Wolseley applies stringent standards to vendor selection allowing only industry leaders with innovative products in their supply chain. FLO-CORP fits the aforementioned requirements and joins Wolseley as a preferred supplier for flow, level, and display instrumentation.
“Wolseley Industrial Group is excited about the addition of FLO-CORP to our preferred supplier portfolio representing the best in class providers of products and services. As with all of our preferred supply partners, FLO-CORP is engaged in working with our Sourcing and Site personnel driving value through the supply of product, efficient logistics, delivery of new products, processes and technologies. FLO-CORP is a world class organization with the experience and proven record of channel collaboration that gives them an advantage over other providers in the industry,” explains Phillip Gibbons, Senior Sourcing Manager at Wolseley Industrial Group.
FLO-CORP’s extensive experience in flow and level measurement across a wide variety of industries allows it to be an ideal choice for Wolseley’s integrated service offerings. FLO-CORP is able to bring expertise to a specific area of Wolseley’s vast capabilities and the partnership will provide added value to end users in product quality, innovation, and customer service.
Wolseley has developed a host of product offerings and solutions for the automotive, aerospace, energy, semiconductor, and healthcare industries in addition to serving general industry needs. Take energy and semiconductor as an area of industrial focus. Wolseley has provided integrated solutions for Alcoa and Freescale Semiconductor exceeding customer expectations with high quality products and expert technicians.
Wolseley’s work in the energy industry is complimented by FLO-CORP’s experience in the same. “The correct flow meter depends on a lot of factors and selection is not a ‘one size fits all’ process,” says Dave Grumney, President of FLO-CORP. Specifically, FLO-CORP’s recent solutions for customers in hydraulic fracturing and oil refining are prime examples. While volumetric flow meters were the right choice for a Marcellus Shale hydraulic fracturing site in Pennsylvania, an Alaskan pipeline project was better serviced by positive displacement flow meters. All metal volumetric flow meters meet the appropriate needs for durability and particulate matter for the former; whereas, positive displacement meters supply the required low flow accuracy for oil measurement in the later.
These two examples are simple at surface level. However, decades of experience come together to weigh all the factors of each application ensuring the proper meter is ordered and configured correctly the first time. And FLO-CORP recommends meters that will stand the test of time considering factors such as corrosive resistance, extreme temperatures, high pressure, sticky substances, and many others. With FLO-CORP on its team, Wolseley can offer the best integrated solutions to customers knowing measurements will be accurate and reliable.
