Flowserve Certified By Saudi Aramco
Flowserve announces certification to supply control valves to Saudi Aramco
Flowserve Corporation recently announced that its manufacturing plant in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, operated by Flowserve Abahsain Flow Control Company Ltd. (FLS/ABA), has been certified by Saudi Aramco for the supply of control valves. FLS/ABA is a joint venture of Flowserve and S&A Abahsain Co. Ltd.
The certification by Saudi Aramco allows valves produced by FLS/ ABA at the Dammam plant, including Flowserve Valtek globe, ball, plug, butterfly and control valves for severe service, to be sold to Saudi Aramco. Flowserve and S&A Abahsain opened the joint venture Dammam manufacturing facility in the summer of 2010.
“Our continued investment in this joint venture underscores our commitment to the localization of our products and services to fit the needs of customers in Saudi Arabia,” said Tom Pajonas, president, Flowserve Flow Control Division. “This certification by Saudi Aramco highlights our ability to manufacture high quality products and aftermarket solutions over the long-term life cycle of these plants.”
“This certification is a first step towards qualifying a number of Flowserve Flow Control valve and actuation products,” said Shaukat Sheikh, director of Abahsain Group. “With this certification, we will not only serve regional markets, but create long-term local Saudi job opportunities and critical technology transfer.”
FLS/ABA was formed early in 2009 to supply valves to the oil and gas, petrochemical, power and water industries. The Dammam manufacturing plant opened in the summer of 2010 and is a state-of-the-art, 55,000 square foot facility with capabilities for component machining, valve assembly, and testing. The Dammam plant also includes a fully equipped Quick Response Center (QRC) to provide service and repair support to Saudibased customers. The QRC employs qualified valve technicians who perform valve repair and troubleshooting either in the facility or at the customer’s site. The QRC maintains an inventory of valves and spare parts, which minimizes delivery lead times for customers.
