The British Valve and Actuator Association (BVAA) has signed-up to exhibit at Fluid Power & Systems 2016, to be held at the NEC, Birmingham from 12 to14 April 2016. Association staff will be on-hand on BVAA’s 28 sq m stand (AF640) to provide guidance, advice and updates to attendees. BVAA Director and CEO, Rob Bartlett, commented: “Fluid power remains a vitally important power and motion control solution for the valve industry and its customers. Consequently, BVAA has a number of members who are specifiers, manufacturers, suppliers or indeed users of the technology. Participating in the FPS show is therefore of clear benefit to the association and its members. “Due to our strong ties to our customer-base, BVAA is very much focused on delivering business opportunities to our members as well as the more traditional trade association roles. That coupled with our impressive service portfolio is why we've quadrupled our membership in just a decade. Rob continued: “One of our main goals at FPS will therefore be to represent our 200 members and bring their products and services to the attention of the very wide customer base that the show attracts. In addition we will be there to appraise and advise potential members of the benefits of joining a dynamic, hugely successful association such as ours, and to highlight the many opportunities we can deliver. We will also be promoting our independent training courses, Guidelines, publications and the superb technical support BVAA has to offer.” BVAA Chairman, David Millar (Heap & Partners), added: “‘A huge proportion of BVAA members are engaged in wide variety of end-user industries such as oil and gas, chemical, petro-chem, power, waste water etc. Many of these industries demand fluid power control solutions, and as the conduit between suppliers and customers, we see the show as being one of our important opportunities to bring quality suppliers and discerning customers together.” Established in 1939, BVAA represents the interests of over 200 British companies, which are responsible for over £1billion sales each year. BVAA member companies employ more than 11,000 personnel directly in manufacturing and an equal number in support industries.
