The ARCA Regler GmbH, Germany is now „Main Valve Vendor“ of BASF and received a certificate from the BASF persons in charge of the MVV3 project at their headquarter in Tönisvorst.
The Main Valve Vendor Concept (MVV 3) is a selection process for suppliers developed by the BASF that is aimed at supplying standard valves for plant maintenance and projects with key suppliers.
Beginning 2014 the BASF started a concept for qualification of suppliers that has been divided into three phases and is decided by the criteria quality, security and costs. The MVV 3 project has been started beginning of 2016, build on the already successfully running MVV 2 project, implemented in the years 2010 to 2015 for standard manual valves and automatized valves.
The aim of the selection process goes from a longtime collaboration with suppliers, standardization and planning reliability, a global concept up to a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) focus.
Small and medium-sized projects will in the future be directly and without bidding contracted to the MVV3 suppliers. For big projects the bidding will be given preferably to suppliers of the standard equipment list. The MVV 3 will be effective until 2018 with optional extension to 2020. The control valve procurement volume of the BASF within Europe amounts to about 20 - 30 Mio. Euro p.a..
The official announcement of the results and winners of the MVV3 project took place four weeks before in the BASF multifunctional hall in Ludwigshafen. All suppliers, that have won the MVV3, one of them Arca as one of two global suppliers for automatized control valves, have been invited.
With the qualification and acceptance to the BASF supplier list Arca proves its performance as a reliable control valve supplier. The award is sign of confidence and acknowledgement for very good work as well as incentive at the same time. The whole Arca team is looking forward to a joint and successful cooperation.
