W&O Supply Completes Acquisition of Nation's Fastest Growing Ball Valve and Automation Supplier.

Acquisition of A-T Controls, Inc. Will Result in Greater Service and Products for the Marine and Offshore Market

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- W&O Supply, the nation's largest distributor of marine valves, pipe, fittings, engineered and automated valve systems, announced today it has completed the acquisition of A-T Controls Inc., the fastest growing ball valve and automation supplier in the country.

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, A-T Controls designs, develops and manufactures valves, actuators and valve control products including manual ball valves and automated ball valve packages; actuators for the automation of all forms of valves; positioners for precise modulating control; and valve control accessories including gearboxes and overrides, block and bleed valves, dribble control systems, lock-up valves, flow and speed control, dome indicators, filter/regulators and more. A-T Controls is Certified to ANSI / ISO / ASQ Q9001 - 2000.

As the nation's largest distributor of automated valve products for marine applications, this acquisition compliments W&O Supply's strategic plan to continue to provide value-added services to the maritime industry and further exemplifies the company's furious growth. W&O Supply has doubled its annual revenue during the last six years.

A-T Controls will continue to operate autonomously and continue to provide world-class customer service to its customers that the company has built its reputation on for the last 10 years. A-T Controls' distribution network and OEM base has been, and will continue to be, the foundation for its growth and success.

"This acquisition is consistent with our strategy to continue to offer our customers more engineered and automation products, as well as, highly regarded brand name valve products like the Triac line produced by A-T Controls," said David Turner, President and CEO, W&O Supply. "With this infusion of capital, we are looking to expand the services of A-T Controls with its current customer base."
