SUPPLIER PARTNERSHIPS – HOW IMPORTANT THEY ARE TO US

We strategically focus on supplier relationships to ensure we work more as long-term partners for our business.

We are constantly requesting from our suppliers quotes or technical clarifications same day or overnight, lowering of prices, improved deliveries, on-time deliveries, documentation, quality, etc.

 

This is where the relationship is so important and creates value for all parties, after 12 years in business, our supplier relationship model remains core to our global supply chain in-line with our Compliance and Business Ethics policies.

 

Fortunately, we have excellent suppliers providing quality components and actuators primarily from Italy, China, India and Malaysia.

DID YOU KNOW?

The stated design/operating temperature range of the valve datasheet will have a significant impact on the valve performance, longevity, and overall cost. 

 

It pays to consider carefully the real operating temperature range the valve will actually experience and then having the datasheet reflect the same.  Doing so, will allow the manufacturer to recommend superior materials at potentially lower costs. 

 

There is no such thing as a universal seal and a seal type that is suited for broader temperature ranges often come at the cost of overall seal performance. 

 

It is counterproductive specifying temperatures that the valve will not experience in its operating lifetime
