At Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company, we have a history of solving tough problems. We pioneer highly engineered solutions to deliver profound value to our customers and we enable them to transform the way their business is done. It begins with a passion for understanding the needs of our customers. Add to that our unparalleled technical expertise, an unmatched record of quality and service, and a long heritage of innovative thinking.
We are a leader in designing and manufacturing highly engineered valves, pumps, motors, generators, electronics and systems for the commercial nuclear power industry, oil and gas processing facilities, a range of national defense programs and other industrial markets. Our high performance products play an integral role in the safe, efficient operation of industrial sites worldwide. Curtiss-Wright Flow Control’s leadership team is headed up by David C. Adams. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation of Parsippany, NJ.
Our history dates back to the dawn of commercial and military aviation. We were created through the merger of companies originally founded by Orville and Wilbur Wright, and Glenn Curtiss, whose technological innovations in naval aviation in the early 1900s paved the way for the air superiority that remains a major part of America’s defenses nearly a century later.
During World War I, the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Corporation was the largest military aircraft manufacturer in the world, employing more than 21,000 workers and producing more than 100 planes each week in support of America and her allies. Curtiss-Wright played an equally important role in World War II, as our factories built more than 29,000 aircraft, including the famous P-40 Warhawk plane flown by the legendary “Flying Tigers.”
Later, we began building components for the U.S. Navy, and our technology can be found aboard nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers dating back to the commissioning of USS Nautilus in 1954.
Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company had annual sales of $1 billion in 2011 and is on target to achieve $2 billion in sales over the next few years. We employ more than 3,400 employees across 25 business units, including such industry leaders as Benshaw, DeltaValve, Enertech, EMD, EPD, Farris Engineering, GROQUIP, Indal Technologies, Nova Machine Products, Nu-Torque, Peerless, QualTech NP, Scientech, Solent & Pratt, Sprague Products, TapcoEnpro International and Target Rock.
We sell products and services globally, with operations in 15 countries, including Australia, Central and South America, the UK and Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Our business units have become part of our organization because they share the same dedication and entrepreneurial spirit handed down to us by our founders. We embrace the toughest challenges with our passion to explore the limits of our innovation. Pushing past what others thought was possible — this is what drives us. It’s who we are. It’s what we do. It’s our definition of engineering transformation.
