Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Valve Automation & Controls (VAC), a W&O company and provider of fluid control solutions to the industrial, water, wastewater and marine markets, announced the expansion of its distribution territory with Chesterton to include Los Angeles and San Diego. Founded in 1884, Chesterton is a manufacturer of fluid sealing products, coatings, cleaners, lubricants and specialty products. Its products meet EPA Clean Air Act emissions requirements for sealing devices, and are used in applications such as pump mechanical seals, valve and pump packing, gaskets, reaction seals, hydraulic cylinder seals and more.

The relationship between W&O, VAC and Chesterton began in late 2012 when Chesterton was seeking to expand its influence in the marine industry, which led to a successful partnership with W&O in the Gulf of Mexico region. The new partnership that expands VAC’s distribution with Chesterton in San Diego and Los Angeles will allow VAC to broaden its customer base to include commercial and industrial markets.
