CINCINNATI, OHIO USA – OPW, a Dover Company (NYSE: DOV) and the global leader in fluid-handling solutions, has announced its upcoming involvement in PetroForum Jakarta 2014. The event takes place from March 3-5 at the Shangri La Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia, and is designed to connect fuel retailers with manufacturers at a unique networking conference.
“We are very much looking forward to attending PetroForum 2014. OPW had a tremendous year of growth in 2013 with the additions of KPS and Fibrelite, and the Jakarta event will provide the perfect venue to for us to discuss the potential benefits these acquisitions will have for our retail-petroleum channel partners in the Asia Pacific region,” said Richard Chen, Managing Director for OPW China.
Based in the United Kingdom, Fibrelite in the 1980s introduced the first composite access covers and containment systems for the retail-petroleum industry, in the process creating a product category in which it remains a global leader today. Fibrelite has also developed premium lines of resin-transfer-molded fuel-tank and dispenser sumps. Kungsors Plast AB (KPS), which is headquartered in Sweden, pioneered the use of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) fusion piping and fittings for the retail-petroleum industry in the 1990s, with further expansion into HDPE piping systems for LPG-fueling applications in subsequent years. Specifically, OPW will be highlighting the Fibrelite lids and sumps and KPS’ family of Petrol Pipe Systems at the show.
The acquisitions of the Fibrelite and KPS product lines fit seamlessly within OPW’s complete end-to-end fueling solutions for retail-petroleum site operators around the world. Other OPW product lines that will be on display at Petroforum Jakarta 2014 include the Vaporsaver, CVS2 and other lines of vapor-recovery systems; the FlexWorks Loop System™ plug-and-play underground fueling system; its complete portfolio of aboveground storage tank (AST) products; the complete array of CleanEnergy Fueling Products; and the latest innovations in underground fuel-transfer, containment, and spill and overfill prevention.
