Leser plans expansion

The safety valve manufacturer’s operations have won ASME certification and Saudi Aramco’s approval

THE safety valve manufacturer Leser has been awarded ASME certification for its operations in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The facility was certified after meeting ASME National Board’s quality requirements in an audit carried out in April 2013. From now on, Leser will now be able to supply safety valves with the ASME UV-stamp directly from Saudi Arabia.

Recently, the facility in Al Jubail was also inspected and approved by Saudi Aramco as a “local approved company” in the kingdom.

Operated by Leser partner Binzagr International Trading Company, one of the leading oil and gas suppliers in Saudi Arabia, the facility includes a well-stocked warehouse with over 300 valves.

Safety valves for many industrial applications, especially for the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, are available for delivery within one week ex stock.

Leser has intensified its activities in Saudi Arabia since 2010 and worked with its partner Binzagr to expand product offerings and services in the kingdom. The facility in Al Jubail was jointly established to provide the complete range of safety valve services. In particular, the Leser product groups API and compact performance, which are used in oil and gas plants, will be assembled in Al Jubail.

“The ASME certification and Saudi Aramco approval are important milestones in the expansion of our activities here in the Middle East”, says Nanda Gopal, head of Leser Middle East. “We are very proud that the high quality of our safety valves and processes has been confirmed by third parties,” he adds.

UV certification is a key requirement for supplying to oil and gas companies. With the approval of the local facility in Al Jubail, Leser can now offer UV certified valves in the region with faster and more reliable delivery times.

From its regional head office in Manama, Bahrain Leser provides local service and consulting directly from the manufacturer. This includes sizing of safety valves, technical consulting on specific applications and special industrial requirements. “Our team of experts offer quick and precise answers to technical questions on safety valves”, says Gopal.

Leser is represented by a partner in almost every country in the Middle East.
