THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apergy Corporation (“Apergy”) (NYSE: APY), announced today that it has been awarded the 2018 Global Customer Value Leadership Award by Frost & Sullivan as part of their annual Best Practices Awards. 

This award recognizes Apergy for excellence in boosting wellsite productivity with its end-to-end, pure-play onshore equipment and technology. Frost & Sullivan also noted how Apergy’s highly engineered technologies, wellsite productivity software, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-powered systems, and digital transformation solutions are helping operating companies safely and cost-effectively drill and produce oil and gas.

"Apergy sets itself apart with its advanced, integrated technologies, a customer service network dedicated to response and solution delivery, technical and application experts, as well as acquisitions of some of the most trusted brands in the oil and gas industry," said Muthuraman Ramasamy, Industry Director at Frost & Sullivan.

"Another significant advantage of Apergy's services is that more than 90% of the operating wells in unconventional oil-rich United States basins are located within two miles of an Apergy service center. Thus, the company can address customer requests in less than 24 hours, which is the fastest response time in the market," noted Ramasamy.

Sivasankaran "Soma" Somasundaram, President and Chief Executive Officer, said of the award, “It is an honor to receive this award. It further validates our customer-centric culture and our relentless focus on working collaboratively with our customers to solve problems.”
