COHOES, NY – To better serve the needs of European customers, global manufacturer and supplier of conformal coating and other precision dispensing systems, PVA (Precision Valve & Automation, Inc.) has opened a new spare parts warehouse in France. Located just outside of Paris in Marne-la-Vallee, the new facility will significantly cut down on shipping times and transit costs for spare parts, which have always been sent out of PVA's New York headquarters.
The new facility opened February 25, 2014 to meet the demands of a rapidly expanding European customer base, a key growth market for PVA. Now, with parts being stored in France, shipping times are significantly reduced and in most cases parts will arrive in one day.
No disruption in service was necessary with bringing the new European facility online. Because the order process will remain the same, the only change customers will notice is quicker arrival of their order.
"With the rapid pace of the industry, we are making proactive efforts to broaden our geographical proximity to our customers," said Frank Hart, Global Sales and Marketing Manager at PVA. "Opening the spare parts warehouse is part of our ongoing commitment to invest in providing exceptional delivery, service and support in Europe."
