Back in 1982, Milwaukee Valve had already been serving the marine industry for 18 years. We manufactured bronze manual valves for commercial and military vessels, including aircraft carriers, submarines, missile defense cruisers, minesweepers and destroyers for the U.S. Navy. Over the past 54 years, we have become a major presence in every shipyard in the country.
Our military contracts have helped us maintain the highest possible quality standards in valve design and production. That’s because the U.S. Navy requires it for all the valves they buy. And we’re subject to their stringent inspections that monitor quality control in our plants. Having raised the bar so high, it’s only natural that we took this refined product development model and applied it to our commercial and industrial valve lines too. We incorporate strict quality control in all production in our factories in Wisconsin, our wholly-owned operations and with our supplier partners in the U.S. and around the world.
