Building on 43 years of experience into the next phase of HSP Valves’ journey

Strong relationships with manufacturers, solid engineering skills and a strong emphasis on customer service have increased sales for HSP Valves, a leading supplier of automation and valves to the energy sector. Here, HSP Managing Director, Derrick
Mackenzie, discusses why he believes this approach will contribute to continued success in the domestic and international markets.

“HSP Valves is much more than just a supply organisation. The company provides a complete service for the supply of actuated and manual valves to end users, contractors, FPSO operators, module suppliers and distributors.

For 43 years, we have been supplying actuated, and manual valves to clients in all corners of the World and have built a reputation for the delivery of the most complex packages from API 10K Riser ESDV for an FPSO operator in Southeast Asia to Gas over Oil Actuated Welded Body Ball Valves with 5m high extensions for a Middle East Energy Operator.

For clients, our technical understanding, responsiveness, and close connections with manufacturers have cemented our role as a trusted technical partner and advisor to the energy sector. These attributes have translated to a significant upturn in sales for the business, with clients relying on our problem-solving credentials to fulfil their critical equipment needs during this challenging period for the industry.

HSP moved into the next phase in its history. Earlier this year, the senior management team acquired the HSP UK and Edgen Murray valve businesses across Eastern Hemisphere, bringing an expanded footprint of facilities under the HSP Group. The HSP Group now includes entities in Abu Dhabi, Jebel Ali Free Zone in the UAE and Doha, Qatar.”

Richard Griffin, Director of Sales, commented: "Our strengthened Valve Division in Dubai is a testament to our commitment to our clients and better serve their needs. Every day we hear from companies interested in our products and services. Our 120,000 sqft site in the Jebel Ali Free Zone includes offices, a yard with 10t lifting capacity and our Valve and Automation facility.

As our principal Middle East facility,where our experienced sales andproject management teams are based, supporting clients across the Middle East region and Southeast Asia. Our existing Doha and Abu Dhabi entities complement one another to serve our customers locally.

Our success has come about through strong attention to detail and a sense of urgency from our best-in-class staff. In recent years we have taken the team from two to fifteen, which is a testament to our commitment to serving our clients locally and providing the best-in-class service, and we will continue to grow and invest locally.”

"Taking the business back into private ownership has boosted HSP's on-theground resources and strengthened our position in key international markets," says HSP Managing Director Derrick Mackenzie.

"Our absolute focus on customeroriented service has not changed. Rather, these are about bringing our strong technical understanding, consultancy and relationships with manufacturers to new customers in new and expanding markets.”
