The AVK Group is Leading the Way
In every part of the world there is a need for using the available resources in the most rewarding way. Clean water, safe and efficient handling of waste water, and protection against fires. These are some of the benefits that we invite the world to profit from when using AVK products.
American AVK is a leading U.S. manufacturer of gate valves, fire hydrants, and accessories for the water, wastewater, fire protection, and irrigation industries. Our products are used and appreciated by utilities throughout North America, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
AVK was one of the first valve manufacturers in the world to develop and design the Resilient Seated Gate Valve. The AVK Resilient Seated Gate Valve design has been improved upon continuously and has remained unmatched in quality, reliability and state of the art features. AVK is at the forefront of technology for products serving the Water Works and Fire Protection Industries.
American AVK was incorporated in 1985 to introduce AVK gate valves to North America. Since then, American AVK has continued to expand its production facilities, marketing activities and product range. AVK is now located in a state-of-the-art 180,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Minden, Nevada.
As a commitment to our customers throughout North America, and to answer an increasing demand for American AVK products, a warehouse and distribution center was established in Charleston, South Carolina in 1995 and in Dallas, Texas in 1996. In 2003 AVK Engineering Services was formed to introduce large diameter gate valves and flow control valves to the water, flood control, and hydropower markets.
American AVK is a subsidiary of the well-known AVK Group of Companies, a global manufacturer of Valves, Hydrants and Accessories for the Water Works, Waste Water, Fire Protection, and Natural Gas Industries. The AVK Group today consists of over 70 companies worldwide.
The AVK Group operates within the supply of water and gas, sewage treatment, fire protection, industrial water and oil & gas. The AVK Group profits from years of manufacturing experience combined with an in-depth commercial knowledge of market needs around the world. The group consists of a number of international companies that think globally, but act with individualised designs and solutions in order to make solutions for the local markets.
We value the importance of local customers being serviced by local sales organisations, as it is crucial for the continued development of the AVK Group that we stay close to our customers who can provide us with valuable market and product feed-back. The expansion and success of the AVK Group depend on brand recognition and brand acceptance. Only by listening to our customers, we will be able to keep living up to the market expectations of today and tomorrow. May 3
