The Puzzle Solved

The AC Valve Alliance Group is made up of six privately owned, individual companies, each of which is an expert in their own field and built together as jigsaw pieces to form the complete picture.

From the early days, over twenty years ago supplying a range of European manufactured ball valves into the UK market from Spain and Italy to a bespoke 35,000 sq. ft. facility in the heart of the Midlands, the AC Valve Alliance Group has shown that we can grow and develop with the ever-changing needs and challenges of today’s industries.

The Group holds a stock range of valves and actuators worth over £4 million, which is one of the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in Europe. We have formed partnerships with our main suppliers, Pekos ball valves, Nacional safety relief valves, Starline ball valves, Air Torque actuators, Perar trunnion mounted ball valves, Plastrulon PFA lined ball valves, Galli and Cassina plug valves and most recently Sammi line blinds. These unique partnerships ensure that we are always able to supply only the very best and most current products within a quick delivery time.

The group also has access to a wide range of complementary products such as it’s association with Zwick GmbH high performance butterfly valves and other products such as gate, globe and check valves which allows us to provide complete and complex valve packages along with the demands for associated documentation, project management, inspection and testing requirements.

Coupled to this extensive stock offering we operate a comprehensive valve actuation centre, providing automation solutions tailored to customers’ unique and individual requirements. We also aim to deliver ‘off the shelf packages’ utilising our extensive stock range of actuators, mounting kits, solenoids, switch-boxes and control panels that fully complement our in-house range of valves.

To meet the growing demand for pipe skid assemblies, incorporating valves, actuation, instrumentation and other process equipment, we can competitively produce, in house, skid mounted packages, providing completed mechanical and electrical systems ready to be installed on site. We can build to a client’s own design or, using the latest 3D modelling software, produce our own compact and economic solutions working from P&IDs. Operating under the latest codes and regulations, the customer is assured that the finished product meets the required standards for the final destination.

The jigsaw is completed by our technical centre which fulfils the industry demand for more stringent testing even going as far as offering a Fire Test facility. We have invested heavily in this area to provide a more flexible and rapid response for a wide range of engineering services as well as the need for modification of stock valves for fast track delivery. This sets us aside as we can quickly satisfy specific customer requirements within our own facility under our own quality control which is continually monitored.

All of this is held together by our people and this is where the AC Valve Alliance ethos of product specialist roles comes into its own. Employing engineers and sales people with countless years of product specific experience along with the commercial, technical and after sales support of our long-standing partnerships gives our customers both large and small peace of mind when its most needed. The AC Valve Alliance Group is made up of six privately owned, individual companies, each of which is an expert in their own field and built together as jigsaw pieces to form the complete picture.
