By Jenny Lescohier27 January 2020
European designer and manufacturer of pumping systems and equipment, Valme, will launch its Valme North America branch with a production plant in Franksville, WI in the US.
The launch is part of a global expansion strategy, part of which is to be closer to the company’s American clientele and to meet growing demand for fast and efficient service.
The Valme North America stand will be exhibiting various products specifically for the US market at World of Concrete, February 4-7 in Las Vegas, US. Equipment such as standard and double-layer pipes, chrome carbide elbows and rubber hoses as well as HD couplings, collars and gaskets, will be on display, showcasing Valme’s recent range expansion, including not only the manufacturing of pipes but also a supply of complete concrete pumping and distribution systems.
New arrivals include two gate valves with blades made from especially wear-resistant materials, as well as a fully dismantlable 1.5” and 2” shotcrete nozzle (DN38 and DN50 respectively). In addition, Valme North America will be unveiling its line of DN125 double-layer LLN 2.5+2, LLT 3+1.5 and LLH 5+3 pipes and DN125 reinforced chromium carbide bends in 7 and 12mm thicknesses.
“Valme has invested a great deal in increasing its production capabilities and pursuing technological innovation,” says Davide Cipolla, sole director of Valme. “The American market holds great potential for us, and we are therefore wholeheartedly embracing new opportunities in this area.”
