OUR STORY

MIR VALVE was founded by Stasi Prandalos; back in January 2006, he had the vision to bring Italian technology, manufacturing to European standards, creating a worldclass ball and gate valve manufacturer with the HQ and plant in Kuala Lumpur. He had already been living in Malaysia for 15 years working in the oil and gas sector managing the Asia Pacific region and had seen Malaysia turn into a booming regional hub.

His focus was to manage the customers in Asia-Pacific and progressively go global, ensuring a higher level of service, commitment and support that would differentiate us from all other European manufacturers. His reason not to be in Italy was simply because there were 54 existing ball and gate valve manufacturers, to be no.55 offered no added value, no benefit or excitement to the market or to our customers. From this point onwards, he worked evenings and weekends, compiling the business plan which he completed in June 2007. The task then was to hit the road and pitch to investors to raise the seed capital, which he successfully achieved and started to build the company, commencing 1st of August 2007. This has been a hugely successful strategy for us having seen our company grow to where we are today as an established brand, active in over 30 markets worldwide.
