Oct 29, 2018
Companies partner to sell and distribute ball valves, steam traps and relief valves
Great Western Valve is pleased to announce the signing of an Authorized Distributor Agreement with ARI-Armaturen. In 2016, Great Western Valve became an ARI-Armaturen authorized service center for the ARI-REYCO® line of full-nozzle safety relief valves.  Over the years, the two companies have worked closely together for both sales and service, and customers have responded favorably.
As a result of the wide customer acceptance of ARI-REYCO® safety relief valves, demand and sales for the product has been steadily growing.  As a result, the companies decided to further their relationship through a formal Distributor Agreement and to include additional ARI-Armaturen products.  The terms of the agreement make Great Western Valve the largest distributor of ARI-Armaturen’s CONA® (steam traps), FABA® (globe valves), STEVI® (control valves), and REYCO® (relief valve) products for the Texas Gulf Coast region.
“We have a wide range of highly engineered and competitive products across our portfolio”, said Andy Stewart, North American General Manager & Director of Sales at ARI-Armaturen. “We are experiencing great traction and growth here in the USA, and we are delighted to partner with a company like Great Western Valve who has such a respected and expansive customer base with multiple sales and service centers to support our mutual customers”.
“Our customers love our quick response times and customer service”, said Jim Reilly, President & CEO at Great Western Valve.  “Because ARI-Armaturen’s North American manufacturing, assembly, and distribution center is here in the Houston area, we have the unique opportunity to quickly deliver high quality products at price point that saves our customers time and money”.
Great Western Valve’s PSV Division services all makes and models of safety relief valves, as well as conservation/vacuum tank vents and pressure gauges.  Always focusing on what is best for the customer, Great Western Valve looks first to repair customers’ valves.  In the event a valve is not economically repairable, the company will offer ARI-REYCO® as a new replacement.  Great Western Valve will also continue to supply same-kind replacements upon customer request.
