To meet the demands and expectations of its growing customer base, significant changes have been made to the group’s organisational structure over the past year, and the Management team at AVK Australia are delighted to welcome Steve Lee to the newly created position of General Manager, Sales and Marketing – Civil.

Steve has a long history in the valve industry, spending the bulk of his working life in Sales and Management roles for Keystone, Tyco Flow Control and Pentair Flow Control.

With a proven track record of over 20 years of experience and success within manufacturing, service and business development, Steve has the required industry knowledge, strategic skillset and technical ability to position AVK strongly within the market.

Steve will be primarily responsible for the strategic management of AVK’s sales and marketing within the civil infrastructure segments in the Australasian region, which includes product sales from AVK Valves, AVK Wang and AVK Currumbin.

AVK Australia Holding Pty Ltd is part of the AVK global Group, a highly respected and leading manufacturer of quality valves and fittings for the global water, gas, sewage and fire protection industries.

AVK Australia Holding Pty Ltd is responsible for the group's activities in the Australasian region, comprising Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific Rim, East Timor, Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya.

Established in Adelaide in 1998, AVK is the sole Australian manufacturer of valves for the general civil and water industry markets with the majority of its production program based in Australia. The group has operations across Australia including a recently acquired foundry based in QLD and a clamps and couplings manufacturing facility in country Victoria. These strategic acquisitions have further strengthened the group’s Australian market position as a truly local supplier.

This further strengthening of our team will allow AVK’s national sales to focus wholeheartedly on meeting customer’s needs on the ground and in the field.

Steve will join AVK on the 10th January 2018.
