Clarke Valve Names Rawson/Industrial Controls Exclusive Multi-State Distributor

We are proud to announce Rawson/Industrial Controls, an ERIKS North America company, as the exclusive distributor for Clarke Valve products to oil and gas and industrial companies in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Texas, Oklahoma and the greater Gulf Coast region.

The new partnership will enable Rawson/Industrial Controls to provide quick access to local product stock and expedited, high-level service support for Clarke Valve’s state-of-the-art Dilating Disk™ technology.

Using innovative design principles derived from the aerospace industry, Clarke Valve’s proprietary Dilating Disk™ technology enables oil and gas companies to slash valve fugitive emissions, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says are responsible for 60% of all the fugitive emissions in that industry, by 98%. It also offers lower total cost of ownership, reduced footprint, lower weight and improved performance.  

Clarke Valve products are fully interchangeable with traditional globe control valves.

Regardless of industry, our goal is to solve problems and help our customers run their businesses more efficiently and profitably.

Kyle Daniels, chief executive officer, Clarke Valve, said the alliance is key to providing the support that oil and gas customers demand. “With installations at oil majors throughout and beyond the Gulf Coast, our goal is to make sure our customers are matched with top-notch sales and service professionals within driving distance of their plants,” he explained. “Rawson/Industrial Controls’ vast network will provide us with that capability, and we are confident that their experience and service infrastructure will help leverage our position in the Texas, Oklahoma, the Gulf Coast and other markets.”
