Since March when Control Valve Solutions’ Sales Manager Mac Stevenson started, the company has expanded rapidly as it positions itself as a key player in valve service, repair and management for the Oil & Gas sector. The company is scoring every time with more contracts, bigger premises and a larger team.

One of the most pivotal events was the success of the Offshore Europe (OE11) exhibition leading to a significant increase in enquiries and CVS securing contracts with three major operators. CVS’s company mascot Valve Tech Vinnie also made his first public appearance at OE11 and was a big hit with visitors to the CVS stand.

As CVS’s expansion roll continues the company has brought forward further expansion plans in terms of its workshop facilities and is strengthening its engineering, sales and project management teams.

Along with an increase in business and employees over the last 12 months, CVS has increased the size of its workshop facilities at Link Street and it is not expected to be too long before the company has to move into larger premises.

A step change in the structure of the company is coming to fruition earlier than planned as Managing Director Mick Beavers will now spend even more time working on the business and not so much in it.

The engineering workshop team is now stronger with the recruitment of another two members of staff, Keith Reid, Senior Isolation Valve Engineer and Tim Gardiner, Trainee Valve Engineer.

The breadth of skills and experience that the engineering team can now offer is exceptional. The team is headed up by Workshop Supervisor Graham Shewan who has worked in the control valve industry for over 30 years. This experience has enabled some trainees to fast track through CVS’s Training Programme. One in particular Jonathan Gale, Valve Engineer retrained completely and after 2 years he will soon be training new trainees.

To improve on its already high level of client service a new role has been established at CVS as a bridge between sales and engineering. Nathan Gardiner has joined CVS as Internal Sales Engineer as part of a growing sales team led by Mac Stevenson, Sales Manager.

Commenting on his new role Nathan said: “Although I only started at CVS in October I have been more than impressed by the pure dedication and drive of the whole team to move this high growth business forward and at the same time improve service levels.”

Sales Manager Mac Stevenson’s responded to Nathan’s appointment by saying: “I am delighted to welcome Nathan to CVS. He has a solid background in sales and client relationship building and he will add value for all our clients in offering bespoke valve solutions. He has a great combination of skills gained in the Oil & Gas industry with hands-on experience in internal sales, field support and technical engineering roles that will further improve delivery times for CVS’s clients.”

CVS’s Managing Director Mick Beavers said: “Nathan has already made a significant impact on the business which has enabled me to concentrate on setting up a dedicated project team. He demonstrated from the very outset that he has the drive and determination to give the client exactly what has been specified and within the expected timescales. This ethos is a perfect fit with Control Valve Solutions.”

Mick Beavers added: “I know I am very privileged to be in a position where we can attract good quality people to a relatively new business. The next milestone in our recruitment drive is to expand our project management team and as final interviews have concluded I am looking forward to welcoming a new Project Engineer who will take some responsibility for our rapid increase in project work.”
