AZ-Armaturen South Africa, a subsidiary of the German AZ-Armaturen Group is excited to have reached its 30-year anniversary as a leading manufacturer of high quality plug valves and special valve solutions.
The company is proud to celebrate three decades of progress, success, development and its commitment to manufacture sleeved, self-lubricating plug valves in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The AZ-Armaturen Group manufactures industrial valves, particularly plug valves for many production facilities in the chemical, petrochemical, mining, power, pharma, paper and food industries. The family owned business was founded 1963 in the Black Forest in Germany, where the first plug valves were manufactured. In 1985, AZ-Armaturen South Africa was founded as the first manufacturing subsidiary.
Since the day of founding, AZ South Africa has been committed to manufacturing the majority of AZ’s product range locally and to purchase castings and raw materials from South African suppliers. In 1995 and 2009 respectively, the manufacturing plants in Brazil and China were established. The AZ-Armaturen Group is nowadays one of the leading plug valve manufacturers globally.
During the 30 years that the company has been in existence, AZ-Armaturen South Africa has been on a journey of continuous development, working hand in hand with our customers, to manufacture valves for increasingly more demanding applications.
Global growth, market-driven product innovation and the utilization of new materials and innovative production processes can only be achieved with a team of motivated employees. The employees make the significant contribution to the fact that important new patents are invented and that the productivity of the manufacturing processes increases continuously.
In that sense, AZ-Armaturen South Africa would like to offer its heartfelt thanks to customers, employees, suppliers and partners for their continuous support.
