Partnership for India between MAT Holding and Vicente Ferrer Foundation

Vicente Ferrer Foundation and MAT Holding collaborate to promote environmental awareness among young students from 100 schools in India.

  • Through the training and tree plantation, 750 high school students from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana will be trained in subjects related to climate change and global justice.
  • This initiative aims to promote the empowerment and youth leadership so that young people use their skills as an engine of social and environmental transformation. 

On ​​April 25th, 2019. - Vicente Ferrer Foundation and MAT Holding group, a worldwide reference in copper salts for agriculture, hydraulic valves and filtration and number one in distribution of products for irrigation efficiency in Spain and Portugal, have formalized a collaboration agreement to help combat climate change and promote environmental awareness among high school students in India, specifically the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Pau Relat, MAT Holding’s CEO, and Jordi Folgado, General Director at Vicente Ferrer Foundation, have signed the collaboration agreement that will initially last a period of twelve months. This initiative includes the plantation of trees to help recover arid areas due to drought and training through academies to empower 750 high school students, between 12 and 16 years, on topics related to climate change and global justice.

The project - driven by Vicente Ferrer Foundation (FVF) and Plant for the Planet organization - aims to promote the leadership and active participation of young people as "Ambassadors for Climate Justice", encouraging and supporting their commitment as real change actors in actions that contribute to the sustainability of the planet. 

As Pau Relat, MAT Holding’s CEO, has highlighted,: "Our company is committed to the environment and with the support of especially vulnerable communities, which is why it is very important for us to collaborate with organizations such as Vicente Ferrer Foundation, which is developing a key work in India”.

For more than 3 years, through its daughter company, Dorot and its subsidiary, Dorot India, MAT Holding has been a supporter and promoter of sustainable and reliable projects in water infrastructure renewal, conducted in India. In present, we are executing over 9 projects all over India, where Dorot India along with MAT Technologies implement automation solutions for water supply systems.  

On his part Jordi Folgado, general director of Vicente Ferrer Foundation, highlighted that "Our organization has a specific program to boost the economy of peasants by rationalizing the use of water. Last year we installed nearly a thousand irrigation savings equipment among our recipients. The region where we intervene suffers an endemic drought. We have been working for 50 years to fight against the desertification of Anantapur. Last year we planted 1.6 million trees to reforest the region. We believe in economic growth that respects the environment. This has always been our commitment and continues to be so now that the United Nations has picked it up as one of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Our future depends on how we take care of nature. Therefore, that is why I am so satisfied with this agreement with MAT Holding to promote environmental awareness among young people".

The informative and awareness sessions -called academies- are conceived as spaces for the identification of future ambassadors, young leaders who, based on the knowledge obtained, wish to continue learning and working for climate justice. In total, the project includes the participation of 750 students from 100 schools distributed in eight regions: Adoni, BK Samudram, Bathalapalli, Kadiri, Kalyandurg, Madakasira, Uravakonda and Srisailam. The first seven belong to the state of Andhra Pradesh and the last one to Telangana.

Vicente Ferrer Foundation is the first NGO in India with which Plant for The Planet establishes an association of this kind, to promote the conservation of the environment and contribute to the development of the local population. In addition, this project includes an exchange activity between the "young ambassadors" of India and Spain with the aim of strengthening the links of the global network of Plant for The Planet (PFTP). Since the creation of PFTP around 100,000 children around the world in more than 100 countries have participated in tree plantation.

MATHOLDING GROUP ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION OF U.S. COMPANY OCV CONTROL VALVES

Matholding Group is strengthening its market position in water control and handling solutions through the acquisition of 51 percent of the shares in the U.S. company, OCV Control Valves.  The group is rounding out its portfolio in hydraulic control valves and air valves by merging Dorot Control Valves’ expertise with OCV’s know-how and experience in the U.S. and Canadian markets.

On April 9, 2018, Matholding Group, a Spanish family-owned holding company, further secured its position as a world leader in providing water control solutions by acquiring 51 percent share in OCV Control Valves. An American family-owned company, OCV was established more than 65 years ago by Robert E. “Tex” Radford in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA.  The acquisition reinforces Matholding’s commitment to provide water control solutions, a leading position already obtained through Dorot Control Valves, Matholding’s major pillar in water control solutions. The signing of the contract took place at OCV’s headquarters in the United States.

“Matholding is constantly evolving!  We understand that our growth relies on the synergies that we create worldwide.  The U.S. market has always been a challenge for our group and now, with OCV as part of our family, we are confident in our development and growth.  Besides our common field of activity that brought us together, we share much more with OCV.  We have common values and work principles.  We understand the importance of people empowerment.  We respect and feed our innovation on the tradition of our founding families with the courage to build the future with the values they pass on from generation to generation.  This is what brings us together today.  These are the grounds for our success,” remarked Pau Relat, CEO of Matholding Group and Chairman of Dorot Control Valves.

 

With sales of more than $12 million U.S. dollars and approximately 60 employees, OCV will strengthen the group portfolio and broaden its area of activity into fluid control solutions for aviation fueling and terminal services and fire protection.  OCV’s know-how and area of expertise in these fields, combined with Dorot Control Valves’ knowledge in waterworks and agricultural areas and its vast portfolio of hydraulic control valves and air valves, will boost Matholding’s activity and position as a leading solution provider in fluid transportation and handling.  Together, the two companies are expected to have $60 million dollars in U.S. sales in 2018.

“One of the triggers of our investment that will fuel and drive us to success is the management team we have discovered in OCV.  We have a lot of knowledge to share with one another.  It is a learning process that will only bring us success.  For us, joining strengths with the Radford family is an honor and I am sure will lead us all towards a greater and sustainable future!” remarked Pau Relat.

All investments and combined know-how in the commercial, logistics and production platform between Dorot Control Valves and OCV will generate a growth for all groups’ technology in the water segment: hydraulic control valves, air valves, automation, mechanical valves, water meters, filtration and water treatment. The wide expansion of Matholding’s portfolio and expertise in solutions in automation and control and NRW projects combined with OCV’s strong reputation and brand awareness in the U.S. market will position OCV as one of the leading solution providers in the water market for the U.S. and Canada.

“OCV has built its reputation on high quality products and the best customer service that we can provide.  When we first met with the Matholding team, the things that stood out to us were their strong corporate values and their people-focused company culture, which we felt closely aligned with ours.  We are now one team with one goal.  We are proud to be a part of the Matholding family and together we are now in a stronger position,” remarked Britt Radford, Board Member OCV.

DOROT CHINA TRAINING IN WATER LOSS MANAGEMENT

Danny Rosenbluth, Regional Director for Asia Pacific and Nick Peng from Dorot China gave a talk about pressure reducing valves as a mean to reduce water loss. The talk was given in the cities of Zhengzhou and Pingdingshan, in the province Henan. In each location we spoke to 100 municipal water engineers and managers.

The growing urban centres across China are presenting a growing challenge to the water networks in these regions. The internal migration from the rural farmlands to the Megacities has put a strain on the ability to provide consistent quality drinking water.

The networks in the city centres are old and the cost of refurbishing them, both in funds and in disruption to the city life is one that everyone wants to avoid.

The main problem is that pushing more water in the pipe systems is not helpful. the more they push the more water is lost in leaks.

Using mechanical valves to regulate the water flow and pressure has proved ineffective. The constant changes in the flow are hard to manage. The lack of real-time data does not allow for a real-time response or long-term planning.

The solution as tested and proved around the world is with hydraulically controlled valves. These valves constantly sense the pressure and flow changes and respond in real-time. Using electronically controlled hydraulic control valves allows for a 2-way communication with the valve and the ability to receive real-time data and chance the set points for the valves from a distant location.
