Alkon Corporation is a multinational manufacturer and global supplier of superior quality valves, fittings and flow controls. Also, our main manufacturing facility, the Ohio plant, has grown from 7,000 to over 60,000 square feet. Our facility in Mexico produces forgings and performs primary machining on many parts. We are unique in many ways. We’ve been privately held for more than 30 years. Our executives are major shareholders in the company and are not only active in the company every day, but passionate about our success.
Alkon began as a small startup with a single line in Hawthorne, New Jersey, in the mid-1950s. We’ve grown every year since.
We started making valves in the mid-1960s and developed several innovative, now-patented designs. In 1982 we introduced our unique line of brass push-to-connect (PTC) fittings. In 1999 we moved our corporate headquarters to Fremont, Ohio. In 2000 our valve offering quadrupled with the purchase of ISI Fluid Power.
We are a relationship-based company — large enough to handle just about anything you require and small enough to know you by first name.
We believe that:
- People and relationships are the most important elements of our business and that relationships work best when both parties are invested in them.
- Corporations can grow without outgrowing their founding beliefs.
- Entrepreneurial spirit and innovation are not dictated by company size, but by the size of the heart in the company.
It is our pledge to ensure robust quality in every Alkon product and service through continuous improvement in all aspects of our business, innovative design, dependable delivery and loyal customer relations.
