A BRIGHOUSE engineering firm has sealed a five-year deal with a Brazilian company.
KOSO Kent Introl, which supplies control valves for a range of industries, has signed the five-year agency agreement with RTS Valvulas in a move which will help KKI to increase its presence in Brazil by opening up new distribution channels for its specialist valve products.
David Limb, sales director of KKI, said: “This agreement with Sao Paolo-based RTS Valvulas is a significant milestone for the company.
“We are increasing our valve distribution channels across the world and this includes building a local presence in Brazil where we will develop service and support channels.
“There are major offshore project opportunities that we will continue to explore across Brazil and South America, particularly for our topside and subsea choke valves.”
Mark Harris, KKI area business manager, will manage the contract and work closely with RTS Valvulas to develop new business opportunities in Brazil, primarily in the oil and gas production sector.
Based at Armytage Road, KKI is owned by Nihon KOSO Co Ltd. of Japan, a global leader in the controls and process automation systems market.
Formed in 1967 as Introl Ltd, the company specialises in the supply of standard service control valves, severe service control valves, high-technology surface choke valves and high-performance rotary valves for the oil and gas, petrochemical and power industries.
