The ARCA Regler GmbH has been nominated as the ‘Main Valve Vendor’ of BASF. As such the company received a certificate from the BASF team in charge of the MVV3 project at their headquarters in Tönisvorst, Germany.
The Main Valve Vendor Concept (MVV 3) is a selection process for suppliers and it is aimed at supplying standard valves for plant maintenance and projects with key suppliers.
The criteria for the qualification are quality, security and costs.
The aim of the selection process goes from a longtime collaboration with suppliers, standardisation and planning reliability, a global concept up to a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) focus.
Small and medium-sized projects will be directly contracted to the MVV3 suppliers. For big projects the bidding will be given preferably to suppliers of the standard equipment list. The MVV 3 will be effective until 2018 with optional extension to 2020.
The control valve procurement volume of the BASF within Europe amounts to about 20 - 30 Mio. Euro p.a.
The official announcement of the results and winners of the MVV3 project took place four weeks before in the BASF multifunctional hall in Ludwigshafen. All suppliers, that have won the MVV3, one of them Arca as one of two global suppliers for automatised control valves, have been invited.
With the qualification and acceptance to the BASF supplier list Arca proves its performance as a reliable control valve supplier.
