Atlantic Valve Services Launches to Serve the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern U.S.

September 5, 2017

Control Associates announced it has formed a joint venture with Proconex called Atlantic Valve Services.

This joint venture was created to complement the expanded product lines both companies now offer as a result of Emerson’s recent acquisition of the Valves & Controls business unit of Pentair. Both Proconex and Control Associates recently expanded product portfolio extends well beyond their traditional brands of Fisher, Bettis, TopWorx, EIM and Enardo, and now includes well known trusted brands in pressure relief and isolation valves like Anderson Greenwood, Crosby, Keystone, Vanessa, KTM, Clarkson and Yarway.

In support of the newly acquired product lines, Control Associates has expanded its ability to provide local access to Comprehensive Valve Services. Having recently obtained both the VR and T/O certifications from the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors, Control Associates through its Atlantic Valve Services business unit is authorized to conduct repairs and modifications to pressure relief valves. The team recently developed a fully functional service trailer, which allows field service technicians to pull directly up to a customer site and perform testing repair on safety relief valves – from any manufacturer.

Included with the launch of Atlantic Valve Services is the acquisition of the former Pentair Service Operations and Factory Repair center located in Bridgeport, NJ. This acquisition adds to the service delivery capabilities of both Control Associates and Proconex, and provides customers in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern US with 24-Hour Service, Pickup and Delivery, and Factory Trained Technicians. When combined with the well established capabilities of the Emerson Instrument and Valve Services operations in Burlington, NJ, Atlantic Valve Services further expands both companies’ ability to service any valve, anywhere.

Atlantic Valve Services will remain in the current 22,500 square foot facility in Bridgeport, NJ. The size and location enables a large local inventory of isolation and pressure relief valves to remain in stock. Additionally, support team personnel can work with customers to develop a customized list of spares to hold in inventory and make them readily available.

Test capabilities at the service center include, High Pressure Air Testing, Liquid Relief Valve Testing, Hydro Testing, Pressure/Vacuum, Pilot Valve and Rail Tank Car Relief Valve Stand.

“We are excited to announce the launch of Atlantic Valve Services, and look forward to serving our customers with these expanded service capabilities” said Terry Spaeth, President of Control Associates, Inc.

“By working together with Proconex on the formation of Atlantic Valve Services, both companies have been able to expand their service offerings and leverage our existing sales teams’ abilities to deliver Comprehensive Valve Services to our customers throughout the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic market”.
