HOUSTON, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Union Tech Co., LLC has announced today that it has reached a mutual agreement to terminate its master distributor agreement with Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. Union Tech's metal-seated ball valves (MSBV) will no longer be exclusively marketed and sold under the "PBV-UT" brand. The valves will now be available directly from Union Tech under the Z-Series valve product line, consisting of both severe-service MSBVs and rising stem ball valves (RSBV). Since 2005, Union Tech has engineered, manufactured, and sold over 100,000 metal-seated severe-service ball valves, both domestically and overseas, as the OEM for a number of different brands.
Robert Hsia, Union Tech's Vice President, commented, "We believe that a more efficient supply chain allows Union Tech to interface with customers to develop the best solutions, as well as optimize the value proposition of our Z-Series product line. Our unique approach to production, whereby product engineers and manufacturing experts are paired in tandem, every substantial component is machined internally, and all critical manufacturing processes are performed in-house, differentiates Union Tech from our competitors. As a result, this enables us to ensure quality and consistency, achieve aggressive delivery demands, and deliver disruptive value to our customers."
Union Tech is a global, integrated manufacturer of oil tools, including upper and lower completion tools, sand control tools, and highly engineered valves. Union Tech is headquartered in Houston, TX with manufacturing and distribution facilities located worldwide. For more information, please visit www.uniontechmfg.com.
