Broady: Expanding Global Presence
Broady Flow Control Limited, part of the global valve manufacturing group Valvitalia SpA, is now expanding its global presence by having in country stock to cover the North American and Australian markets.
Broady will be utilising the group’s impressive facilities in Edmonton, Alberta and exclusive Australian agent Flocontrol PTY Ltd, with its headquarters in Perth, Western Australia and branches in Brisbane and Melbourne.
Both locations will stock the entire range of the popular Broady series 3500 Safety Relief Valve in both dual certified Carbon Steel (LCC/WCB) and Stainless Steel (316L/316) Class #150 to #2500, along with a significant inventory of spare parts. Stock will be held in kit form and assembled and tested upon order entry by factory trained and certified individuals, using the latest Safety Valve testing equipment with full data logging capabilities.
These new stock holding facilities will be fully supported by the highly experienced Broady Engineering / Sales team based in Kingston upon Hull.
The Broady plant already offers the API526 / ASME VIII approved range of Safety Relief Valves on a 4 week fast track or 8 week standard lead-time. Shorter lead-times are available upon request. This fast track service has proven popular with both UK and International customers alike. A range of Nickel Aluminium Bronze and 22% CR Duplex Castings are also held on stock to compliment the standard product line.
In the coming months Broady will be rolling out a similar fast track program for their ASME approved Series 4000 Pilot Operated Safety Valves; eventually this inventory will also be extended to the Australian and Canadian plants.
Broady’s Sales Director / Deputy General Manager Paul Robinson commented: “The Broady brand is recognised worldwide for a quality product and exceptional customer service, and we already have an excellent reputation at being able to deliver both standard and non-standard manufactured to order valves - on very short deliveries. By having inventory not only at our UK headquarters, but also in these two strategic locations will help us better serve both our existing and new customers. Exiting new product lines are due to be added to our safety valve manufacturing range in the coming months. Announcements will be made in later editions.”
