Technology Open Day Gets the Ball Rolling for Valves

EnerMech’s valve division recently held a successful valve technology day to celebrate the launch of the re-designed and upgraded EnerMech LG Ball Valve, and provide customers with an insight into the Company’s valve servicing capability.

More than 80 people attended the event, which was held at EnerMech’s international headquarters in Aberdeen on the 6th of November.

A PPE free exhibition area was set up in the valve workshop which included demonstrations of valve technologies and stands from key suppliers.

A series of technical presentations ran throughout the day with topics ranging from Effective Ball Valve Design, presented by UK Valves General Manager Bob Stephen (pictured above), to Valve Project Commercial Challenges and Material Selection Processes.

The event was the first of its kind for EnerMech, with other business areas soon to follow suit. Amongst those who spoke highly about the event were graduate engineers who enjoyed the chance to learn more about the valve industry.

EnerMech Valves Director Steve Abel said: “I can’t overstate how pleased I am with the success of this event. I felt a great sense of pride while showing our clients around the workshop and explaining our capabilities. I had some very positive discussions with customers who seemed relieved that they were being presented with a credible alternative to their usual valve service provider. I am certain this will generate a stepped increase in business for all three of our value revenue streams.”

European Regional Director Stuart Smith said: “This is the first time any EnerMech business area has put on a technology day like this, and on such a large scale. The event was an accomplishment for all involved. Staff from across the business came together to help make this a great day and it was a wonderful example of how well different teams at EnerMech can work together for success.”
