We are expanding the export operation of our specialist fuel conveyance pipework system, PLX, with the appointment of a new strategic partner in China.
We have formed a new partnership with Veeder-Root China, one of the world’s largest suppliers of petroleum equipment and services, which will see it promote PLX across China.
From its three facilities in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, Veeder-Root China is the leading provider of petroleum products to forecourt projects across the region. While Veeder-Root is known for supplying ATG (automatic fuel tank gauge system), STPs (submersible turbine pumps) and Vapour recovery Stage II systems, it did not have access to a fuel pipe system and so the introduction of PLX to its range will enable it to offer a wider product offering to its forecourt customers.
Veeder-Root’s strong reputation across China will open up new opportunities for PLX, increasing the number of forecourt projects the product is specified for and growing its market share across China.
Commenting on the new partnership, David Naylor, our PLX Brand Manager, said: “While we currently have a strong presence in China, we recognise the potential for further growth. Veeder-Root is synonymous with supplying high quality products and our new partnership will enable us to strengthen the PLX brand and increase the volume of forecourt projects we undertake across the region.”
Alex Tai, Senior Product Manager at Veeder-Root, added: “The addition of Durapipe PLX to our range ensures we can offer a complete one-stop-shop solution for forecourt installations, offering an attractive proposition to specifiers, consultants and oil companies.”
Durapipe PLX is a below ground pipework product range specifically developed to fulfil the application needs of the forecourt market. The PLX range consists of both single wall and dual contained pipe and fittings and is purpose-designed for the safe transfer of liquid fuels and their vapours. Providing exceptional resistance to rapid crack propagation and long term stress cracking, PLX comprises a protective liner, which increases permeation resistance against many types of fuel blends ensuring there is no permeation of fuel through the pipe wall into the environment.
