This year, Val-Matic Valve & Mfg. Corp. celebrates its 40th year of operation. Andrew Nuter and Ted Makowan started the company in 1966 with only three employees. With determination and vision, Val-Matic has grown into a multi-million dollar, international corporation.
Well-known in the water and wastewater industries for the quality and service it provides, Val-Matic’s growth has included many new products and certifications. Today, Val-Matic produces and sells over 15 different products including air valves, check valves, butterfly valves, plug valves and the market’s first and only inflow preventer, the FloodSafe.
Val-Matic is based in the Chicago suburb of Elmhurst, Ill., and produces valves and valve-related products for the municipal, commercial building and industrial markets.
