Sector: Production of components for the control of flows

Valvitalia, based in Rivanazzano Terme (Pavia), is one of the leading manufacturers in the world for flow control components (shut-off valves, security and control, actuators, fittings, flanges and complete systems) for the Oil & Gas, electricity generation, desalination and shipbuilding sectors.

Valvitalia produces almost entirely in Italy - with about 1,000 direct employees and a further 2,000 in related industries - and sells all over the world, exporting over 85% of its products.

Despite being a relatively young group, Valvitalia was founded through the merger of 8 companies (Tormene, Vitas, Rotor, Thevignot, Vanadour, DVE, Tecnoforge and Broady), with histories dating back to the beginning of the 1900 and with a significant heritage of valves production for the Oil & Gas sector.
