Rotork is pleased to announce the acquisition of Valco Valves and Automation AS, the group’s long-standing sales and service agent in Norway

Valco Valves and Automation, which will now be known as Rotork Norway, has over thirty years’ experience of the valve actuation and control industries, encompassing sales, servicing, maintenance, repairs and total valve management. The business is based at a 900 square metre workshop facility in Agotnes near Bergen, which offers full service and overhaul support for all Rotork products, including large fluid power actuators. The company is particularly active in the offshore topside and subsea oil and gas industry, with six offshore trained staff enabling service work to be performed anywhere in the country – including the offshore sector – even at short notice.

The acquisition enables Rotork to further develop its involvement in Norway through increased sales and service offerings for electric and fluid power actuation products, control systems and valve accessories.

Rotork Group CEO, Peter France, explained: “The acquisition of Valco Valves and Automation strengthens our presence in the important Norwegian market. Our strategy is to provide our customers with local support and this acquisition continues our international expansion plan. Please join me in welcoming General Manager Vidar Rossgård and his team to the Rotork family.”
