  • Honesty – we tell the truth at all times to each other and to our clients, ‘no surprises’ for our clients

Our Approach

Upwey Valve & Engineering’s approach is one of partnership: we work with our clients so that we understand their requirements, and can identify the product for their applications. The needs of our clients must determine the solution.

We always aim for a ‘no surprises’ project delivery. To achieve this, we use a consistent project management approach. For development, we use a standard model with specified stages, and ensure our clients are fully informed at each key stage; we obtain agreement before proceeding. Fixed‐price contracts are normally agreed for each stage. When recruiting, we seek the person with the ‘best fit’ for the position, client and/or project.

  • Applying our core business values

  • A safe workplace and safe work systems
