Pentair People: Herentals production team for WellMate tanks enjoy feeling the pressure.
We wrote recently about the Pentair strategic decision to establish a production line for WellMate, its flagship pressure boosting vessel, at its tank manufacturing plant in Herentals in Belgium. The relocation had many upsides for European customers. These included a considerably reduced lead time for orders, more stock availability, better alignment with European Directives for pressure equipment and ultimately a lower carbon footprint as local manufacturing considerably reduces the emissions generated by shipping containers of empty tanks across the Atlantic.
Regulatory compliance. An integral part of the Pentair package.
How do you choose a product? Quality, reliability, availability and, of course, price all score high in procurement surveys. Surprisingly few mention ‘regulatory compliance’. Possibly because it can be taken for granted – especially in the highly regulated water treatment industry in which we operate.
