Valvestock relocates and invests in new products
Published: 01 August, 2013
Valvestock, the specialist valve and actuator arm of Pipe Center, has moved to new premises and significantly expanded its offering following a major investment.
The new purpose-designed site at Fareham Industrial Park is equipped with state-of-the-art design, engineering and test facilities, plus a new training and demonstration centre.
Valvestock is now authorised by the manufacturers to build and modify Saunders diaphragm valves and Apollo ball valves, fully supported by the latest CAD/CAM systems. All work, including assembly and test of actuated valve packages, is carried out according to ISO 9001:2008 certified procedures.
The new offering includes next-day delivery on stocked items, and a 72-hour response on more complex technical quotations. In addition, a new Speedy Valve Service offers a 24-hour turnaround on assembled and activated valves.
The company recently held a highly successful open day for industrial contractors and clients, giving customers an opportunity to see the new facilities first hand.
Marcus Sampson, general manager of Valvestock, said: “Our key aim is to supply ‘on time’ and ‘on budget’, while adding value to our customers’ businesses. The move and related expansion in our offering represents a major investment by Pipe Center, to further improve the service we offer to customers.
“As a result, I believe we now offer an unrivalled package of products, services and support to the industry – covering valve and actuator requirements of the water and waste, power, process, manufacturing and oil and gas industries.”
