Econosto UK - 25 Years sterling service, much more in the pipeline
In 2009 Econosto UK Ltd is celebrating 25 years in the valve supply business and it is shaping up to be a busy as well as challenging year.
From the company’s inception in 1984 as Ball Valves UK, it was clear that the market needed suppliers who could deliver on much faster lead times than had become the norm. Recognising the requirement to maintain a stock range which truly covered the needs of customers brought the company rapid success and it fast became one of the UK market leaders.
Acquisition by the Royal Econosto Group in 1998 further enhanced the product portfolio with own-brand and complementary products. This brought with it opportunities to offer all round solutions as well as the comprehensive valve product range. More recently the Econosto Group was bought by ERIKS Group, a move which opens up further opportunities for Econosto.
Econosto UK now works with some of the biggest names in industry on contracts across the globe. A dedicated Projects team works to ensure the smooth transition from enquiry to completion of orders varying from carefully timed delivery of straightforward stock items to production of complex special products for one-off applications. Experience in sectors ranging from marine and shipbuilding through to oil, energy and processing industries gives the team a unique insight into customer’s needs.
The company was also one of the first in its field to have an e-commerce site and this year a new version has been launched that reflects the increasing demand for purchasing via this route.
Clive Gamble, Managing Director of Econosto UK remains committed to development that benefits both the company and customers and had this to say about the coming year,
“We know that 2009 looks like being a tough one for many of our customers and we are continually alert to finding ways to help with this. Our product range is constantly under review to match the needs of the market and we aim to keep stock at levels which ensures that, wherever possible, downtime is reduced or eliminated for our customers.
After 25 years supplying valves we understand that the market continually develops and will always have challenges to overcome. It has always been our aim to provide the best service and our strengths lie in both the wide choice of valve products supplied - own brand alongside well-recognised premium brands - and the ability to provide sound technical advice and a range of services from actuation through to specially manufactured products.
The launch of our new e-commerce site is our latest development aimed at making the purchase of our products simpler and more accessible to all our customers.
