Severn Glocon Group: Valve engineering firm streamlines global positioning in readiness for growth and development

British valve engineering firm Severn Glocon Group is consolidating its global network of individually branded businesses, all of which will now operate under the simplified ‘Severn’ brand name.

As Severn enters the next phase of its ambitious five-year growth plan, the new identity better reflects its position as a single source of complete valve solutions for the oil and gas market.

The Severn Glocon and Severn Unival brands, which have been associated with valve projects and aftermarket valve engineering for decades, have been rebranded as Severn. The same is true of Severn Valve Solutions, which focuses on localised aftermarket support in key markets including Iraq and Kazakhstan. Severn Glocon Group’s small bore subsea valve business LB Bentley has been repositioned as ‘Bentley, a Severn company’.

It’s 12 months since Severn received investment from Blue Water Energy to accelerate new growth and development. Since then, the business has strengthened and extended its senior management team whilst implementing new measures to enhance performance. CEO Colin Findlay says the rebrand is the natural next step.

“Over the past year we’ve introduced modern ways of working which foster better collaboration across our global entities to improve customer outcomes and experiences,” Findlay explains. “We’ve taken a more joined-up approach that facilitates knowledge sharing for better consistency in technical excellence and operational best practice. Creating a single, shared brand identity reinforces these developments and gives us a solid foundation for future growth.”

Despite the ongoing challenges posed by Covid-19, Findlay says Severn ended 2020 in good shape financially with a strong order book for 2021. He’s now focused on building the business and new developments are on the horizon.

“We’re all set to take Severn to new heights,” says Findlay. “This will involve extending the depth and breadth of our existing internal capabilities. There are exciting times ahead.”

Severn has a 60 year heritage in engineered valve products and services for the oil and gas sector. It has strong reputation for high quality products that can handle the most arduous severe and critical service valve applications in challenging operational environments.
