Metallurgical valves in 2022 and in the future

The year 2022 is a breakthrough year for the segment of metallurgical valves in ARMATURY Group a.s.

As you have already been informed, at the beginning of the year, a separate business group was established under the leadership of Sami Leinonen to provide sales and services to metallurgical companies all around the world.

To support the activity of this department, the new was created. This catalogue is conceived completely differently than all previous editions. It is a comprehensive overview of special valves manufactured for metallurgical plants, without dimensional tables and detailed descriptions. Catalogue sheets will be sent to customers in case of their interest in a specific type of valve. The new catalogue also includes new types of valves and, above all, considers the investment in a new machining centrum, which enables us to produce even larger valve dimensions in metallurgical valves.
