Posted: Friday, September 30th, 2016 | By: Julie Bodine

donaldHOUSTON, TX – ValvTechnologies, Inc., manufacturer of zero-leakage severe service isolation valve solutions, is pleased to announce that Donald Polasek, North American Service Manager, has accepted the position of board member for the Valve Repair Council.

Founded in 1989, member companies of the Valve Manufacturers Association of America (VMA) saw a need to promote both safety and quality in valve and actuator repair. As a result, the service operations of VMA members banded together to create the Valve Repair Council (VRC).

“My first involvement with the VRC began in the 1990’s and since that time I have grown in my appreciation for the value the organization offers,” said Polasek. “Having served two previous terms on the board in past years I am honored to once again be selected for a third tenure on the board of directors and look forward to being a part of driving continued value to the VRC members.”

The VRC was formed to provide all qualified repairers and rebuilders of flow-control equipment-who are repairing to OEM specification-with a means to meet the following objectives:

  • To promote safety through proper repair and rebuild
  • To establish and promulgate guidelines for proper repair and service
  • To educate manufacturers, rebuilders and customers on the importance of proper service and the dangers inherent in substandard service
  • To publish a list of members’ qualified service facilities for the benefit of end-users
  • To provide a forum for the legal exchange of information that will advance the quality and integrity of service
  • To promote open discussion among OEMs, repair shops and users on problems relating to maintenance and repair
  • To cooperate with standards’ development bodies and regulatory agencies in the development of appropriate standards and regulations pertaining to service
