PORTERSVILLE, PA – ValvTechnologies, the leading manufacturer of zero-leakage, severe service isolation valve solutions, has signed a management agreement with Portersville Valve Company of western Pennsylvania to support growth plans in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, Ohio and Maryland.

Todd Pozzuto, General Manager of Portersville Valve, said that plans include a new 60,000 square foot facility to be constructed on a recently purchased 23-acre site as well as the addition of 25 new jobs.  All current positions will be retained.

“Our team has an outstanding reputation for delivering specialized valve solutions to the pressure process industry,” said Pozzuto. “With ValvTechnologies’ investment in our operation, we are confident that we will be the best-equipped, most experienced industrial valve sales and service organization in the mid-Atlantic region.”  Since 1966 they have served a legacy of power, pulp and paper, oil and gas, petrochemical and pharmaceutical businesses in this area.
