History

Alkon are unique in many ways. They've been privately held for more than 30 years. Their executives are major shareholders in the company and are not only active in the company every day, but passionate about their companies success.

Alkon began as a small startup with a single line in Hawthorne, New Jersey, in the mid-1950s. They’ve grown every year since.

They started making valves in the mid-1960s and developed several innovative, now-patented designs. In 1982 they introduced a unique line of brass push-to-connect (PTC) fittings. In 1999 they moved their corporate headquarters to Fremont, Ohio. In 2000 their valve offering quadrupled with the purchase of ISI Fluid Power.

Today, Alkon Corporation is a multinational manufacturer and global supplier of superior quality valves, fittings, and flow controls. Also, their main manufacturing facility, the Ohio plant, has grown from 7,000 to over 60,000 square feet. Their facility in Mexico produces forgings and performs primary machining on many parts.

Universal Power Conversion is proud to distribute Alkon Products to our customers.
