Recently, Framatome signed a teaming agreement with AW Chesterton to become the exclusive distributor of its valve packing and mechanical seals to the majority of North America’s nuclear energy fleet. This agreement expands Framatome’s valve and actuator machinery solutions, as well as its fluid sealing product lines, further solidifying the company’s Nuclear Parts Center (NPC) as a one-stop shop for nuclear power plant needs.
Prior to use, all Chesterton valve packing and mechanical seals will be stored at Framatome’s NPC in Lynchburg, Virginia. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the NPC supplies ready-to-ship inventory and technical support, and has an online inquiry system, allowing customers to purchase items at their convenience.
This agreement continues Framatome and Chesterton’s long-standing relationship to support North American nuclear energy facilities. The initial term of the teaming agreement is three years.
