PJ Valves (PJV), a manufacturer and supplier of valves, has started a new piping business, PJ Piping (PJP), in response to demand in the market for a simplified pipe, valves and fittings (PVF) supplier process. Located in Houston, TX, the company – operating as part of the PJ Group – will supply specialist pipe fittings, flanges and other piping components to the oil and gas, petrochemical and desalination sectors.
PJP will be led by a core team of Daniel Composto and James Short. Composto has more than eight years’ experience in piping materials – launching and running the US operations for a global pipe supplier. Short joins from PJV where he has spent 11 years working between Europe and North America managing its sales operations.
“We can now offer clients a dynamic and complete solution to their valve and piping needs by integrating our two business offerings," said Dan Munro, managing director and owner of PJV.
The company will also supply specialized and standard items including heavy wall pipe and exotic grades of pipe and is currently targeting repair and maintenance projects in the Americas.
