The IVE Difference

A Critical Question. What Makes us Different from The Rest?

In a nutshell. Our people, our technology and our ability to deliver the highest quality work on time, every time

What makes us different? That's a question well worth asking, because it helps to form the basis of decision making when choosing a preferred service provider. Following are our key points of difference.

Market Leadership

"IVE is the clear market leader in New Zealand."

Being the clear market leader in New Zealand is a privileged position achieved through years of dedicated service. IVE's leadership is multi-faceted. Our facilities, people, experience, knowledge base and sheer capacity. All are without peer in the industry.

Our Team

"An absolutely exceptional
team of people."

The team at IVE really are an exceptional group of people. We have more trained Valve Technicians than any other service provider in New Zealand. Our entire team of highly experienced Technicians, Support Staff and Managers work together cohesively and efficiently to bring you a quality of service that's second to none.

The Most Advanced Technology

"Technology is an integral part of our business."

The use of state of the art technology is second nature at IVE. We use technology to eliminate guesswork. Through sophisticated valve diagnostics we can accurately determine which valves need repair and the extent of work required. Inline diagnostics and testing eliminates unnecessary waste and increases plant up-time.

Test Lab and Workshop Facilities

"Three world class workshops and test laboratories."

IVE has three of the best equipped test laboratories and workshops in New Zealand. Our workshops are fully accredited to IS09001:2000 and NZS/IS0/IEC17025:1999. Standards are rigidly adhered to and independently audited on a regular basis. We also have the only laboratories in New Zealand accredited to test valves up to 10,000psi. Our facilities are world class.

Certification and Guarantee

"Every valve refurbished is certified and guaranteed."

At IVE we don't stop when refurbishing work is finished. We also issue a full test certificate with every valve tested and overhauled. And every valve is guaranteed. We remain totally responsible and are fully accountable throughout.

Unique Valve Service History

"Full service history is databased for every valve."

Each and every valve maintained by IVE is stamped with a unique identification number and logged onto our database. Full details of the service history are recorded. That means we can accurately track the performance and maintenance record of every valve throughout its life, and answer any questions you may have.

Major Shutdown Capability

"Resourced to handle any shutdown, regardless of size."

IVE has participated in many of New Zealand's largest shutdowns. Our resources for such shutdowns extends well beyond our own Valve Technicians and support personnel. We frequently acquire contract labour from a database of over 600 personnel. Our resources are capable of meeting any demand and our track record on major shutdowns is impeccable.

Safety Record

"An unparalleled safety performance record."

IVE's safety performance record is second to none. In over 30 years in business we have not experienced a single major injury. We strictly adhere to the standards prescribed in the ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices, Secondary Level.

An Outstanding Reputation

"IVE lives by its reputation. It's one we're proud of."

In the final analysis, it's what customers say about us that really counts. Ask any IVE customer and you're highly likely to hear about the competency of our team, the highest quality workmanship and our ability to meet deadlines. We live by our reputation and we work very hard to maintain it.

The closer you look at IVE, the more you'll appreciate the extent and value of our differentiators.
