Much more to Valves
Principal Designer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 22, 2016
When I started at Valvtechnologies I was thinking this is going to be easy, there is nothing to a valve. I found out that there is so much to know it is quite overwhelming. Materials is very important depending on temperature range, hardness depending on refinery or mining conditions. Also chemicals that are being exposed to makes a huge condition for the seals which sometimes have to be custom designed just for a few valves. Then there is torque rating which dictates which actuator rating is needed depending on pressures being induced to valve. There are hydraulic, manual, electric, and pneumatic actuators from lots of different vendors with different bolting patterns and individual drive sleeves have to be designed for every application as well as mounting brackets. All of that is the basics, then there is the machining aspect of all the components which I won't go into detail, there is much to know and learn. there is also the aspect between forging and casting which can change the designs dramatically. I learned more then I could ever have expected from working at Valvtechnologies. It was quite a educational career choice. Unfortunately it is a job that revolves around sales. If they aren't selling then we aren't designing.
Pros
Close to home, good people
Cons
Many lay offs

Laid back management style
Document Control Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 27, 2015
Unfortunately VTI does not provide a progressive work environment that encourages critical analysis and achieves effective results. My experience at VTI was generally a positive one. However, this company does not recognize talented individuals and tends to overlooking the gold mine they have before them chasing the profit. Often, they staff key positions with personnel that is not qualified to do the work at the level required resulting in greater expense to VTI in the long run.

Great workplace

The people here are knowledgeable about their jobs. Open door policy is a company mandate. It was hard to find a permanent role because people never left the job. That is a good thing for them.
Pros
stability
Cons
no openings

Overall pretty good
Director- Global Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 22, 2012
Overall this is a pretty good company. I don't really have anything negative to say about them. The owner is a really great guy who built this company from nothing. He is smart, humble and loyal to people he trust. However, I think he sometimes trust the wrong people.
