Our global channel partner community provides a valuable network to support our flow control customers all over the world. This time, we interviewed our partner PMS valveTec from Austria. They have just been awarded the title of Top Performer in Europe for 2023 at the European Distributor days for Valmet’s flow control partners.
PMS valveTec is a certified sales and service partner for Valmet in Austria and a subsidiary of the PMS Elekto and Automationstechnik with around 500 employees.
The cooperation with Valmet (formely Metso and Neles) started around 20 years ago. At that time, we gave our support in many different service repair cases.
A big success for us this year was an order of control valves for a carbon capture project in Iceland.
The challenge was to find the best flow control solutions for an especially challenging medium, geothermal water with a lot of silica.
The project is ongoing. So far, the feedback has been positive, and the customer is satisfied.
We have a friendly, collegial and supportive partnership with Valmet. Good collaboration also helps us succeed in a challenging market.
We really enjoy the great events and the friendly interaction with the Valmet family.
Meet Heike Engels – Valmet contact for PMS
My name is Heike Engels and I work as Sales & Channel Coordinator at Valmet's flow control team in Germany. I am responsible for the distribution business in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and I am also the marketing contact for this region. After my studies in management and marketing, I did a traineeship in sales and then joined the company. After a short time, I became responsible for our partners and that's how I got my current position. Our partners are not just business partners of ours, they are part of our team. We support each other and maintain an open and respectful partnership. We work closely together to offer the best possible solution for our customers. I love this friendly way of working with my channel partners. There is always something new to learn. We have a great team, including my distributors. Thank you for motivating me every day to go a little further together! In my free time, I do sports or meet up with friends and family. This year I also discovered hiking – I can switch off well in nature and recharge my batteries for upcoming challenges.
