DRESSER: Announces Availability of Enhanced Valve Stocking Program

dresser logoDresser Consolidated® and Dresser Masoneilan® announced the availability in the Americas of the Dresser ValvFAST program, an innovative modular stocking system. The Dresser ValvFAST program empowers channel partners to quickly and efficiently serve end customers on immediate project or maintenance, repair and overhaul needs.

 

Through the ValvFAST program, Dresser channel partners have access to a series of kits that will allow them to rapidly assemble customized safety and control valves for service, sometimes as quickly as within 24 hours. On-site, on-demand service reduces valve downtime for the end customer and resulting in time and cost savings.

 

“At Dresser, we know that time is critical when it comes to replacing valves. That’s why we created our ValvFAST program, to ensure that our partners are equipped to serve their customers quickly, efficiently and in the time period they need,” said Gary Ostrowski, director of aftermarket product management for the Flow Technologies segment of Dresser Inc. “The ValvFAST program gives our partners more control over their inventory by providing the flexibility to assemble custom solutions rather than being bound by the products they have in stock. In the end, both our customers and channel partners win with ValvFAST.”

The ValvFAST program currently includes Dresser Masoneilan’s flagship globe valve, the 21000 series. The 21000 series serves many applications in operating environments around the world, and can now be built to order at Dresser certified locations. Dresser’s ValvFAST program will soon serve additional Dresser Consolidated and Dresser Masoneilan products, including the Camflex® universal control valve, the Dresser Masoneilan 41000 series and the V-Max control ball valve.
