Delivering local provision is an increasing challenge for major operators and contractors who are committed to developing local communities through skills, knowledge, and supply chain growth. That’s why we’ve continued to adapt our business to support our customer requirements, investing in local services as an extension of our integrated manufacturing facility in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
As a leading valve supplier to some of the world’s largest operators, we have been bringing our technology and knowledge closer to the customer and the communities they operate in. Adopting a collaborative approach to local development we have partnered with numerous companies to develop fit for purpose facilities supporting projects in key development regions.
We have been providing on site service provision for a number of years for customers based around the world. Increasing our local presence bolsters this service offering, becoming even closer to our customers providing thorough and responsive support. Reducing down time for maintenance, repairs and inspection, the closeness of valve professionals can reduce waste, risk, and time, whilst simultaneously transferring specialist knowledge to local people.
Committed to developing a local workforce, we have been involved in a number of regional development programmes to create longevity for local communities. The programmes have been tried and tested with students from various countries including Brazil, India and Nigeria, spending an extended period at our facility to become local valve experts. Through our extensive record of training, we can deliver structured training programmes which cover the full scope of valve design, manufacturing, testing, installation, commissioning, maintenance and repair.

Through the sharing of best practice in valve engineering, we can provide on-site training and development. These learning and development programmes not only transfer knowledge but also create a platform to develop closer working relationships between the supply chain, contractors and operators. Through an understanding of cultural, legal and environmental requirements, we can work more closely with our customers to build specifications and products that will ultimately improve technology, efficiency, and reliability.
