Distributor Spotlight: Kaiser‑Soze
Kaiser Soze, SL was founded in 2000 and has extensive experience in the automotive, industrial and maritime markets in Spain and Portugal. In 2008, Kaiser Soze partnered with Murphy by Enovation Controls to begin integrating Murphy products into its business and the maintenance division was spun off from the company.
We spoke to Kaiser Soze’s CEO, Cristóbal Celaya, to find out more about the company and how his team uses their experience and expertise to deliver systems solutions to their clients.

Why do you tell your customers to use Murphy products?
Cristobal: Our main goal is to focus on finding the right solutions and products for our customers. Murphy products have a “name” and a solid reputation in our market and country which make them a good fit for our customers and their applications.

What is the most interesting use of Murphy products that you have seen from a customer?
Cristobal: One of the most interesting uses we have seen of a Murphy product was a PowerCore® MPC-10 used as an engine panel in the marine market. We saw this particular use because of the high IP rating and a futureproof solution when the engines change from mechanical to electronic. The high quality and ruggedness of the MPC-10 made it perfectly suited to the tough marine environment.
