Zahroof Valves Inc. (ZVI) and Burckhardt Compression Services (Burckhardt) have formed a partnership that expands the availability of ZVI products into the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nations. The agreement includes Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and Bahrain. Burckhardt will offer ZVI valves throughout the area, obtain all technical information required to optimize the valve for customer applications, and provide local services to install, monitor, and maintain the valves — including any required inventory. The partnership includes ZVI’s portfolio of valves, unloaders, and related products for all brands of compressors in all reciprocating compressor applications.
“Previously, ZVI did not have a distributor in the GCC region,” said Zahroof Mohamed, president of Zahroof Vales Inc. “In 2017, we became an approved vendor for Saudi Aramco for compressor valves. In 2018, ZVI installed its first set of valves in a Saudi Aramco refinery. In 2017 and 2018, I personally visited the region to meet potential customers throughout Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. It became clear that it was important to have people on the ground who were knowledgeable about compressors and compressor valves to work with our potential customers.”
