The Milwaukee Valve Company was established in Wisconsin in 1901, starting out as a small manufacturer of plumbing and heating valves. Herschel Seder purchased the business in 1959, with his late partner, Max Koenigsberg. Over the years, the company expanded its offering to what now consists of over 5,000 items, used in a very wide range of applications and industries, from very small plumbing valves used in the basement of your home, to large petro chemical valves and nearly every size and style of valve in between.
Because of our long history, our experience in a broad range of services, and finally our people, many of who have been with the company for 25 years or more, we have developed a unique blend of capabilities unmatched in our industry by any of our competitors. The purpose of this write-up is to outline these capabilities for the benefit of our current and future customers. We are an international organization on both the supply and sales sides of the business. We apply our stringent quality controls to the production of all material, whether we make it in our factories in Wisconsin, or our wholly owned operation in China, or one of our joint ventures elsewhere in the world.
