PJ Valves (PJV), the specialist manufacturer and supplier of valves to the global energy industry, has launched a new piping business, PJ Piping (PJP). Located in Houston, Texas, the company – operating as part of the PJ Group – will supply specialist pipe fittings, flanges and other piping components to the oil and gas, petrochemical and desalination sectors.
PJP will be led by a core team of Daniel Composto and James Short. Daniel has more than eight years’ experience in piping materials – launching and running the US operations for a global pipe supplier. James joins from PJV where he has spent 11 years working between Europe and North America managing its sales operations.
Dan Munro, managing director and owner of PJV says: “This launch is important to our overall growth strategy. We can now offer clients a dynamic and complete solution to their valve and piping needs by integrating our two business offerings. We’re excited to harness our experience at PJV to provide operators with a solution that will save them time during the procurement process.”
PJV has launched the company in response to demand in the market for a simplified pipe, valves and fittings (PVF) supplier process. PJP will supply specialised and standard items including heavy wall pipe and exotic grades of pipe and is currently targeting repair and maintenance projects in the Americas.
Daniel Composto, managing director at PJP adds: “We’re delighted to be launching this new business to the oil and gas, petrochemical and desalination sectors. We can offer a truly specialist service to operators and engineering and procurement contractors, and will always go the extra mile to make sure that we can provide the right solution at the right time.”
