introduced the concept of the Modular Bolted Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks and explained the benefits of Glass-Fused-to-Steel over alternative concrete or epoxy containment solutions.

In addition to the Permastore presentation by Sales Manager James Fanshawe, all of the 105 delegates then travelled the short distance, by coach, to Prostream’s first PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel Drinking Water Tank in Smolyan.  The PERMASTORE® Modular Bolted Structure successfully provided a much needed water storage fix and the flat pack nature of the PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel solution was ideally suited to the remote mountain range around Smolyan.
