2020 is already shaping up to be one of the most successful years for Oliver Valves in their 40-year history. In February, the globally successful valve manufacturing company beat stiff competition to win an incredible order in excess of £10 million for a major international EPC company based in the Middle East. The order was for an excess of 1,200 Double Block and Bleed valves which are to be installed in the Persian Gulf (Arabian Gulf).
This historic order for the Oliver Family of Companies will run for approximately one year, with deliveries being gradually sent to the Middle East, until completion in February 2021. Richard Bedford, Sales Director at Oliver Valves, states “this award is the culmination of months of hard work from the Sales, Engineering, Purchasing and Finance teams”. He continues by thanking all the individuals involved for their “commitment and hard work.”
Colm Kane, Managing Director of the Oliver Family of Companies, was quick to credit the team at Oliver’s as one of the main reasons for its success. He says “Our motto of ‘it can be done’ runs true within every department in the organisation,” and an order this big proves that. Colm continues that this order is supporting the company’s ‘growth strategy’ as they are heading for an impressive ‘40% increase in business from last year’s financial figures’.
With over 350 employees, 100 of whom have each given over 10 years’ service to the company and 3 of them reaching 35 years this year, just shows how loyal and committed the Oliver team is to making the business a success.
Oliver Valves is growing at a rapid rate and with continued hard work and commitment will see many more orders like this in the future.
