Gloucester-based Severn Glocon manufactures industrial control valves for clients in the oil and gas industry such as BP, with sales and servicing supplied from offices worldwide. The company’s managing director, Maurice Critchley, says he expects further international growth to come from valves supplied to clients in China and the Middle East. It recently opened sales offices in Brazil and China, supporting local agents to provide greater product information to clients. Overseas turnover rose 62% a year, from £8.6m in 2006 to £22.5m in 2008, with further growth anticipated as service centres are opened in these countries.
