Directors; Colin Evans, Alan Forrester and Alan Wareing with their BVAA plaque.
The company’s main focus is on the stocking and distribution of a wide range of valves, actuators and ancillary pipeline equipment for both the industrial and marine markets. Formed in 2005, from the onset the Directors took the decision to concentrate on becoming a high-end quality supplier. The company’s core product group is developed and manufactured by LK Valves AB Sweden, and by entering into formal agreements with other European supply partners, it has built a diverse product portfolio.

Current agreements include; LK Valves, Wouter Witzel, El-OMatic, Damcos, Orbinox, Winel, IMI Truflo Marine, W&O Supply.

Alan Forrester, LKV&C Managing Director said “In recent years, our company has seen exceptional growth. This boost has not arrived by chance. We have signed a number of formal agreements with market leading European valve and actuator manufacturers and today we have the ability to supply full project sets of valves including automated systems.”

Many of the marine products stocked in Liverpool have Classification Society Type Approvals and the company has a hydraulic test facility allowing it to carry out individual pressure testing of valves, offering on-site testing witnessed by 3rd party inspectors on behalf of its customers. In the last decade of trading the company has been awarded many prestigious projects including a £1.5m UK contract and a £1m export contract.

Within the marine sector the company has recognised the need to service the growing number of ships built in the Far East now operating in and around UK waters and has invested £100k in a full range of Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) marine valves. This range is now held in the company’s warehouse in Liverpool for immediate dispatch for urgent ship repair and in-service fleet requirements.

The company’s purpose built Liverpool premises house both industrial and marine sales departments, warehousing, logistics and accounts, all of which are staffed by highly professional, reliable, dedicated and very experienced staff with a “can do” attitude, always making every effort to ensure they provide the best possible service to every customer. Its modern warehouse in Liverpool has in excess of £450K stock inventory, with access to back up stock held by its principal suppliers at their mainland European facilities.
