Empowering the industry toward better pipeline infrastructures for a better future
Marley is a company that prides itself on nothing but quality – not only in the products that we manufacture, but also the very integrity of the pipe installations that make up the backbone of our country’s infrastructure and economy.
As part of our commitment to sustainable development at all levels of the value chain, we strive to create opportunities to bridge the critical gap in the fundamental knowledge of best practice pipeline design and installation as it correlates with quality standards and specifications to address service delivery challenges, through hands-on support and skills transfer.
Through the various training opportunities, led by industry experts, Marley teaches contractors, installers and specifiers not only on the importance of quality in the manufacture and installation of pipe systems, but also key considerations in the layout and design of piping systems to safeguard structural integrity and to ensure that compliance is maintained.
