Zahroof Valves Inc. (ZVI) has signed Australia’s Drivetrain Power and Propulsion, a subsidiary of Engenco Ltd., as the sole distributor of ZVI’s products in Australia and New Zealand.

“We have had enquiries from companies such as Origin Energy Ltd. in Australia, however we didn’t have a presence in Australia and New Zealand to follow up on these requests for quotations until now,” said Zahroof Mohamed, President and Founder of ZVI. “Drivetrain Power will be offering all of our valve, unloader, and actuator products in Australia and New Zealand. The engineering – the optimization of valves for a particular application, troubleshooting, and consultation – will be handled by ZVI engineers in Houston. Drivetrain Power will handle all other aspects, including getting the correct information, interfacing with the customers, customer relationship, and follow-up.”

In addition to expanding ZVI’s international presence, this partnership supports Drivetrain Power’s expansion into the gas compression market.

In September 2015, Drivetrain Power was appointed by GE Oil & Gas as an Australian distributor of reciprocating compression parts and services. The distributorship encompasses the Cooper Bessemer, Ajax, Superior, and Gemini engine and compressor brands.
