CVS Appointed Fisher Approved Service Provider
The company was audited by Bob Burndred, Emerson’s Manager for Fisher Repair Associates Europe and after conducting a thorough audit of the facilities CVS was awarded FASP status. As part of this new status CVS will be able to train its engineers in Cernay, France. This will give CVS access to Fisher/Emerson technology to ensure FM and CSA marks remain valid.
CVS has always been steadfast about client service but now its standards will improve significantly with more access to Fisher spares and historical information to guarantee that repairs are completed to manufacturers’ standards.
Bob Burndred said “with CVS we can be very confident that the valves are repaired to our exacting specification and returned to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) standards. This is all part of our commitment to quality for platform operators to improve process efficiency and help sustain the best return on investment in plant.”
Mick Beavers Managing Director of CVS responded by saying that “we have worked hard over the last 2 years to gain the confidence of Fisher and Emerson. This puts us in a strong position to work more closely with all of the North Sea operators. I am proud of the team that we have at CVS and this deal means that there is some exciting times ahead as we continue to grow. Having the support of Emerson means that we are able to demonstrate a broader scope of capabilities to all of our clients. We will be working closely with Fisher to ensure that not only we get good service from them but we become a true support arm for Fisher to serve their existing clients on any issues that may arise with their products.”
Mick added “I have been involved with Emerson for a number of years and it was always in my plan to work closely with them although our approval has come much sooner than I expected. As our relationship grows with Fisher I am sure both companies will find the partnership extremely beneficial. We will both be able to give clients the extra service that is desperately needed in an ageing industry where valve reliability is key to safety and production for all operators. We want to deliver to the highest standard of service as possible for the client and continue to expand our capability both onshore and offshore with valve diagnostics and reliability.”
In the same month Emerson reviewed CVS for FASP status, the company went through a tough extension audit and surveillance visit from ISOQAR for ISO9001:2008.
The company passed with flying colours and the quality system is fully installed in all areas of the business from valve repair, supply and modification to all its internal systems and procedures. All of CVS’ systems are electronic and the companies bespoke internal system CVS Manager was also passed by ISOQAR. The company is taking quality very seriously and has done since it was formed in 2009, with this in mind CVS have applied for further extensions to the quality system and should announce another major certificate within the next six months.
