This provides the installer with a holistic view of how the individual components are designed to work in harmony as a complete system. As a prerequisite for all training, installers are required to take a Fueling System Safety certification course to educate them on potential site dangers and prepare them for work in hazardous environments.
“Franklin continues to introduce ways to deliver safety and protection of human health and the environment, while striving for the lowest total cost of ownership,” said Jay Walsh, Franklin Fueling Systems Executive Vice President. “This is another example of how we are leading the charge for safer installation practices that protect installers and reduce onsite exposure, which in turn provides station owners with reduced installation costs”

We wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the previously announced recall of some of our FLEX-ING™ brand hoses assembled with a swivel fitting on at least one end of the hose. In December of 2015, we contacted distributors to arrange the exchange of affected hoses. Through their efforts, we have already received the vast majority of affected hoses (both installed and not yet installed). We would like to thank our distributors for their tremendous cooperation in executing these exchanges.
This week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission released their official press release regarding this recall previously announced by Franklin Fueling Systems. Please click here for a direct link to this press release. This is NOT a new recall. All content in this press release refers to the recall announced in December of 2015.
In full cooperation with the CPSC, your continued efforts are necessary to locate and return for exchange or refund any hose /swivel assemblies meeting the criteria of this recall. Please click here for full details and contact Franklin Fueling Systems at 800-984-6266 with any questions.
Franklin Fueling Systems Brazil has consolidated its production activities with Franklin Electric Brazil at the end of 2015, and now has its headquarters in Joinville-SC. One of the objectives of this consolidation was the expansion of sales activities, as Franklin Electric has distribution centers in the cities of Joinville-SC, Cotia, SP, Recife-PE, Contagem, Minas Gerais, Teresina-PI, Belém-PA and Goiânia-GO.
According to the Commercial Manager of Franklin Fueling, Renato Finati, the consolidation with Franklin Electric Brazil (manufacturer of Schneider and Leão pumps) brings the great advantage of being close to customers, reducing the waiting time for materials and costs with transportation. Through the seven units of the line materials will be available UPP (pipes), FE Petro (Submersible Pumps), EBW (valves) and INCON (Measurement and Monitoring Equipment).
For North and South America excluding Brasil.
Europe, Middle East, Africa, Russia and India.
