Graco Inc. was established in 1926 and is a world leader in fluid handling solutions. For decades, we’ve delivered high quality equipment solutions to the Oil & Natural Gas market. In 2014, we decided to create a dedicated business unit to focus on the Oil & Natural Gas market and acquired two well-respected equipment manufacturers – Alco Valves Group in 2014 and High Pressure Equipment Company in 2015.
Alco Valves Group manufactures and supplies a wide range of valves to some of the most well know names in the Oil and Natural Gas industry, as well as supporting other markets like petrochemical, automotive, nuclear and defense since 1977.
Alco has four widely known brands including Alco Valves which manufactures instrumentation valves; Alco Hi-Tek specializes in the Double Block and Bleed (DBB) market; Alco Sub-Tek supplies the subsea industry; and Alco Process supplies gate, globe, check and ball valves. Almost all of their products are designed and manufactured in the UK. They were also awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade in 2014, which recognizes their outstanding export performance.
High Pressure Equipment (HiP) is a Pennsylvania based manufacturer of valves, fittings, and other flow control equipment engineered to perform in ultra-high pressure environments, from 10,000 to 150,000 psi. They also maintain an engineering and production base in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire U.K.
Both of these companies, along with our new line of chemical injection pumps, have helped us meet the growing needs of the oil and natural gas industry. We thank all the ONG employees for their hard work and are very excited to see what 2016 brings.
