Global fluid handling solutions company OPW, part of Dover Corporation, has bought US-based Girard Equipment’s ISO Liquid Tank Container product line.
The product family includes manlids, pressure/vacuum relief vents, airline ball valves, composite footvalves and top discharge butterfly valves. OPW will manufacture the product line at its facility in Lianyungang City, Jiangsu Province, China, and plans to increase its presence and product portfolio in the Asia-Pacific, Latin American and European regions.
‘We have great respect for the Girard brand and believe that it represents a great opportunity for us to grow our presence in the ISO market,’ says Azam Owaisi, VP & GM of OPW Fluid Transfer Solutions. ‘This new product range also fits seamlessly into our ongoing efforts to improve the range of products we can offer our customers.’
