British-based manufacturer Oliver Valves, a supplier of valves to global energy companies, has launched a new sales office in Houston, Texas. The company has traded in the US market for over 20 years, and has built a multi-million dollar turnover business in the territory. The new office will accommodate a sales team supporting Oliver Valves’ customers in the region, working alongside the firm’s distribution partner, Texas-based AWC. The facility will also allow the company to host training events for customers and sales engineers. The launch coincides with the company’s US operation being awarded a USD 1 million contract by AMEC to supply topside double block and bleed valves for the Kizomba Satellites project on Block 51, offshore Angola.
