MEXICO CITY, Mexico – September 17, 2019 – John Guest® – a world-leading manufacturer of high-quality engineered push-fit fittings, valves and LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) tubing – will participate in Aquatech Mexico, the country’s largest annual water technology show, from September 3-5, 2019. A member of the Reliance Worldwide Corporation (RWC) family of brands, John Guest will showcase the latest in polypropylene fittings, shutoff valves and tubing equipment for potable water and traditional plumbing applications.
In conjunction with the John Guest display, StreamLabs®, another RWC brand, will exhibit the StreamLabs® Control, a WiFi-enabled smart water valve offering homeowners real-time water system monitoring, leak protection, automatic shutoff functionality and historical water usage reports via a convenient smartphone app.
The expo will take place at World Trade Center Mexico City, located at Montecito 38 Nápoles, 03810 Benito Juárez. The John Guest showcase will take place at stand 1009 of the exposition.
John Guest, a European leader in fluid system technology for decades, was acquired by RWC last year, signaling the brand’s entrance into the Americas. According to Maribel Pagan, director of marketing for John Guest, Aquatech Mexico will provide water equipment dealers, distributors, installers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in North, Central and South America an opportunity to become familiar with John Guest’s unique push-to-connect technology, particularly in the beverage and office coffee service (OCS) market.
“Central and South America show great promise for John Guest, which has long been a leader in tubing and plastic push-fit fittings for pure water, potable liquid and food quality applications in European markets,” said Pagan. “Aquatech Mexico is an opportunity to demonstrate to market leaders in the Americas what John Guest has to offer. As this market becomes more familiar with our products, we hope to be the first choice for buyers looking for reliable beverage dispensing solutions that save them time and labor.”
John Guest has an array of connectors, elbows, tees and dividers for a variety of water and air filtration applications. Standard LLDPE connections are made using John Guest’s unique, patented collet-locking system, which holds the tube firmly in place without deforming it or restricting flow.
Featured technology at Aquatech Mexico includes John Guest polypropylene and acetal fittings; the best-selling John Guest Speedfit™ Angle Stop Valve, which provides an extra line off of an existing stop; the John Guest Plastic Half Cartridge, which provides a quick, efficient and easy way of securing a Speedfit push-in connection into a wide variety of original equipment; and John Guest Twist and Lock male and elbow connectors.
