    Sometimes constant changes can be tough. Business structure can move around a lot, making it hard to keep any continuity.

    Pros

    Pentair bought Tyco Valves and Controls about two years ago and is trying to integrate the multiple product lines and companies. They are trying to using their form of Lean "PIMS" to integrate the various companies into a single working company. There is a lot of change going on and a long road ahead. Pentair has managed to retain a large amount of experienced people which is good for gaining knowledge about the product history.

    Cons

    Too many independent companies with their own agenda. It is hard to see a coherent direction that the company is taking. Valves and controls company dominated by pressure relief valves and has not embraced a leadership role in quarter turn and other valves.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more responsive to the customer than the competition. Need to be able to react to customer requirements in a timely fashion.
