Martin Hunt, a specialist in actuation valve control systems, has recently been appointed as the new Group General Manager for Hydra-Valve Ltd (HVL), a rapidly expanding valve and pipeline solutions company, based in Derby.

With 25 years’ experience in the water, hydrocarbon and energy industries, he brings a wide experience spanning strategic growth, project sales, engineering, and lean operations, as well as managing bottom line profitability. Martin Hunt is looking forward to the challenges involved in helping to run this innovative company.

Martin commented “OFWAT have laid a challenge to the utilities that mean they have to react by seeking a step change in their approach to asset performance, operating costs and protection of the environment. HVL has a proven track record with continuous development of innovative techniques to meet these requirements, and timely solution delivery to the utilities so they are ‘Always On’. The exciting challenge for me is guiding the development and growth of our team of highly motivated and experienced engineers to enhance our offer to the market, and to drive through some real benefits to our customer base.”
