AVK UK has been awarded a framework contract by Yorkshire Water for the supply of mechanical fittings including tensile-resistant fittings, under-pressure tees, repair fittings and end caps. The contract covers AMP7 which runs from 2020 to 2025.
Although Yorkshire Water has used AVK mechanical fittings for many years, this is the first formal contractual award. Graham Charnley, AVK’s National Sales Manager, confirmed the award is down to AVK’s long-term commitment to product development, the flexibility of its logistics offering and the breadth of technical support it is able to provide:
We are looking forward to working closely with Yorkshire Water Services (YWS) as a strategic partner across the supply, implementation and support phases of this contract. Our collective goal is the reliable supply of safe and clean water to all YWS customers.’
Two of the priorities for all water companies in AMP7 are reducing leakage and customer service. AVK’s under-pressure tees enable connections to be made without disrupting customers and its repair clamps ensure continuity of supply in the event of a leak. Graham went on to explain that the contract will be serviced from the AVK Syddal factory in Manchester and from stockholdings located across the YWS region:
