Rawson/Industrial Controls, an ERIKS North America company, announced that it is the exclusive distributor for Clarke Valve products to oil and gas and other industrial companies in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Texas, Oklahoma and the greater Gulf Coast region. The new partnership will enable Rawson/Industrial Controls to provide quick access to local product stock and expedited, high-level service support for Clarke Valve’s state-of-the-art Shutter Valve technology. Using innovative design principles derived from the aerospace industry, Clarke Valve’s proprietary Shutter Valve technology enables oil and gas companies to slash valve fugitive emissions. It also offers lower total cost of ownership, reduced footprint, lower weight and improved performance. Clarke Valve products are fully interchangeable with traditional globe control valves.
David Wilken, vice president of Rawson/Industrial Controls, said the partnership with Clarke Valve supports his company’s mission to deliver a full range of best-in-class solutions to industrial valve customers, including those with specialized requirements in the oil and gas market.
“We have an experienced staff of more than 40 control-valve specialists and they are thrilled with the opportunity to deliver Clarke Valve’s proven technology and expertise to customers in the Gulf Coast region, as well as Texas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and West Virginia," said Wilken. "Regardless of industry, our goal is to solve problems and help our customers run their businesses more efficiently and profitably. Clarke Valve has a track record for helping their customers do just that.”
Kyle Daniels, chief executive officer of Clarke Valve, said the alliance is key to providing the support that oil and gas customers demand.
“With installations at oil majors throughout and beyond the Gulf Coast, our goal is to make sure our customers are matched with top-notch sales and service professionals within driving distance of their plants,” Daniels said. “Rawson/Industrial Controls’ vast network will provide us with that capability, and we are confident that their experience and service infrastructure will help leverage our position in Texas, Oklahoma, the Gulf Coast and other markets."
