Q: How does Mining Valbest add value to Mexico’s mining industry?
A: Valves are one of the most delicate and crucial parts of the mining supply chain. Pipes simply transport fluids but valves have mobile parts that make their operation more complicated. In mining operations, corrosive fluids, often containing sulfuric acid, need to be well-handled. A valve failure can lead to a high-risk accident. The opportunity for adding value to our clients’ businesses is recommending alternatives that improve their operations. We offer technology that has a long operational life, especially in processes where there is corrosion and abrasion.
Q: What services differentiate you from your competitors?
A: Our main concern is that our customers improve their operational processes. To this end, we constantly collect information directly from our clients and tailor solutions for them. This information also helps us build our stock with their needs in mind, and we are able to deliver our products within a competitive time frame. We also capacitate our clients’ engineering departments, with the goal of making them as knowledgeable as possible about how to select and use valves. Using a metal valve when a plastic one would be more appropriate can impact negatively on the safety and productivity of a mining operation. This technical capacitation is free of cost to our clients.
