Flowserve will initially open an onsite Quick Response Center (QRC) at Dow’s Terneuzen facility in the Netherlands. The QRC will employ approximately 35 people and will be designed to handle all rotating equipment maintenance for the Terneuzen facility.
 
Within three years, Flowserve plans to relocate this QRC and become part of Maintenance Valuepark Terneuzen, an initiative of a number of maintenance service-providing companies, educational institutions and the government to establish a regional centre of excellence.
 
Flowserve has been a Dow global provider for a number of years, supplying and maintaining pumps, mechanical seals and valves.
 
“We are very proud that Dow Benelux has entrusted Flowserve with this important project,” said Kirk Wilson, president, Flowserve Services and Solutions Operations. “This agreement fully aligns with our strategy to provide total equipment lifecycle solutions to the process industry, including everything from the supply of new equipment to operations and maintenance support using our comprehensive portfolio of end user services and solutions.”
