AS-Schneider seals quality in tailored valve solutions
The industrial valves market is expecting a boost from the oil and gas sector as more oil and natural gas pipeline projects are being implemented on the mainland and across Southeast Asia. With demand for high-quality and customised valve technology on the upswing, AS-Schneider Asia-Pacific is firmly established to deliver the best-fit solutions to energy and industrial applications in the region.
A direct and wholly owned subsidiary of top German industrial valve manufacturer Armaturenfabrik Franz Schneider (AS-Schneider Group), AS-Scheider Asia-Pacific is backed by 140 years of experience in developing and manufacturing industrial valves. With a global team of research and development (R&D) specialists, AS-Schneider works closely with clients to develop customised valve solutions that continuously remove potential leak points and reduce emission rates.
"Our products are tailored to our customers' businesses," says Tim-Frederik Kohler, managing director of AS-Schneider Asia-Pacific. "We have full access to our R&D teams in Germany and in other countries, so if clients need a design done, they get full access to that global knowledge base too."
Applying lean practices that meet international standards, AS-Schneider produces reduced fugitive emission valves stamped with the German seal of quality and innovation. Its broad production range, coupled with its speed and flexibility, allows it to handle efficiently all customer requirements in-house. Its Singapore plant can also modify designs and deliver the altered product to the client within the same day it was requested.
"We have very fast client response and delivery times," Kohler says. "Projects and instrumentations can become very complex, so we are also flexible. We produce whatever the client wants."
AS-Schneider provides valve technology edge to global companies such as Emerson, Sinopec and DOW Chemical. Intent on collaborating more closely with clients, it opened an office in Shanghai to reinforce its Singapore warehouse and assembly line.
"As we grow, we help our customers grow too," Kohler says.
