The AVS story

Who says age is just a number?

We call the history of AVS a legacy of lessons. Explore milestone moments that got us from a one-province, one-company, one-product supplier to the Allied Valve Specialists we are today.
Our first valve company
The year it all began! We bought our first valve company, Mineline. This was when we took our first big (baby) steps into the valve industry! In Gauteng, at least.
Our first product
Butterfly valves! In the early nineties, we entrenched ourselves as reliable manufacturers to the mining industry. Whether from the coal or the butterflies, we soon got itchy feet.
