 Canada’s VAHN-TECH International Inc. enters into Joint Venture with SUNPOWER GEN to produce highest quality API 6D - certified and other Industrial valve products.

Canadian industrial valve manufacturer VAHN-TECH International Inc. has launched a Joint Venture production facility in association with SUNPOWER GEN FZCO at the National Industries Park in Jebel Ali Industrial Area in Dubai.

The facility will be officially inaugurated by Canadian Consul General in Dubai H.E. Mrs. Marcy GROSSMAN on January 10, 2019.

The joint venture will locally produce American Petroleum Institute (API)-certified 6 D and other valves for various industrial applications, thus adding to the In-Country Value (ICV) contributions within the sector. 

As the technology and production partner, VAHN-TECH will bring in its expertise in Design, Engineering, Production support & In-situ inspections. SUNPOWER GEN FZCO will provide state-of-the-art infrastructure for Valve manufacturing and skilled work-force for In-Situ & Factory Repair services along with Product Life-Cycle management, leveraging on parent SUPERTECH GROUP’s strong presence in the Middle East for over 45 years.  SUNPOWERGEN FZCO is accredited with IS0 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 & ISO 45001:2018 certifications – proof of adherence to strictest norms on Quality, Health, Safety & Environmental systems.

The new facility is expected to strengthen VAHN-TECH’s regional presence and build on its vast and loyal customer base.  Besides, manufacturing the valves in UAE supports the vision of country’s leaders on having business houses in UAE increase the “In Country Value (ICV)” contribution to the country’s GDP.

Among the customers of the company, which has 25 years of experience in the industry, are ADGAS, GASCO, PDO OMAN, OCCIDENTAL PETROLEUM OMAN, QATAR PETROLEUM, and in overseas KAZANORGSINTEZ, MURPHY OIL, APACHE OIL, SUNCOR ENERGY, ENCANA, PLAINS MIDSTREAM, FMC Technologies and PEMEX.
