CGIS is a global supplier of high-performance valves, controls and automation. Having originated in Canada 40 years ago, the company has expanded its reach through additional locations in Canada, as well as the U.S. and Australia. CGIS works with engineering, mining and mineral processing, oil and gas, energy, power, pulp and paper, chemical, and water and wastewater companies across six continents.
CGIS is a recognized leader in the application of severe service valves. Ross Waters, CGIS chairman, spoke about SSVs during a well-received session at VMA's recent Valve Forum. His presentation included information about the development of a new MSS standard on SSVs.
As for why CGIS chose to join VMA, Ross explained: "It's time to give back to the industry that we have enjoyed being in for over 40 years. There have been a lot of changes that have occurred in those four decades, and we want to be part of the improvements that are needed. Information and education are the vehicles where CGIS wants to contribute, and the VMA is the right place to distribute that knowledge."
CGIS's main facility is located in Vancouver, British Columbia. For more information, visit the company website at www.cgis.ca.
