Curtiss-Wright Acquires Brazilian Valve Company

Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial division has purchased the valve division of Brazil’s Engemasa Engenharia E Materiais Ltda. The new acquisition will join Curtiss-Wright Industrial’s Farris Engineering business unit and form Farris Brazil Industria de Valvulas Ltda.

The business currently manufactures a proprietary brand of pressure relief valves for the Brazilian petroleum, petrochemical, sugar cane and chemical industries.

“Farris Brazil will consolidate sales, operations, manufacturing, service and repair in one location to service Farris’ large installed base of pressure relief valves within Brazil, as well as all our South and Central American customers, bringing a new level of efficiency to those relationships,” said Kevin Rayment, senior vice president & general manager, Curtiss-Wright Industrial division.
