“We are very excited about this partnership. The top-notch valve test and reconditioning facility of BEWI Energy, located at Vestbase, Kristiansund, will provide strategic presence for MRC in the region, as well as provide the most modernized test facility to deliver high-quality, cost-efficient valve test certificates and add highly qualified valve engineers to our service pool on demand” says Tord Midtsæter General Manager MRC Global Norway AS.

“Our partnership with MRC Global Norway AS confirms our strategic target of entering the market vertical by investing in highly skilled employees, the most modernized valve test and reconditioning workshop, and at the same time activating our acquisition of Delprodukt AS with its high-end capabilities of reverse engineering of spare parts” says Geir Skjevik, CEO, BEWI Energy AS. 

Joining forces will provide the companies’ customers access to a wider geographical presence, reduced need for transport and travel, access to a wide selection of new valves and position the two companies as a strong force in coming tenders requiring quality, flexibility, and capacity.

“BEWI Energy AS, already ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45000 and ISO 3834-2 certified, was audited and qualified by Magnet JQS 10th October 2021 and is now registered as a preferred supplier to the industry.
