In the four years since Albion Valves launched their range of stainless steel fittings demand has gone from strength to strength. MEPCA found out more.
Albion Valves, a leading supplier of valves to the industrial and building services markets, was one of the first companies in the UK to introduce a range of stainless steel fittings compliant with the ISO 4144 Standard, which specifies the pressure, temperature ratings and dimensions of this product group.
Today, four years after introducing the line, Albion’s sales team is reporting that stainless steel fittings are growing in popularity and becoming one of the best-selling product ranges.
Historically, there has been huge variability in quality and pricing for this product sector, often resulting in products being specified that were either not fit for purpose, non-compliant or over priced for certain applications. As such, Albion fully supports the industry standard and the focus it brings to quality in this sector.
Les Littlewood, Albion Valves Sales Director, commented: “It is encouraging to see the growth in this product range and that distributors are prioritising compliancy when specifying for their installations.
“At Albion we endeavor to stock a high performance range of products that are safe, reliable and excellent quality. We aim to provide our customers with complete confidence and peace of mind, by supplying products that both increase productivity and minimize waste and errors.
“As such we welcome the ISO Standard and continue to encourage our distributors to benefit from the enhanced quality controls in this sector.”
Albion’s range of stainless steel fittings features a wide variety of different products available in sizes from 1/8” – 4” offering customers an extensive choice, alongside the optimum balance of quality, performance and price.
Albion currently stocks around 5000 lines of industrial products, suitable for applications predominantly within the process, water and HVAC industries.
