Rotork is the world's leading manufacturer of Electric, Pneumatic & Hydraulic Valve Actuators and associated Control Systems, Valve Gearboxes & Valve Accessories - supported by the Rotork worldwide service network.
Rotork's business is split into three actuation divisions supported by our service company; Rotork Site Services:
Rotork Controls is Rotork's electric valve actuator division, offering an electrical solution to industrial valve control and actuation applications of virtually any size, description and complexity.
Rotork Fluid Systems is dedicated to the design, manufacture, sale and support of high torque and reliable fluid power valve actuators on a global scale.
Rotork Gears offers an unrivalled service for valve gearboxes and accessories, completing Rotork's status as the 'one-stop-shop' for valve actuation and control equipment for applications of all sizes and complexity.
Flow control engineering group Rotork is pleased to announce the award of the new framework agreement for the supply of valve actuators to United Utilities, the UK's largest listed water company.
Serving a population of seven million, United Utilities operates 184 reservoirs, more than 700 water and sewage treatment plants and 170,000 kilometres of pipework and sewers in an area bounded by the English Midlands, the Irish Sea, the Scottish Borders, the Pennines and the Peak District.
After a period with another electric actuator manufacturer the move to Rotork follows the revision of the United Utilities specification for valve actuators to include a double-sealed and non-intrusive actuator enclosure.
These features, which are recognised by United Utilities as essential for long term environmental resistance, reliable performance and low maintenance, are standard design features of Rotork's IQ and IQT intelligent electric valve actuator ranges. In addition to contributing to efficient plant operation, they also help to reduce the overall cost of ownership.

Commenting on the award, Laurence said "Rotork is looking forward to the successful implementation of this new opportunity to serve United Utilities and its business partners."
