Hot on the heels of winning several innovation awards in the last 12 months, PLX has now scooped the top award in the annual Aliaxis Global Awards.
Developed to recognise those businesses and teams that have delivered on the company’s core values, the Aliaxis awards are designed to reward projects that have put customers or employees at their heart to deliver a market-leading proposition. With entries open to more than 100 companies across 45 countries, PLX triumphed over projects and initiatives across the globe to scoop the sought-after prize.
PLX, our specialist fuel conveyance pipework system, was selected as the winning project by judges due to the exceptional growth the product has experienced over the last 12 months. Continued product innovation and development, in line with customer and market feedback, has ensured we continue to offer a system that meets the needs of customers for fuel applications in a variety of markets.
In the last 12 months alone several new product innovations have been introduced to the range including PLX+, a ‘conductive’ fuel pipe system, and a new chamber entry fitting to provide a robust solution for fuel tank connections.
This continued product development has ensured PLX continues to expand into new markets with new customers and projects being secured in China, Thailand, Egypt and Australia.
Commenting on the award win, our Fuel Systems Product Manager, Rich Pedley, said: “The standard in this category was extremely high, there are some fantastic projects and initiatives being implemented in Aliaxis companies worldwide. This award is truly a team achievement, with the UK collaborating with group companies worldwide to ensure we can provide the best possible products and service to our customers.
“Our PLX system is going from strength to strength, we are continuing to expand into new markets with new customers coming on board all the time as they realise the benefits of the system. Innovation is key to the success of PLX and we continually introduce product developments to ensure our portfolio meets the needs of our customers across the globe.”
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.
PLX is manufactured as a multilayer pipe utilising the superior mechanical characteristics of polyethylene as a base material, which enables the pipe to be permanently welded using electrofusion technology. PLX comprises a protective liner, which increases permeation resistance against many types of fuel blends ensuring there is no transfer of fuel through the pipe wall into the environment.
