Henry Pratt Company Completes Integration of Lined Valve Company

10/11/16 - Henry Pratt Company has completed the integration of Lined Valve Company, the knife gate valve manufacturer and supplier it acquired more than two years ago. 

Effective October 1, the Lined Valve Company, LVC and A-C brands will transition to the Pratt brand. 

The Company will maintain the LVC casting mark and style designation. For example, Lined Valve Company’s Figure 53 will now be called Pratt LVC Figure 53. A-C figure numbers will change to Pratt LVC figure numbers.

Subsequent to the acquisition, the IT systems, business processes, and strategic goals of Lined Valve Company were aligned with those of Pratt. The alignment of the sales and marketing organizations and the transitioning of the brands completes the integration.

“Pratt has one of the broadest valve product offerings in the U.S. water and wastewater industries,” said Steve Sharp, Vice President/General Manager of Henry Pratt Company. “The integration of LVC’s knife gate valves strengthens this offering, and Pratt’s strong brand recognition should increase awareness of the Company’s knife gate valves.”

Henry Pratt Company is a division of Mueller Co., one of the most respected names in water infrastructure and flow control products. The Company recently launched a new Pratt website, which incorporates the LVC line of knife gate valves.
