Since its inception in 1965, Astec has gone on to serve the oil & gas, refining, petrochemical, thermal-gas nuclear power plants, chemical, shipbuilding and CNG sectors. Today the company is active in over 40 countries and has achieved over a million installations. This staggering figure includes products from its standard range of instrument tube fittings such as needle, ball, gauge, manifold, DBB & mono-flange valves as well as integrated assemblies such as sampling systems and skids.
Astec is very much looking forward to the future, says Dr. Kiranbir Singh Kohli. “For example, recent milestones include signing a five-year rate contract with Occidental Petroleum Oman for the supply of metal-to-metal and soft-seated double block & bleed valves as well as signing a three-year rate contract with ADNOC for the supply of mono-flanges. Moreover, the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC/KOC) has certified us as the trusted partner for the supply of instrumentation manifolds & needle valves.”
