Advanced Valve Solutions Celebrates 10 years
In September Advanced Valve Solutions (UK) Limited celebrated its 10th birthday by achieving a key milestone in terms of market penetration. Rik Barry, UK Director, is proud of the company’s achievements. “We have now provided solutions and maintain products in more than half of the CCGT and CHP power stations in the UK. Even more important than market share, however, is the contribution that we have been privileged to make to the operation of the UK power generation industry. We have saved our customers millions of pounds by providing products that increase station performance whilst reducing operational and maintenance costs.”
The way that we do business is significant
Karel van Wijk, founder of Advanced Valve Solutions Dutch parent company believes that the way the company does business is a significant factor in the company’s year on year growth. “Our success has been built on strong relationships with our customers. We will visit a site and talk through any technical issues that may exist with regards to flow control. Once we do that we are confident that our technical experts will be able to find the best solution for the customer. All of our members of staff aim to ensure the success of the flow control project, rather than to generate sales. The majority of our successful projects have come in the power industry, controlling the flow of steam and high pressure steam although there have also been successes in the energy, oil & gas, nuclear and paper & pulp industries.”
Over the years AVS has gained intimate knowledge in the specification and selection of complete valve packages including control valves, isolation valves and made to measure process solutions.
