VALVEcampus Association

Training is the key to success for any organization. The valve sector has seen dramatic changes in technologies in the past years with new products, stricter requirements from end users, ever changing set of international standard. The Italian valves manufacturers as a whole and its supply chain have demonstrated a sustained ability to answer the expectations of the market and have been able to raise to the challenge, thanks to their strong history and commitment, its varied multi-disciplinary structure and the ample pool of specialized expertise available in the region.
