A business relationship going back to 2001 brought together two men, one from Denmark and one from China to set up Coreline in 2014.

Ole Bjoern Jensen and his partner Bill Sun are in Johannesburg this week with their range of specialised valves. The joint-venture between Denmark and China is already reaping rewards in South Africa.

“Bill can manufacture according to specifications that I provide,” said Ole Bjoern. “We’ve been very successful with our range of butterfly valves, ball valves, check valves, knife gate valves and the like.”

Coreline is at INDUTEC 2017 as a way of meeting two existing clients in Johannesburg, he said. “Within the first hour we received a positive enquiry so we’re looking for success with new business too.”

Coreline Valve Co can be found at stand C24.
