dbo:abstract
  • Grupo Compás es una empresa española que se dedica al almacenaje y distribución de válvulas industriales en aleaciones del acero como las austeníticos, las súper austeníticos, las de níquel, molibdeno y chromium. La empresa ha sido premiada como una de las sociedades de crecimiento más acelerado en 2008-2011. Suministra válvulas en Dúplex, Super Duplex, Alloy 20, monel, inconel, incoloy, Hastelloy, 6moly, 254 SMO y Titanio. Su suministro incluye las válvulas de compuerta, globo, retención, bola y mariposa. Sus válvulas se usan principalmente en el sector petroquímico, petrolífero, además del gas, la química fina y el nuclear. Grupo Compás forma parte de The M Corporation (Noruega), empresa especializada a suministros al sector petroquímico y la química fina. La empresa fue establecida en 1972, inicialmente como suministradora de piezas mecánicas pequeñas, como tuercas y bulones, a talleres de mecánica y empresas de mantenimiento de instalaciones hidráulicas, y paulatinamente extendió su suministro a las grandes ingenierías y plantas petroquímicas en España. Durante los años 80 y 90 obtuvo la representación de varios fabricantes de compresores y bombas e nivel mundial. Debido a la complejidad de esos productos, cada marca debería pasar un proceso de homologación con los usuarios finales y las ingenierías quienes construyen las plantas, y ese negocio se convirtió rápidamente en el enfoque principal de Grupo Compás. Con la proliferación de los productos asiáticos, tendencia acusada por el mercado de suministros a la petroquímica desde el año 2000, Grupo Compás empezó a retirarse del negocio de representación de fabricantes a convertirse en socio-consultor para las plantas usuarias de las piezas mecánicas que anteriormente suministraba. La estrategia de asesorar a las plantas en sus compras se aceleró de tal manera que en el 2003, el Grupo Compás extendió su servicio al resto de la Unión Europea, en 2004 a toda Europa, en 2006 a norteamerica, y a 2008 a nivel mundial, centrándose exclusivamente en la valvulería hecha de aleaciones del acero. El su negocio de suministro de válvulas, Grupo Compás cuenta con un almacén central en Barcelona desde done suministra sus clientes a nivel internacional. (es)

Grupo Compás supplies end users internationally, though the bulk of customers come from the US, Australia and European Union. Grupo Compás is part of The M Corporation (Norway), a company that specializes in supplies to petrochemical and fine chemicals companies. The company wlished in 1972, initially as a supplier of mechanical parts, such as nuts and bolts, to workshops and hydraulic maintenance companies. It gradually extended its scope of supply to larger engineering firms and manufacturing plants in Spain. During the 1980s and 1990s, the company obtained representation agreements with several international pump and compressor companies.Given the complexity of these products, the manufacturers of each brand had to be approved by the end user sites, and this part of the business gradually became the company's main focus. With the proliferation of products of Asian origin, which the market supplying to the petrochemical sector began noting heavily from 2000 onwards, Grupo Compás began withdrawing from the representation business, converting itself into a consultant to the end users to which it used to supply mechanical equipment. The strategy of advising plants on their procurements accelerated such that in 2003, Grupo Compás expanded its service from Spain to the rest of the European Union, then the rest of Europe in 2004, into North America in 2006 and to a worldwide scale in 2008, limiting its business to the valves business. In this business segment, Grupo Compás supplies valves internationally from its Barcelona warehouse. (en)
