Who are BVAA? What does BVAA do?

Possibly the two most asked questions about the British Valve and Actuator Association (BVAA). When we respond, often a lengthy process to describe it all, the reaction is generally along the lines of ‘Wow! I didn’t realise you did all that!’ So, briefly, what are the answers?

Who we are

BVAA is the only organisation that represents all the main sectors in the UK valve industry; namely manufacturers, distributors, repairers and suppliers of valves, actuators and related products and services.
